Winnipeg to Vancouver – Heading Home, day 3 & 4

It didn’t take long to get to Edmonton and since it was still morning, I thought I should find the Zoo and explore it.

Winnipeg to Vancouver – Day 5

My daughter Angie has plans made for the days I will be here and everything sounds so great. Today’s excursion was out to Othello-Quintette Tunnels, which is in a Provincial Park.

This is the perfect solution, allowing me to spend time with critters without the expense… Continue reading Adventures in Dog/Cat/House Sitting – part 1

Back at the Zoo

I spend quite a bit of time at the Assiniboine Park Zoo – both as a volunteer and sometimes just as a member on my own time. A couple of days ago, I had to be there for a meeting in the afternoon, so I decided to go a bit earlier with my camera. Inside Assiniboine… Continue reading Back at the Zoo
