Ultimate Lockdown

I don’t know if escape rooms are the in thing everywhere, but they do seem to be very popular in my area.  I had never tried one and had no idea what you were supposed to do (other than escape), and had no idea what you had to do to escape. Last night I got… Continue reading Ultimate Lockdown

Another Photo Shoot with St. Peanut

There is no doubt that I am going to miss this little guy when I move next week, so when St. Peanut decided to spend a few minutes here with a friend yesterday afternoon and again this morning, I took lots of pictures. Many of the pictures are far from perfect, since he continues to challenge… Continue reading Another Photo Shoot with St. Peanut

First – a co-operative Gull posed for me – then a Crow flew overhead.… Continue reading The Birds at Lockport

Ice and Waterfowl

The Red and Assiniboine Rivers in Winnipeg are moving the ice around and trying to get it out of town.  The Canada Geese and Mallard Ducks don’t seem to mind the ice cold water and swim happily in it. After breakfast I went over to The Forks, where the Red and Assiniboine Rivers meet to… Continue reading Ice and Waterfowl
