What can I say about the one in my photo!
I don't know if he is an Austrian breed or what, but I have never seen one like him before.
I was glad he was on a leash.
Does anybody know if he is a particular breed?
Most any visitor will certainly remember their walk along the Esplanade. Making that memory more memorable is the number of Swans, ducks, and coots on the lake at any given time. These beautiful creatures add to the vibrant quality of the lake.
Many a visitor or resident will stop along the path and gaze at or feed (not permitted by the way) the beautiful birds, especially the swans. If you're lucky, you'll get to see the swans in flight. Certainly a sight to see.
Fondest memory: Standing at the Esplanade during my first trip to Austria (back in 1999), I was fortunate enough to see the swans fly from one part of the Traunsee to another part. They're not exactly the most graceful of the avian species, but their beauty certainly makes them look very graceful!
Favorite thing: Ort consists of two castles, the Landschloss and the Seeschloss , connected by a wonderful 400 foot-long wooden bridge build before 1110 AD !
