Photos taken in Boston's Public Gardens, Home of the Swan Boats
Boats need water. The Gardens have a pond that's just the right size for swan boats.
Let's look at the pond before looking at the boats.
Paddle powered Swan Boats
The swan boats are a relaxing ride. Passengers are accompanied on their trip by the ducks who make the pond their summer home.
The ride is calming because the boats are paddle powered. The energy used to propel the boats is supplied by a person, not a noisy gasoline motor.
