Before the event Sal and I walked through the Boston Public Garden and saw a swan nesting.

Here she is, with her mate keeping watch from the water.

Here is another picture, with her male duck bodyguards surrounding her.

Another view, showing how many duck bodyguards she has!

Her mate came over to show off.

And here is a picture taken after the event, with the two swans on the nest together.

Finally, a couple of pictures of George Washington aglow!

Next time I will post some pictures taken at Castle Island, in South Boston, from earlier this same day!
