Continuing Yesterday’s Walk

After making it back to my car, I started my drive back home. As I have mentioned before – I am completely directionaly challenged. Since this was my first time coming into this parking lot, I got to a spot where the road split in 2 different directions and I picked the wrong one. BUT,… Continue reading Continuing Yesterday’s Walk

Chem Lake Wetlands Walk

It was a beautiful morning today, so I thought a return visit to the Chem Lake Wetlands would be a good way to spend some time. I thought about taking my pair of shoes that has spikes in case it was slippery there, but instead decided that since the ice & snow are disappearing quickly,… Continue reading Chem Lake Wetlands Walk

A Beautiful Day for a Walk in the Zoo

I had a few reasons for moving from Manitoba to B.C. and the weather was one of those reasons. Yesterday it was +9C under a sunny sky while in Winnipeg, it was below zero with snow. In Winnipeg, one of my regular activities was to volunteer at the Assiniboine Park Zoo there and I was… Continue reading A Beautiful Day for a Walk in the Zoo

Nearing the End (I HOPE) of our Neverending Winter

Although there is still snow and ice in abundance here, there is also water – lots of water. Due to our high amount of snowfall this year, the melting snow and ice is now causing flooding in many parts of the province. Winnipeg (or Winterpeg, which it is often called) has almost made it through… Continue reading Nearing the End (I HOPE) of our Neverending Winter

Adventures in Pet Sitting

Most of you know that I love all critters. Unfortunately, since selling my home, I have been living in apartments that do not allow pets. The ones that do allow pets are usually more expensive to rent and my retirement income doesn’t give me enough to rent one of those. So, when my nephew contacted… Continue reading Adventures in Pet Sitting

Cedar Bog Trail

After breakfast yesterday I drove over to the Cedar Bog trail for a little longer walk than I had at Prairie Winds trail. The temperature was warmer for this walk than the earlier one. That ended this trail and tomorrow we will continue with my 3rd walk.

Kildonan Park – Last Stop of the Day

I headed back to Winnipeg after stopping at Captain Kennedy House and since I was on Main Street, it was convenient to stop at Kildonan Park for my last stop of the day. I always love to walk through & take photos of the gardens near the beginning of the park. Then I moved over… Continue reading Kildonan Park – Last Stop of the Day

My Walk Along Bunn’s Creek

It was a beautiful morning with temperatures in the low 20’s instead of the hot 30’s we have been getting the last few weeks. I thought Bunn’s Creek might be a good place to walk a bit, so that is where I headed. My plan was to walk all the way from the park along… Continue reading My Walk Along Bunn’s Creek

Assiniboine Park after a Temperature Drop

Luckily we did not get the extreme & dangerously high temperatures that the west coast of Canada had a few days ago, but we had temperatures in the high 30C range – up to 38C. Parts of British Columbia were in the high 40C range almost 50C. Currently a large number of wildfires are burning… Continue reading Assiniboine Park after a Temperature Drop

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
