Teaching Our Children Boating Safety

Of course, it is of paramount importance that our children are safe on the water and so I present these photos for your edification.

First a cautious approach to the dock:

Always be aware of dangers:

Is that one honk for port and two for starboard?

Actually the goslings were tucked away somewhere while the parents fed but they did take time out to give the eagle a drive by honking. I imagine the conversation went something like, "Don't you even think about looking at my children or we will kick your feathery butt into the next dimension. That's right, you might be a symbol of might every else in the world but in my neighborhood your just an ass whooping waiting to happen."
