As 2022 Comes to an End

I went for a couple of nice walks today as the sun came out and it was a beautiful day. I’ll get to the photos from today soon, but for now I’ll post the last of my photos taken in the last few days before today. The first & second photos are of a beautiful… Continue reading As 2022 Comes to an End

Life in Chilliwack

Many of you know that I lived in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada for my entire life, until last July, when I moved to Chilliwack in British Columbia – still in Canada. Winnipeg is often called Winterpeg for good reason. It would not be winter without the -40 C and below temperatures. Add the blustery winds to… Continue reading Life in Chilliwack

Anna’s Hummingbirds

I mentioned in a previous blog that Anna’s Hummingbirds can stay here over the winter. I knew the winters were much milder in B.C. than they are in Winnipeg (often called Winterpeg), but I did not realize that even in freezing weather, these little birds do stay. Of course, freezing weather here is just under… Continue reading Anna’s Hummingbirds

Ice on the Pond

I headed over to Sardis Park & Pond this morning. It is a beautiful sunny morning with the temperature right at 0C with a slight wind to make it feel a bit cooler than that. So far, I am really loving this winter. The water looks to be a bit chilly this morning, but there… Continue reading Ice on the Pond

Visitor Outside My Window & Another Walk

I had no idea that I would be seeing a Hummingbird at the end of November – but it seems the Anna’s Hummingbird actually stays here all winter. Until this year, I have always lived in Winnipeg (aka Winterpeg). In July of this year, I moved west to Chilliwack, British Columbia and I knew winters… Continue reading Visitor Outside My Window & Another Walk

Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast 2022

The Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast has been where I stay almost every time I have gone to Riding Mountain National Park. Cindy and Anne are always friendly & welcoming and the building itself is extremely well looked after. I am often there when it is quiet because I enjoy staying there when the park is… Continue reading Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast 2022

Assiniboine Park – English Gardens & Duck Pond

I decided I needed a bit more of a walk than I had voting yesterday, so decided to head over to Assiniboine Park, to walk and take photos. First stop was the English Gardens. I waited (as I avoided the sprinklers) for the Hummingbird to return, but she didn’t. So, I left and headed over… Continue reading Assiniboine Park – English Gardens & Duck Pond

Adventures in Pet/House Sitting

From last Friday to today (Monday) I was spending time with some of my buddies. My newest buddy is Dublyn a 5 month old Golden Retriever puppy. My other buddies at this home may be familiar to you – Leo (Golden Retriever) along with Timmy and Harry (cats). Most of my photos today are these… Continue reading Adventures in Pet/House Sitting

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
