おもしろそうに およいでる

Sensei:
I understand the part for ''interesting" and "swimming," but not the ending part in bold.

I suspect that they are grammar related. Any idea?
おもしろそうに およいでる

This line is from the Koi song.

These two forms are
1. the そう form of 面白い turned into an adverb with に (overall meaning and why そう is used)
2. the te-form of 泳ぐ, + いる (てる/でる is a casual contraction of ている/でいる)
