A Southampton Swan Song

How often does a swan crash a pool party and steel the show? Well that’s what happened to me recently when I was visiting a dear friend at her home in Southampton, Long Island.

One minute, I’m happily floating around her pool on a giant inflatable griffon and the next I’m doing the backstroke next to a swan.

Okay, maybe the swan thought that the griffin was an overblown version of her and decided to join in on the fun. But it’s also because she hailed from the Hamptons, where being particularly social and sometimes downright pushy is in the DNA.

Whatever the case, the photographs tell the story…from the moment she popped into the pool, did her laps and then exited to rejoin her family in an adjacent pond.

Here’s to summer memories, in the making.


Tag along as I share musings on everything from family to business, which will hopefully inspire you and stir the mind. I am happy that you are along for the journey. Here’s to Living Lively!
