It was late afternoon, the sun was shining and I was driving along Lake Terrace in Bradley Beach which runs alongside Fletcher Lake and there she was – a large Canadian Goose was leading her little goslings by the side of the lake.  I sped home, ran in the house to get my camera and raced back to the lake.  As I slowly drove,  I scanned the lakeside looking for the darling feathered family.  NOTHING, nowhere to be seen.  Then as I arrived at the part of the road that veers away from Fletcher Lake, I noticed a lot of little bobbing heads on the grassy bank.  There was Mother Goose and it looked like Papa had joined her while the goslings ate.
