Continuing Yesterday’s Walk

After making it back to my car, I started my drive back home. As I have mentioned before – I am completely directionaly challenged. Since this was my first time coming into this parking lot, I got to a spot where the road split in 2 different directions and I picked the wrong one. BUT,… Continue reading Continuing Yesterday’s Walk

It Felt Good to Get Out and Really Walk

For the first time in several days, the rain stopped and the sun came out. I often walk in any weather, but several days of pouring rain along with some cold weather kept me inside. I still walked though. My apartment building is a full block long and I walk up & down the stairs… Continue reading It Felt Good to Get Out and Really Walk

Anna’s Hummingbirds

I knew the winters were much milder in B.C. than they are in Winnipeg (often called Winterpeg), but I did not realize that even in freezing weather, these little birds do stay. Of course, freezing weather here is just under… Continue reading Anna’s Hummingbirds

Fairfield Island

My friend Karen – who used to live in Chilliwack gave me directions to Fairfield Island for a place to walk. So, today the sun was shining and I decided it would be a good day to check it out. To get there I had to drive on a road over the Hope River Bridge… Continue reading Fairfield Island

Chem Lake Wetlands Walk

It was a beautiful morning today, so I thought a return visit to the Chem Lake Wetlands would be a good way to spend some time. I thought about taking my pair of shoes that has spikes in case it was slippery there, but instead decided that since the ice & snow are disappearing quickly,… Continue reading Chem Lake Wetlands Walk

Ice on the Pond

I headed over to Sardis Park & Pond this morning. It is a beautiful sunny morning with the temperature right at 0C with a slight wind to make it feel a bit cooler than that. So far, I am really loving this winter. The water looks to be a bit chilly this morning, but there… Continue reading Ice on the Pond
