Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Part 4, Relax

There is just so much information in this museum, that it is impossible to take it all in at once.  Because of this, there are a couple of places to just relax.  Of course, there are plenty of spots to sit during your visit, but one place is here just to relax and reflect.  I… Continue reading Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Part 4, Relax

A Walk with the Deer

I am back house/dog sitting with my big buddy Toby. It was time to go for a morning walk and we were greeted by some White-tailed Deer just outside the yard. They gracefully trotted away and we continued on to the river and walked along the edge.   A pair of Canada Geese were on the… Continue reading A Walk with the Deer

Paddlers or Rowers

Not far from home is the Manitoba Rowing Club.  I often see rowers on the river and lately, I often see (what I know now) are paddlers.  I always assumed they were pretty much the same, since they were in a boat and had an oar (or paddle). Some time ago I took a picture… Continue reading Paddlers or Rowers
