Kangaroos and More

Yesterday, I decided to drive back to the Greater Vancouver Zoo. I had heard from a friend in Winnipeg, that 3 Kangaroos had been sent to this zoo from the Assiniboine Park Zoo recently. I haven’t seen any Kangaroos – so, of course, I had to go back again to look for them. I took… Continue reading Kangaroos and More

Walking Around Sardis Pond

I love finding new places to walk, but always enjoy returning to my favourite spots too. Yesterday, it was time to return to Sardis Pond. Last time I was at this pond, there were hundreds of Canada Geese but this time, I could count the total numbers of them on one hand. Before leaving home… Continue reading Walking Around Sardis Pond

A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail

Yesterday I had a couple of stops to make before heading out for my walk. So – when it was time to head over to the trail, I wasn’t sure how to get there from my current location. My handy-dandy map app was asked to direct me and I ended up in a new (to… Continue reading A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail

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

Prince of Whales Boat Tour

About 3 or 4 years ago, my daughter and I were booked on a Whale watching tour, but due to weather conditions and the need for me to get back home before snow fell in the mountains, we had to cancel. It had already been cancelled once by the company due to the weather. Now… Continue reading Prince of Whales Boat Tour

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

Dodger and I

As many of you know, I used to have many pets. Our home was considered to be a petting zoo between all the critters we kept. Since I lost Chester, my last dog about 6 years ago, I have been without pets of my own. My daughter was out of the house and still had… Continue reading Dodger and I

What’s the Chance that I Might Find another Great Blue Heron at the Reserve

I know the Great Blue Herons leave the reserve once the young ones are independent, but since there was one young one still hanging out there when I went a couple of weeks ago, maybe I’ll find another one. I still have several trails through there to explore anyway. I did find a bird that… Continue reading What’s the Chance that I Might Find another Great Blue Heron at the Reserve

Back for a Walk at Sardis Park/Pond

I am getting close to having my apartment somewhat organized. The problem is that the stuff that has not found a spot yet, doesn’t have much in the way of choices. So, there is one corner of the livingroom that is holding more items that it should. But – this morning I needed a walk,… Continue reading Back for a Walk at Sardis Park/Pond

Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve & More

I decided it was time for me to check out the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve a couple of days ago. I found about about this reserve after I had seen the beautiful Heron in the Sardis Pond a few days earlier. My first stop though was Sardis Park & Pond, where I managed a… Continue reading Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve & More
