A beautiful day for a walk in the park. 

Saturday March 31, 2012.

Swan Lake Village area,
Markham, Ontario

Swan Lake Park
Mute Swan
Romeo and Juliet on their new nest.

It was a cold cloudy day when we went for the walk but I had heard that people had seen two additional swans on the lake. We did not see the other two swans and hope that they have migrated further north.
