To Churchill and Home in a Day – Part 2

When we left off yesterday, we were just getting ready to set out in the tundra buggy.  It soon became very apparent why rule #1 was that everyone must be sitting while we moved.  The trails that we drove on had rocks and holes and stretches of water where we could not even see what… Continue reading To Churchill and Home in a Day – Part 2

To Churchill and Home in a Day – Part 1

It was a very long day, but an amazing trip to and around Churchill before returning home again yesterday.  It would have helped if I had a good night’s sleep before leaving, but unfortunately I managed to toss and turn instead of sleeping that night.  It certainly was not the fault of the hotel –… Continue reading To Churchill and Home in a Day – Part 1

Churchill Adventure Begins

It hasn’t actually begun – but it is close now.  I am at a hotel near the airport in order to avoid having to get up at 4 am to head to the airport.  Instead I will rise at 5 am and get ready while waiting for my short ride to the airport with the… Continue reading Churchill Adventure Begins

Word Cloud – Pets

I found a free site that makes word clouds out of the words you choose.  You can pick the colours and sizes  of the words and the shape of the cloud.  There are some limitations on the free clouds and you can choose to pay to remove the limitations – I like this free one… Continue reading Word Cloud – Pets

Blue Jay Returns

I think the Blue Jay must have seen the pictures I took of him a couple of weeks ago and he came back to pose for some better ones.  🙂 I looked out my window and he was right on my balcony, checking out the bird feeder.  I moved slowly towards my camera in the… Continue reading Blue Jay Returns

South Africa Trip – Falling into Place

Next on the list is my trip to Kruger National Park in South Africa next year.  This trip has to be planned months in advance and then the wait begins.  I am happy to say that it is completely planned and it is paid for – except for the car rental (but it is reserved)… Continue reading South Africa Trip – Falling into Place

Falling into Place

Things are lining up nicely and falling into place lately  🙂 I have been having discussion with my ISP (Shaw) for  a couple of months about virus protection.  Shaw provides McAfee free of charge to all their internet subscribers.  Each subscriber gets 6 licenses  and over the several years I have been with them, I… Continue reading Falling into Place

Fort Whyte Alive – October

It was a beautiful day at Fort Whyte Alive!  I was so happy that I decided to be dropped off there while they worked on my car.  It was a little chilly in the morning, but by afternoon it was very pleasant. I normally spend about 2 1/2 to 3 hours there, but today I… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive – October

Full Moon

It was still dark when I got up this morning (which is how it will be for the next several months here now that we are heading into winter).  I had an appointment to get the car in to have winter tires put on and the summer ones stored until spring.  There were also a… Continue reading Full Moon

Assinibone Park Zoo & More Updates

It was a beautiful day yesterday and it has been awhile since I’ve taken a trip to the Assiniboine Park Zoo – so away I went.  I just brought my little camera with me, since it it always in my purse, and I wasn’t planning on taking many pictures – but I did take a… Continue reading Assinibone Park Zoo & More Updates
