swan boats

This is Lake Eola in central Orlando. These swan boats are foot powered paddle boats that you can rent for cruising around the lake on. I use the word cruising cautiously because the foot pedals connected to the boat paddles are a very inefficient method of propulsion and you have to work your butt off to get the swan boat to “go”. It would be a great way to get your exercise. You don’t have to get on a stationary exercise bike to get a work-out, just rent a paddle boat and “cruise” from one side of the lake to the other.

Do you think that the woman on the dock is trying to feed one of the swan boats thinking that it is just a large swan?

I can’t decide. What do you think? Lew
