​​​ ​Plenty Co​mes To Islandside

With the two breeding pairs on Harbourside, there's plenty of opportunities to view the swans doing their graceful maneuvers all year round.  But with the addition of a third female pair to Islandside, we just may now have parity.


Lacy and Sylvia are from the 2014 nest of Stan and Wendy.  Lacy is named after my 15 year old Bichon Frise.  A dog, yes.  But a dog I'm certainly proud of, one who has a 10-year Pin from the Humane Society and Plymouth Harbor for over 500 visits to the Skilled Nursing Facility.  That's some high expectations for Lacy the swan, and I hope she will provide pleasure for all those traversing the fairways, pa​ssing by, or watching from Spike n Tees.



Sylvia, as is the case other swans, is a composite honoring all our canine pets.  Sylvia is actually a play that was performed at Florida Studio Theatre.  Sylvia is a person who featured her dogs in real estate ads.  Sylvia is a representative of our much loved pets such as Maggie, Zoe, Racket, Missy, Katie and many more who provide us empty-nesters with a reason to get up with the sun and take a walk in the grass.  Swans are wild, remote, yet so beautiful they are our pets in our minds.  Dogs we can touch, pet and get licks from.
