this past weekend my mom surprised mike and i with a trip to lasalle park, overlooking the hamilton harbour in burlington. she had recently learned that the once endangered trumpeter swans were being brought back to ontario by one dedicated individual. the swans are tagged for tracking and research purposes.

it was a special treat to spend some time with the swans and i hope to see more of them.
but not any black swans because that movie scared the crap out of me.
