A Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Right after Christmas, I purchased a new coat during the boxing day sales.  It is much warmer than anything I have had before and would come in handy while volunteering at the zoo and walking at Fort Whyte Alive.  The weather was warmer than usual during this time, so I didn’t wear it until today… Continue reading A Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Beautiful Winter day at Oak Hammock Marsh

Friday was a bright & sunny morning with temperatures around the 0C mark.  I couldn’t let a day like this go by without getting out and taking some pictures and since I haven’t been to Oak Hammock Marsh for awhile, that is where I headed. I got there just before noon and decided to have… Continue reading Beautiful Winter day at Oak Hammock Marsh

Back at the Zoo

I spend quite a bit of time at the Assiniboine Park Zoo – both as a volunteer and sometimes just as a member on my own time. A couple of days ago, I had to be there for a meeting in the afternoon, so I decided to go a bit earlier with my camera. Inside Assiniboine… Continue reading Back at the Zoo

Windchill at Fort Whyte Alive

It looked like a beautiful morning today and the temperature was starting at -4C this morning and rising to -1C during the day.  Unfortunately the forecast didn’t mention the wind and therefore the windchill.  It wasn’t just that I just missed it, since I talked to others who said the same thing.  I didn’t realize… Continue reading Windchill at Fort Whyte Alive

Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Part 3, Viola Desmond

Viola Desmond is one of the Canadian human rights stories in the museum.  I didn’t take many pictures of her small exhibit, but when I go back again soon I will look to see if there is more.  I do have links to websites with more information that I will add though. Most of us… Continue reading Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Part 3, Viola Desmond

Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Part 2, Nelson Mandela

It was less than a 5 minute walk to the Canadian Museum of Human Rights from the Forks, so I was soon inside, where I lined up to pay my admission. The lineup moved along quickly and I had soon paid for my admission.  It is $17.00 per day for a Senior.  I asked about… Continue reading Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Part 2, Nelson Mandela
