Lulu Letty: Flight of the Swan

Flight of the Swan

Even though it was incredibly windy, Cole and I couldn't resist the sunshine, so we went for a bike ride. Let me just say that I am completely out of shape. I do not recall riding a bike being so completely exhausting. My legs were screaming by the second block! Luckily we stopped for a little rest on the golf course (closed on Mondays), sat beneath some willows and enjoyed watching a massive swan take flight.

How on earth did you manage to capture that swan's takeoff?! Perfect timing!! This looks really really romantic and wonderful. I love what you're wearing, as well.

So my frienh Shine and I have decided that you live in a fairy tale and we are jealous! Youre bike and my bike are twins, but my is red. I think they'd be great friends.

That's a gorgeous place, I really wish I had a similar one near here... maybe I should investigate, but the pity is... that I can't ride a bike! It sounds ridiculous, but yes... I fell off from a bike when I was a child and I'm so scared of it!!

Sam  – (April 27, 2010 at 4:24 AM)  

Such wonderful photo's! And that scenery... Those willows are gorgeous. And I also indeed love the gif of the swan, haha!

Oo Millie got an outing...even if it killed you!

The photo's are just beautiful, what a gorgeous location. The swan taking flight is just so wonderful.

Thanks to you both,

My parents knew a swan on a golf course that would attack the golfers.

Stéphanie  – (April 27, 2010 at 7:54 AM)

katrina  – (April 27, 2010 at 1:44 PM)  

a bike's been on my wish list for some time now and i am feeling intense bike envy. what a cute bike you have, and with a woven basket to boot!

as always, these pictures are gorgeous and so are you.

jamilah  – (April 27, 2010 at 2:43 PM)  

what a gorgeous setting! how awesome that you got to see the swan take flight?? i bet that was neat to see in person... thank you for sharing =)

I've recently been feeling incredibly out of shape lately myself, but I think this is because I just hosted a marathon runner at my house for a week. I have no desire to start running or anything, though. Ha!

Your bike is lovely!

idée_géniale  – (April 27, 2010 at 3:47 PM)  

Oht these pictures are stunning! Espcially that first one! wow.

So jealous of your new bike! I love how its been creeping in your pictures lately....

KellyAnn  – (April 27, 2010 at 4:23 PM)  

beautiful photgraphs. You look like Audrey Hepburn and a photographer caught you taking an elegant rest. very pretty :)

jessica  – (April 27, 2010 at 4:25 PM)  

You and Millie are too cute! It looks like you and Cole had a wonderful day! That swan take off is amazing! Don't worry... I'm super out of shape too :)

Amanda  – (April 27, 2010 at 7:52 PM)  

I love these photos, especially the last one of you! Your sunglasses are too cute!

Gosh, who knew bike riding was so tough? I remember picking mine up about a year ago...and by the end, my legs and bottom were sore beyond belief! I remember it being so much easier as a kid...

Manja  – (April 28, 2010 at 9:55 AM)  

The photos are so beautiful!

Yes, bike riding can be really exhausting! When I am in germany I mostly drive around in my car and then, back in the Netherlands, I am noticing that I am already a little out of shape if I haven't been riding for some days, hehe.

Kristina  – (April 28, 2010 at 12:09 PM)  

I absolutely LOVE this whole shoot. The outfits, the bike, the willow tree... it's so romantic. Definitely inspiring for me to try more sophisticated outfits when riding my bike - the usual workout clothes need to go. I'd love to see more photos from your bike adventures!

Rosie  – (April 28, 2010 at 2:54 PM)  

Wow, such fabulous photos!

Starr Crow  – (April 28, 2010 at 4:51 PM)  

i'm so in love with your new bike. you guys did a great job fixin' her up! this day looks so relaxing and fun. tell cole that his gif is amazing!!

Jolly Josi  – (April 30, 2010 at 12:14 PM)
