Prince of Whales Boat Tour

About 3 or 4 years ago, my daughter and I were booked on a Whale watching tour, but due to weather conditions and the need for me to get back home before snow fell in the mountains, we had to cancel. It had already been cancelled once by the company due to the weather. Now… Continue reading Prince of Whales Boat Tour

A Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

The last time I went to Fort Whyte Alive, I was prepared for wet & muddy paths and I wore my pair of rubber boots. The boots came in very handy as I waded through water & mud in a few spots. Today, I decided that it hadn’t rained in a few days and the… Continue reading A Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Finally – Back to Riding Mountain National Park

Spring was so slow to arrive this year and there are spots where snow still exists (just days before June). I’ve been wanting to get to RMNP for ages. Last year I was there in April, but this year the roads have been under water or washed out in many places. The park had even… Continue reading Finally – Back to Riding Mountain National Park

Starting the Day off with a Drive to Lockport

This has been a very bad spring with two blizzard/snow storms. The flooding from those storms mean that driving anywhere was taking a chance of getting very wet and/or breaking an axle on your vehicle by hitting giant potholes (many of which were hidden in large water puddles. So – I stayed home. Another storm… Continue reading Starting the Day off with a Drive to Lockport

A Morning at Lockport

I decided to head north to Lockport to see if any Pelicans were still hanging out there. It was a beautiful morning and I enjoyed the drive. When I reached Lockport, I headed for the little park where I can usually get some decent photos, but the bridge construction has pretty much blocked off the… Continue reading A Morning at Lockport

I put a lot of photos in this one, so smaller ones are shown on this page. On the… Continue reading My Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

A Fort Whyte Alive Walk This Morning

It was a chilly morning today, when I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive with my camera. The first tree I noticed has changed the leaves to yellow instead of the green they have been all summer. I guess autumn has officially arrived. I do love autumn, but it is just too close to winter.… Continue reading A Fort Whyte Alive Walk This Morning

Always Something to see at Fort Whyte Alive

I’ll start with my “before leaving home” shots. My Sunflower plant still has flowers but much smaller than the first ones and just at the bottom of the plant – and a Blue Jay on the tree just off my balcony. Then I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive to see what I could find.… Continue reading Always Something to see at Fort Whyte Alive

Hanging Around at Lockport

I left Bird’s Hill Provincial Park and drove to Lockport to take a look around. I found Pelicans and Cormorants. I found out that there was construction on the Lockport Bridge and that the speed limit on the bridge was 30 km, but before going over the bridge, I went into the park on the… Continue reading Hanging Around at Lockport

Walking Around Fort Whyte Alive with my Camera

It felt like ages since I’ve been to Fort Whyte Alive, but really, it has only been a couple of weeks. Walks are never the same though. I get to watch different critters/birds/reptiles/insects each time. It was a beautiful day for a walk. The heat wave which has been around for a few days was… Continue reading Walking Around Fort Whyte Alive with my Camera
