Finally, we had sunny, frosty, and snowy winter weekend. The Sun was blindingly bright, and on its harsh light the photography did not have semitones. However, it did not stop me to make some pictures of beautiful trumpeter swans.
I am not going to write down about this beautiful place. For me it is just one of my favorite places related to our happy life for 23 years in the most popular among the people town of Oakville. Paletta Park is not located in Oakville but in Burlington, however both of these two towns flow smoothly from one to the other. Crossing these towns we pretty often make a short visit to some of our favorite places. Unfortunately, the towns lost their charm because of being overpopulated and become mostly looking like a city. However in the early morning or bad weather they are still the same like we found them at the very first time we saw them.

The shortest night of the year has gone and the longest day is coming. Goodbye the summer solstice!
The trumpeter swans adorn the winter landscape of the La Salle Park every single year. However, they are not so numerous this year.
Spencer’s restaurant is a lovely place in Burlington, Ontario at the waterfront of the lake. Absolutely affordable and tasty food. Friendly personal. Amazing view. In the winter time you can watch the skating rink in front of restaurant. At the summer time it turns to the beautiful pond with the fountain.
It is really nice place for the weekend lunch or dinner with lovely companion.
Trumpeter Swan has been extirpated 200 years ago in Ontario due to hunting pressure and habitat loss. Biologist Harry Lumsden began a provincial reintroduction program in the early 1980’s to re-establish the Trumpeter swan in its former habitat and range.
One of the most popular wintering ground for these lovely birds is in Burlington La Salle Park. Quarter of their population found winter home for themselves. The Trumpeter Swan Coalition is a volunteer organization that take care of them.
Trumpeter Swans are gorgeous birds. However they are looking a little bit different of other swans and their sound absolutely different and really explained their name. The voice sounds like trumpet and all together they make an orchestra of trumpet musicians.
La Salle Park is the lovely place for birds lovers, family entertainment, and just for relaxing and enjoying the nature.
