Assiniboine Forest – Exploring a different area

Yesterday, I decided to check out a different area of the Assiniboine Forest. This is a large area that pretty much begins at the Assiniboine Park. The park starts at the Assiniboine River. Some areas in the park are bush and it is common to find White-tailed Deer right along with other urban wildlife. Corydon… Continue reading Assiniboine Forest – Exploring a different area

Walking the Trails in Assiniboine Park

Until my last move, I have always lived east of Assiniboine Park and always entered from the east. Since I moved west of the park a couple of months ago, I found out that there is a large western side of the park with trails. I have now been entering the west side and driving… Continue reading Walking the Trails in Assiniboine Park

A Stroll in Assiniboine Park

The temperature wasn’t much over 0C this morning, but the sun was shining and I grabbed my camera and headed out. Now that I am back in my apartment, the temperature is at 13C – so not bad, and the sun helps too. As I strolled along an asphalt path in the woods along the… Continue reading A Stroll in Assiniboine Park

Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Part 1, The Forks

The Canadian Museum of Human Rights opened in Winnipeg a little over 4 years ago and I finally decided it was time to visit. I took a bus to The Forks instead of paying for parking.  We had been spoiled with having free parking there for such a long time, that many of us are… Continue reading Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Part 1, The Forks

Toby Time

Last week, I spent a couple of days with my big buddy Toby, while his family was out of town.  This guy keeps me moving!  🙂 I took a few pictures to share with everyone.  Too many pictures to show full sized, but you can click on one and scroll through the larger sizes.  He… Continue reading Toby Time

A Walk with the Deer

I am back house/dog sitting with my big buddy Toby. It was time to go for a morning walk and we were greeted by some White-tailed Deer just outside the yard. They gracefully trotted away and we continued on to the river and walked along the edge.   A pair of Canada Geese were on the… Continue reading A Walk with the Deer

A Walk in the Park

On the way to visit my Mom in the hospital the other day, I decided to park my car in Assiniboine Park and walk from there, with my trusty little camera in my hand.  This is the same park as the English Gardens – just a different area of it. A nice leaf covered path… Continue reading A Walk in the Park

I am Home

Yesterday afternoon, I packed up my computers and brought them back home again.  I knew it would be a late night and I didn’t want to be doing this in the middle of the night.  So, I brought them back and got them hooked up before heading back to spend my last afternoon with Toby.… Continue reading I am Home

Moving On

Not today, but tomorrow, I’ll be moving back to my apartment.  The last 3 weeks have been fun and I’ll miss having a dog when I am living on my own again. I have posted most of the pictures I took of my 3 weeks with Toby on my FaceBook page, but I did save… Continue reading Moving On

Introducing Toby

He is not mine and I am only living at his place for 3 weeks, but for the next 3 weeks, you just might be seeing some Toby stories here.  Toby is a 15 month old Chocolate Labrador, and is quite a big guy at 120 lbs. I am dog/house sitting and along with Toby,… Continue reading Introducing Toby
