A Stroll in Assiniboine Park

The temperature wasn’t much over 0C this morning, but the sun was shining and I grabbed my camera and headed out. Now that I am back in my apartment, the temperature is at 13C – so not bad, and the sun helps too. As I strolled along an asphalt path in the woods along the… Continue reading A Stroll in Assiniboine Park

A Chilly Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

It was 2C this morning when I headed over to Fort White Alive after my breakfast at the Red Top Restaurant. It started off cloudy, but after awhile, I saw the sun trying to get out from behind the clouds and soon afterwards, the clouds pretty much disappeared. 🙂 After the sun made an appearance,… Continue reading A Chilly Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

Walking Through the English Gardens and Leo Mol Sculpture Garden

It was a cool morning, but the sun was shining and I went for a walk through the English Gardens. I knew there would be some birds around, but didn’t think any of the flowers would have survived the couple of frosty mornings we’ve had in the last week or so. The first 2 photos… Continue reading Walking Through the English Gardens and Leo Mol Sculpture Garden

A Fall Evening at Fort Whyte Alive

I thought it would be interesting to take morning photos at Fort Whyte Alive on the same day that I had booked to visit in the evening for the Sunset Goose Flights. I have never been to Fort Whyte Alive in the evening before. They normally close at 6:00 pm. I arrived just before 6:30… Continue reading A Fall Evening at Fort Whyte Alive

A Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

As I mentioned in my last post, I was at Fort Whyte Alive in the morning the other day and took several more photos than what I showed. Here they are! It was a cloudy morning, but the critters and the fall colours didn’t fail me. I was already booked to return in the evening… Continue reading A Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

More on my Vehicle

It has now been more than a week since my aborted trip to Riding Mountain National Park. My vehicle was in the shop from Thursday, when I returned home until Tuesday. The problem was the timing chain along with some damage done by the timing chain. The dealership (Murray Chev Olds) where I originally purchased… Continue reading More on my Vehicle

The English Garden in Assiniboine Park

This morning I decided to head over to the English Garden in Assiniboine Park to see if I could find any Hummingbirds or Indigo Buntings. I did see one hummingbird, but it didn’t stay long enough for a photo – and I didn’t see an Indigo Bunting, but think I heard one. So – I… Continue reading The English Garden in Assiniboine Park

A Walk Around Kildonan Park

On my drive out to Lockport the other day, I saw a hot air balloon floating in the sky. I remembered the day I finally had a ride in that balloon. I say finally – because it took several bookings before the weather was just right, but it was worth the wait. After that thought,… Continue reading A Walk Around Kildonan Park

What – Another Move???

As many of you know, I lived in my little old house for 33 years. I sold it when I retired, since I wouldn’t be able to afford the upkeep on it with just my pensions. It was a very old house (built in 1900). I am currently in my 3rd apartment in the 4… Continue reading What – Another Move???

A Hot Summer Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

I had planned on heading out to either the Whiteshell Provincial Park or Grand Beach Provincial Park today, to spend some time with my feet in a lake. Unfortunately, rain was in the forecast, so I decided to hang out in Winnipeg and headed to Fort Whyte Alive. All signs of rain left and it… Continue reading A Hot Summer Morning at Fort Whyte Alive
