But the families were just soooooo cute, I had to talk to the grownups and tell them how beautiful their babies are!
And the whole flock headed to the river, unfortunately followed by Ellie. The next thing I knew there was a huge cacophony of geese scolding, mixed in with some sort of construction that chose to begin just at that moment, right across the river!
This was my fault. I was cooing at the geese and their babies, and SOMEONE got very jealous. Otherwise she can't be bothered with the noisy things.
