Spring at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve

The Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve seemed like a great place to go for a walk yesterday. The ice is mostly gone, but on some of the little ponds where there is no moving water, there is still a layer of ice. I didn’t test to see how thin the ice was. Mallard Ducks and… Continue reading Spring at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve

The Return of Some Birds

This my first Spring in British Columbia and it has been very spring-like since December. I love this weather, but it is so hard to get used to seeing green grass in January along with the arrival of the migrating ducks and geese. Actually a good number of ducks and geese did not even head… Continue reading The Return of Some Birds

A Little Walk on a Cloudy Morning

Yesterday I received a letter from BCAA telling me that my payment had not gone through on my credit card on file and my membership would be cancelled if not rectified. About a week earlier, I had phoned them to renew this membership and was told that it had already been renewed. So, since I… Continue reading A Little Walk on a Cloudy Morning

Sunny Morning at Chem Lake Wetlands

We have had a few cloudy and/or rainy days lately, and when I saw the forecast was for sunshine I decided to head out to Chem Lake Wetlands for my walk. It was so beautiful in the sun! A Couple of views from the still frozen lake. The sun hadn’t made it past the mountains… Continue reading Sunny Morning at Chem Lake Wetlands

Back to the Greater Vancouver Zoo for a Walk

One of the nice things about walking around the zoo is that the paths are in great shape regardless of the weather. Many trails can get muddy and difficult to walk on. As usual, I started out by going left and walking up to where the Lions & Tiger are. The Lions were not visible,… Continue reading Back to the Greater Vancouver Zoo for a Walk

Back to Fairfield Island

Although rain was in the forecast, I decided that I needed a good walk, so I headed back to Fairfield Island with my camera. The sky was partly cloudy, but the sun did make its way out to brighten things up. He quickly brought his wing in and looked very majestic instantly.

I am Not used to having Spring in January

Being a lifelong Manitoba resident (until I moved west last summer), I am used to extreme cold with spring finally showing up around the end of March (sometimes) or April (more often). I am loving the British Columbia weather. This may be a one-time thing and next winter may last longer, but I am taking… Continue reading I am Not used to having Spring in January

The Vedder River Trail for the Rest of my Walk

I haven’t been back to the start of the Vedder River Trail since I found out about the other sections, but today I went back to the start for today’s walk. I went to the bridge that crosses the river & took photos looking both directions from under it. Between the roads twisting & turning… Continue reading The Vedder River Trail for the Rest of my Walk

A Happy New Year Walk

January 1st wasn’t great for walking, so I took a long walk on January 2nd. My first stop was the Sardis Park/Pond in Chilliwack. This is one of my favourite places to walk – but I have to admit that all the walking spots I’ve found so far are all my favourites – LOL. When… Continue reading A Happy New Year Walk

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
