The Royal Swan

Royal SwanAs many who venture out on the Rideau River in Old Ottawa East know there are mute swans that are descendants of swans given to Canada by the Queen for the country’s 100th birthday.  They are beautiful and majestic. When the water is smooth their white bodies (there are a few black swans too) mirror off the water with a perfect reflection. One of the swans in OOE is the Royal Swan of Brantwood. This special swan engages many visitors on the river and for me feels like a friend.
