A Day in the Life

Today I got to spend a few hours with my little buddy – Coconut! His family was going to be away for much of the day and as he is aging, he has developed problems with his eyes. He needs regular drops in each eye a few times a day. Of course, I was willing… Continue reading A Day in the Life

An Early Walk to Avoid the Heat

It is very hot here now with temperatures in the hi 30C range. Right now it is starting to cool off and it is 35C (with a “feels like” 39C) We set a record high yesterday and today is similar, except that we are expected to end the day with a thunderstorm. I really missed… Continue reading An Early Walk to Avoid the Heat

Bunn’s Creek and Sturgeon Creek Walks

I thought that when I actually got a photo of one of the Cardinals that live around and near Bunn’s Creek, I would be satisfied – but I would really like better photos. So, I headed back there again a few days ago for another try. My first sighting that morning was upsetting. I found… Continue reading Bunn’s Creek and Sturgeon Creek Walks

A Stroll around Fort Whyte Alive

Spring means baby critters and a walk around Fort Whyte Alive seemed to be a good idea. Although I heard there were some Goslings there, I was unable to find them (this time). I did find critters and some large babies though. We are having beautiful weather now and I will be outside as much… Continue reading A Stroll around Fort Whyte Alive
