Meet Neko and Finnegan

As you may have noticed, I love all critters, so when I was asked if I could look after a couple of kitties, by just coming in a couple of times a day to give them food, water and some attention, I said yes. I went over and met the owner and the cats a… Continue reading Meet Neko and Finnegan

English Garden/Leo Mol in Assiniboine Park

The last few weeks, people have been posting pictures in a Manitoba Bird page on FaceBook that I follow.  They indicate they are finding Indigo Buntings in the English Garden in Assiniboine Park.  I have never seen one of these birds and decided to head there with my camera and see if I could find… Continue reading English Garden/Leo Mol in Assiniboine Park

Dog/House Sitting – Buddy & Coconut

I’ve found that looking after someone’s dog(s), so the owners can get away is great for me.  I get to spend time with the dog(s) with lots of kisses and a cuddly critter to sleep with – without having any expenses for food or veterinarian  services.  The bonus is that people will pay me to… Continue reading Dog/House Sitting – Buddy & Coconut

First stop was the Wishing Well, where I saw these White Suckers spawning. … Continue reading June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 4

June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 3

We finished yesterday’s entry as I was leaving the Boreal Trail in Riding Mountain National Park.  The walk had such a sweet ending when I met a gorgeous little Pine Marten.  The plan is to continue South and head for the Bison enclosure. I arrived at the Lake Audy Road without incident (or sightings), but… Continue reading June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 3
