Swanee River

On a stroll through Cuthbert Holmes Park behind Tillicum Mall (a real gem of urban wild space) we came upon this lovely pair floating on the Colquitz River in the late afternoon sun. It brought to mind this lovely old tune which I then found on Youtube sung by one of my favorite actors, Hugh Laurie (aka Dr. House) who is also a talented musician. Listen here - Fern Long

I found out a few years ago that the 'Swanee River' in the song is really supposed to be Suwanee River in FL. It's their state song. Beautiful reflections.

I'm immediately reminded of the swans they release here on the Rideau River for the summers. Beautiful birds to watch.
