A mother and father swan stop traffic as they guide their newly hatched babies to the salt marsh on the other side of the Bundoran Road, outside of Mullaghmore, County Sligo, Ireland. The way gets complicated, but the swans overcome all obstacles. The babies tumble one by one into the water and paddle off toward the sunset. They never even had swimming lessons!
