Kant rightly said that 'you can tell the heart of a man by his treatment of animals'.
Cro says 'you can tell the spirit of a man by his attitude towards swimming'.
I love to see children swimming; even at Bunny's age. Children have such a wonderful relationship with water; they throw themselves into it with such gusto, splashing around with unbridled joy. They dive-bomb, and try to drown each other; they forget all their worries (if indeed they have any), and they become totally liberated.
I am so pleased to see that Bunny loves water. I've recently encountered one or two children who wouldn't go near a pool, and it worries me; rather like when I see a child who's afraid of dogs. It just ain't right.
Anyway, here's Bunny and Kellogg enjoying their yesterday afternoon's swim.
Seriously good photo. © Cro Magnon!!!
Very very good photo and a lot of happyness in it.ReplyDelete
Such a big smile wrapped in a sweet little one.ReplyDelete
The pool looks totally inviting - Bunny certainly looks as though he is enjoying it.ReplyDelete
A delightful photo - it is good that he is growing up liking the water. I can still remember panicking when swimming at the local pool as I was sinking - I can also remember mother thinking it a great joke. Have never liked water since.ReplyDelete
Lovely photo and good to see that Bunny looks so happy in the water. Won't be long before he's swimming - especially if Grandpa has anything to do with it.ReplyDelete
The mermaid and child.ReplyDelete
It's a work of art, and exudes joy! The colour! The space! That smile!ReplyDelete
Now that really is a seriously good photograph, Cro. Definitely one to keep.ReplyDelete
I probably shouldn't say so, but I thought the same!Delete
I hate seeing children that aren't afraid of dogs. The amount of parents that let their kids go up and embrace strange dogs is frightening.ReplyDelete
Urban dogs/Country dogs; not the same thing.Delete
Proud Grandpa - lovely photo.ReplyDelete
Yup...great photo....what a grin. Perfect. No need to say "Enjoy". J.ReplyDelete
Bunny's smile is precious, but I see the love on his mother's face. No one will ever love him more.ReplyDelete
It's a classic mother and baby pic.Delete
Pure unbridled joy on that little face.ReplyDelete
A very happy face indeed.ReplyDelete
It makes me smile from ear to ear.ReplyDelete
As for dogs, I always loved them and grew up with them, but getting bitten twice when I showed no fear (and one was a dog I knew and had petted previously with no problems) made me wary.
What a happy wee soul.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous photo and I agree totally our boy still has swimming lessons, loves kayaking at our local water park and bodyboarding and surfing in the sea. It's the way it should be, my Mother in law is 79 and has never learnt to swim which I think is very sad, especially as they often rent gites with pools that she never uses !ReplyDelete
She's had a long time to think about it; I wonder if she regrets it.Delete
I think she regrets that she has never had the opportunity to play in water with her children and grandchildren :(ReplyDelete
Totally adorable! This pic is a delight. It put a smile on my face while I am waiting for surgery later today, so thanks Cro!ReplyDelete
