A Tour of the Forks

The Forks in Winnipeg is situated at the fork of the Red and Assiniboine  Rivers just at the edge of the downtown area.  This is a very popular spot with many things to see and do.  I’ll give you a quick tour of the outside area and let you know that there is lots inside… Continue reading A Tour of the Forks

A Different View of the Zoo

Today I decided to concentrate more on the buildings and the spaces at the Assiniboine Park Zoo instead of the critters.  Of course, some critters still managed to get into a few photos, but I got many photos without critters too.  🙂 We will start with the entrance.  If you click on the pictures, you… Continue reading A Different View of the Zoo

Deer Day at Fort Whyte

The beautiful weather continued yesterday, so I spent the morning wandering the trails at Fort Whyte Alive.  With the temperature hovering around 0C and under a bright sunny sky, it was absolutely gorgeous. Deer were everywhere, but even though these deer must be used to people walking the paths, they are still very wary and… Continue reading Deer Day at Fort Whyte

A Winter Walk Along the Seine River

Finally it has warmed up enough here where it is nice to go for a walk outside.   It was -5C when I headed out under a bright sunny sky. I wasn’t sure if the path behind my complex would get me through the snow, so I went next door to use their path since that… Continue reading A Winter Walk Along the Seine River

Crockpot Garlic Sausage & Veggies

Every once in awhile I make something to eat that I like, so I share it with you.  As usual, I changed this a fair amount from the original one I found that was called Grilled Sausage & Vegetables in Foil Packet.  You can find the original recipe here, but searching the same name, I… Continue reading Crockpot Garlic Sausage & Veggies

Assiniboine Park Zoo – January

I am usually a fair-weather visitor to our zoo, but decided that it would be nice to see some of the critters out in the snow.  After all, we have many critters that thrive in winter conditions and I hoped they wouldn’t all be sleeping as they often are in the summer.  The temperature wasn’t… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Zoo – January

A Drive to Lockport

Lockport is usually a summer drive, but I decided to go there yesterday.  Lockport Appliances is where I have bough all of my household appliances over the years. All my fridges, stoves, washers, dryers came from them.  They deliver to Winnipeg and will remove your old one.  One time they got to my house before… Continue reading A Drive to Lockport

Assinboine Park and Conservatory

We have had more than enough snow and cold for the last few weeks, so yesterday I decided to head for the Conservatory at Assiniboine Park.  It has been a long time since I went through there and the plants and flowers are amazing to see. First some park pictures as I drove through.  As… Continue reading Assinboine Park and Conservatory

A Flock of Common Redpolls

I found out this morning what eats the seed pods from the River Birch that is just off my balcony.  There were dozens of Common Redpolls making short work of all those pods. They are not a bird that I am used to seeing, but the name did pop into my head.  I had to… Continue reading A Flock of Common Redpolls

A Drive Through St. Vital Park

It is a fairly nice day so far with snow lightly falling, just a little bit of wind and the temperature hovering around -15C.  They were predicting another storm, but it looks like that has been dropped from the Winnipeg forecast at this time. I decided to take a little drive through St. Vital Park… Continue reading A Drive Through St. Vital Park
