A Morning Walk Around Assiniboine Park

We are having some mild temperatures (for January) this week, so I had to head out and go for another walk this morning. Assiniboine Park is close and I haven’t walked around there for awhile – so that is where I drove. After walking through the English Gardens, I decided that maybe I should eat… Continue reading A Morning Walk Around Assiniboine Park

A Winter Visit to Beaudry Provincial Park

My first visit to Beaudry Provincial Park was early spring last year. Before then I hadn’t even known about it. I returned a couple of times during the summer, but only wrote the one post on my first visit. This morning I decided to do a winter walk there. I didn’t see or hear any… Continue reading A Winter Visit to Beaudry Provincial Park

Return to Bunn’s Creek

I haven’t been to Bunn’s Creek for over 2 months by the looks of things, so yesterday morning when I saw a break in the cold weather, I decided to head over there for a walk. I was actually amazed when I saw the temperature – it was a very mild -8C and there was… Continue reading Return to Bunn’s Creek

A Drive Through Assiniboine Park

The Assiniboine Park Zoo is currently closed for a few days so they can do some maintenance and deep cleaning of areas that they must do when the public is not around. They always accomplish a lot during these 5 days, but I probably would have walked around the zoo instead of just driving through… Continue reading A Drive Through Assiniboine Park

A Sunny Cold Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

It has been about a month and a half since I’ve been to Fort Whyte Alive. Although it was a chilly morning with a temperature of -28C and a windchill in the -30’s I decided it was time to head over there. I didn’t stay long though. I only walked the smaller side where the… Continue reading A Sunny Cold Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Hanging Out with the Boys

You met these cats a few weeks ago when I spent time with them in their home and I am back with them again – but that will end tomorrow. I have been taking a few photos (of course). For the last 2 photos, Rodney had been lying beside me when I opened the aquarium… Continue reading Hanging Out with the Boys

A Short Walk on a Foggy Morning

I had a couple of things on my mind when I headed out this morning. So far I have not found the Cardinals in the English Garden or Leo Mol Sculpture Garden at Assiniboine Park plus I really needed a new pair of shoes. First was a quick stop at Starbucks to get a Chai… Continue reading A Short Walk on a Foggy Morning

A Sunny Morning with a Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

It was a beautiful sunny morning with temperatures around -13C (and not much wind) when I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive for a walk. I signed in with my membership card and as I headed out the door, I saw a sign that said paths were very slippery and to use caution. Although it… Continue reading A Sunny Morning with a Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

A Day at The Assiniboine Park Zoo

It wasn’t actually a whole day at the Zoo – but I had my regular volunteer shift from 12:30 pm to 4:00 pm when the zoo closes, followed by a short break before we were invited back for a preview of this year’s Zoo Lights. I took a few photos during my volunteer shift and… Continue reading A Day at The Assiniboine Park Zoo

Winter is HERE (and a Short Walk)

I checked the temperature, which was about -10C, and the sun was shining, so I decided to take a walk at Fort Whyte Alive this morning. I didn’t notice the wind until I had arrived at my destination and that wind hit hard. I was already there though, so I entered and started my walk.… Continue reading Winter is HERE (and a Short Walk)
