A Quicker Trip to Riding Mountain than Planned – part 2

Today I’ll fill in some of the blanks from yesterday’s post – just for something different. 🙂 After I found out that the car shouldn’t be driven, I called Cindy at the Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast to cancel my 2 nights. Soon after that I found out that the car wouldn’t be towed until the… Continue reading A Quicker Trip to Riding Mountain than Planned – part 2

A Quicker trip to Riding Mountain than planned

The trip started out nice & early as usual and I was in Portage la Prairie for the sunrise. All was going fine until I slowed down for a town on the highway and the car started making an annoying noise. As I past the town and sped up again, the noise disappeared. Then I… Continue reading A Quicker trip to Riding Mountain than planned

Looking for Hummingbirds

I haven’t been to the English Gardens looking for Hummingbirds for awhile – and the last time I went to the Gardens was a chilly morning, so they weren’t active yet. Today, I went in the afternoon when it was nice & warm. Unfortunately, they were too fast this time – LOL – but I… Continue reading Looking for Hummingbirds

The English Garden in Assiniboine Park

This morning I decided to head over to the English Garden in Assiniboine Park to see if I could find any Hummingbirds or Indigo Buntings. I did see one hummingbird, but it didn’t stay long enough for a photo – and I didn’t see an Indigo Bunting, but think I heard one. So – I… Continue reading The English Garden in Assiniboine Park

A Walk Around Kildonan Park

On my drive out to Lockport the other day, I saw a hot air balloon floating in the sky. I remembered the day I finally had a ride in that balloon. I say finally – because it took several bookings before the weather was just right, but it was worth the wait. After that thought,… Continue reading A Walk Around Kildonan Park

Taking a Break from Packing

I have quite a bit of my packing done and will be living with boxes for awhile. There isn’t much more I can do now since I am still living here for 3 1/2 weeks. I was going to head for Oak Hammock Marsh, but changed my mind while driving and went to Lockport to… Continue reading Taking a Break from Packing

What – Another Move???

As many of you know, I lived in my little old house for 33 years. I sold it when I retired, since I wouldn’t be able to afford the upkeep on it with just my pensions. It was a very old house (built in 1900). I am currently in my 3rd apartment in the 4… Continue reading What – Another Move???

A Drive through 3 Manitoba Provincial Parks in 1 Day

When I left the apartment this morning I hadn’t planned on driving through 3 Provincial Parks – but I did. When I returned home, I decided to find out how many Provincial Parks are in Manitoba – maybe I can set a higher goal for another drive. 🙂 Google search tells me there are 92… Continue reading A Drive through 3 Manitoba Provincial Parks in 1 Day

Pelicans at Lockport

Pelicans are so much fun to watch. Sometimes they are a bit of a challenge to photograph, but I just keep snapping and usually end up with some fairly good photos. One thing I noticed today is the way they fish together. Each bird in the group dives at the same time and comes back… Continue reading Pelicans at Lockport

A Hot Summer Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

I had planned on heading out to either the Whiteshell Provincial Park or Grand Beach Provincial Park today, to spend some time with my feet in a lake. Unfortunately, rain was in the forecast, so I decided to hang out in Winnipeg and headed to Fort Whyte Alive. All signs of rain left and it… Continue reading A Hot Summer Morning at Fort Whyte Alive
