It was said that Lake Morton’s swans were gorgeous.

One of the draws of Lakeland, FL that attracts nature lovers, is Lake Morton, and it is said the swans that swim there are direct descendants of the swans donated to the park by Queen Elizabeth in 1957.

I could not wait to get to Lake Morton & see if the swans really were mute, or if it was just a local legend.

I knew what swans sounded like, because I lived next to a lake that had been inhabited by swans, then they were loud & obnoxious. They were also absolutely territorial, however you consistently knew when they were nesting, because they would chase you down if you got too near the lake. I wondered if the same was tscheme with Lake Morton. I wondered which were the mute swans, because there were both colorless & black swans, then we figured it out abruptly when the black swans started chasing some unsuspecting teenagers, but along with swans, there were turtles, birds, & other types of wildlife at the lake. We spent nearly half a day there, until my friend and I realized how hot it had become & that I had forgotten my camera; My hubby didn’t suppose the PC was taking absolutely nice pictures, although I was enjoying myself, and eventually, the 100 degrees & 100% humidity was getting to us, & my friend and I had to go to the hotel where my friend and I had air conditioner. I hoped to return to Lake Morton now that my friend and I got some air conditioner, & I had my camera in hand. I wanted to have as many memories from Lakeland, FL as my friend and I could take household with us.
