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

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

Fairfield Island

My friend Karen – who used to live in Chilliwack gave me directions to Fairfield Island for a place to walk. So, today the sun was shining and I decided it would be a good day to check it out. To get there I had to drive on a road over the Hope River Bridge… Continue reading Fairfield Island

Return to the Greater Vancouver Zoo

Yesterday was a beautiful day for another walk at the zoo (which is not in Vancouver) although the name kind of implies that it is in Vancouver. Oh Well. Before heading out I decided I should have the oil changed in my car, so I stopped at a nearby Mr. Lube location. Just as that… Continue reading Return to the Greater Vancouver Zoo

Checking out the Greater Vancouver Zoo

After all the time I spent volunteering as well as visiting the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg, it was only a matter of time before I decided to check out the Greater Vancouver Zoo. This zoo is not in Vancouver, even though the name suggests that it is. It is actually in Aldergrove, B.C. The… Continue reading Checking out the Greater Vancouver Zoo

A Springtime Stroll at Fort Whyte Alive

Right after Teddy, Macy and I had our morning walk, I decided to drive over to Fort Whyte Alive to have another walk. There is still a lot of snow and ice covering much of the trails and the lakes, but walking is ok. Every trail did have some gravel or sand showing and it… Continue reading A Springtime Stroll at Fort Whyte Alive

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
