A Walk in Bird’s Hill Park

Another day with reasonable temperatures, so I decided to drive to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park to go for a walk. Usually, I go in the morning, but I had a couple of errands to do – and then headed out in the afternoon. I decided to stop at Prairie Winds trail for my walk today,… Continue reading A Walk in Bird’s Hill Park

Fort Whyte Alive with an Ooops

Fort Whyte Alive has re-opened. The outside is open, but we can’t go inside the building where the regular entrance is. The entrance has been moved to a side gate right at the start of the trails. I was quickly signed in and was on my way. Under a dull and cloudy sky, I took… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive with an Ooops

A Stroll around St. Vital Park

The weather has been great for going on walks lately and I am enjoying the fresh air and exercise. This morning I decided I was going to walk around St. Vital Park. I found some White-tailed Deer not far from the park, but I can’t take photos while driving, so I hoped to see them… Continue reading A Stroll around St. Vital Park

Fort Whyte Alive this Morning

Due to Covid, we are back in a lockdown here again, with many businesses closed or with reduced hours and/or customers. I know the Assiniboine Park Zoo is closed, but was delighted to find out that Fort Whyte Alive is open. The hours are the same, but they were in the process of setting up… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive this Morning

A Beautiful Morning in Birds Hill Provincial Park – part 3

Time to move onto my last trail of the morning. This is Cedar Bog, self-guiding trail. I have walked this trail before. The first time I didn’t look at the map at the start and when I came to a part where the trail divided, I turned around and went back. The second time (after… Continue reading A Beautiful Morning in Birds Hill Provincial Park – part 3

An Afternoon Walk in the Park

Yesterday was Mother’s Day – so a belated Mother’s Day to all the mothers. Hope you had a good day. Social distancing makes it hard to get the hugs, but hopefully everyone got a phone call. My daughter called me and we had a lovely chat just before I headed out for my walk. We… Continue reading An Afternoon Walk in the Park

To Birds Hill Provincial Park for a Stroll

It felt like spring here in Winnipeg and with a temperature forecast to be -1C, it was time to find a spot in nature. The Provincial parks offer free entrance in February, and it has been awhile since I’ve been there, so I put a few sunflower seeds in my pocket and headed there. I… Continue reading To Birds Hill Provincial Park for a Stroll

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

Day 12 – Jasper to Banff

Another beautiful morning and there was no frost on my car windows.  🙂  I took a picture of the mountains from my room in the dark before heading over for breakfast.  Mountains are beautiful even in the dark. For breakfast this morning I had banana bread french toast and it was delicious.  I didn’t stop… Continue reading Day 12 – Jasper to Banff
