Winnipeg to Vancouver – Day 7, Part 2

We still had the afternoon left after finishing the Capilano Swinging Bridge walk, and Angie mentioned that there is an indoor conservatory combined with an aviary that she though we should take a look at. Birds and plants are high on my list of favourite things – so of course I agreed to this suggestion… Continue reading Winnipeg to Vancouver – Day 7, Part 2

Winnipeg to Vancouver – Day 7, part 1

Unfortunately, our boat ride out to look for whales & other wildlife was cancelled again today and I have no more days left to go on it.

Winnipeg to Vancouver – day 1, part 1

As if it isn’t far enough to go from Winnipeg to Vancouver, I decided to take a detour on day 1 and go to Riding Mountain National Park.

First stop was the Wishing Well, and the sprinklers had… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 1, part 4

Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – Day 1, Part 2

The drive to Riding Mountain National Park takes approximately 3 hours, but the clock stops as soon as I pass the East Gate on the way in on #19. The Black Bear was quite a distance away when I saw him and I stopped the car immediately while he stood beside the road.  As soon… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – Day 1, Part 2

Back to the English Garden with my Camera

I will warn you in advance that the pictures are not great and I obviously need more practice on moving birds, but I did diversify a bit, so the ones other than birds aren’t too hard to look at.
