Fort Whyte Alive after a Fresh Snow

This morning I decided to head over to Fort Whyte Alive and so that is what I did and arrived a few minutes after they opened at 9:00 am. I stopped on the road as I was driving in to get a photo of some of the Canada Geese and Sea Gulls at the edge… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive after a Fresh Snow

Wandering Around

This morning I decided to take a return drive to Lockport to see how the river looked there, as well as seeing what birds and/or critters I could find. Of course, I always like watching the water flowing through the locks as well. I headed back to the car and started driving – ending up… Continue reading Wandering Around

A Morning Walk at Bunn’s Creek Trail

I was hoping that the beautiful weather we have been having would mean that the ice should have melted on the trails and for most of it, there was no ice. Most of the trail was dry, but parts were quite wet. I did run into an icy area and decided to turn around at… Continue reading A Morning Walk at Bunn’s Creek Trail

The Goats of Aunt Sally’s Farm

There are other critters at Aunt Sally’s Farm in the Assiniboine Park Zoo, but the goats are the main attraction and the interaction with the children will be amazing to watch. It is NOT a petting zoo – but the goats will be watching and interacting with all the visitors, especially the children. There are… Continue reading The Goats of Aunt Sally’s Farm

Assiniboine Park and Zoo

Many years ago – when I was a child – one of the highlights of going to the zoo was for an exhibit called Aunt Sally’s Farm. Back then the zoo was free to visit. When I say many years ago, it really was. I just had my 70th birthday today and I haven’t been… Continue reading Assiniboine Park and Zoo

An Afternoon at the Zoo when I am not volunteering

I usually volunteer at the Assiniboine Park Zoo about 3 time per week – but when volunteering, I can’t wander as I like and take photos – so it is nice to go on days when I can wander where I want. It is amazing how many people know who I am even when I… Continue reading An Afternoon at the Zoo when I am not volunteering

A Springtime walk around Fort Whyte Alive

This morning I decided to head over to Fort Whyte Alive for my walk. I phoned ahead to find out if the paths were still icy and they advised me that some spots were, but much has melted. I decided to put my spikes on just to be careful. It turned out that the spikes… Continue reading A Springtime walk around Fort Whyte Alive

Last Stop Today – Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

My car ended up taking me east again and when we reached Highway 59, we turned south to head back in the direction of home. But, when we got to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park we turned in there. I hadn’t been to the Cedar Bog trail since my “lost in Bird’s Hill Park day”, so… Continue reading Last Stop Today – Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

Towards Selkirk and North

I was kind of deciding to go west a bit, but once we were approaching Selkirk, we ended up going through and continuing north on the same road. It has been many years since I’ve been in Selkirk and it looks nothing like it did way back then. Just before Selkirk, I stopped to take… Continue reading Towards Selkirk and North

Walking around at Lockport

There was absolutely nothing written in my calendar for today – so I decided to head out to Lockport to look for birds and see how the ice on the river was there. There was actually more ice than I thought there would be – closer to the locks as well. Then I noticed a… Continue reading Walking around at Lockport
