Riding Mountain National Park – day 3, part 2

I stopped at the Boreal Trail next. I wasn’t planning on walking it due to the very high number of nasty mosquitoes around and I did not have any repellent with me. As it was, every time I rolled my window down to get critter photos, the car filled up with mosquitoes. So – I… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park – day 3, part 2

Riding Mountain National Park – June 9, continued

After checking into my beautiful deluxe room at Elkhorn Resort, I headed downstairs and outside to visit the horses at the stables. I talked to one of the employees, asking about the extra horses they had compared to other visits. She told me that they often board horses over the winter but due to COVID-19,… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park – June 9, continued

Parkade Cleaning Day

The apartment building where I leave has underground parking, so once a year we are ordered to remove our vehicles for the day for cleaning. There is very little street parking in the area and what little there is has a maximum time of 2 hours. So, I decided to head north and visit Grand… Continue reading Parkade Cleaning Day

Sour Dough Bread Experience

Since my last post, I have made my first 2 loaves of bread from my sour dough starter. The first loaf did not rise much at all and turned out to be very a very heavy bread. I did eat a couple of slices, but have to admit that it wasn’t great. Most of the… Continue reading Sour Dough Bread Experience

Keeping Safe

Covid-19 is not the first pandemic that has threatened this world – but it is the current one. There was no internet for the other big ones though, and this has been a method of spreading the information (both true and untrue information) quickly for this pandemic. So – how are you doing? I have… Continue reading Keeping Safe

Re-visit to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights

Last year I bought an annual membership to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights here in Winnipeg. I went 3 or 4 times and I wrote a few articles here about it, but then I got busy and didn’t go back. There is so much to see that several visits are necessary to absorb all… Continue reading Re-visit to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights

Fort Whyte Alive – Oct 20/19

I spent the morning wandering around at Fort Whyte Alive and took a few photos. As usual, you can click on one and scroll through them at a larger size to see them better. Dedicated to my brother-in-law, John Panting (Oct 20/41 – May 9/19) John and my sister Sharon were married for 51 years… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive – Oct 20/19

Winter Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – Part 2

This morning, I was up and heading back to the park and my favourite sunrise spot at Grayling Lake.  It was very cloudy, so I was pretty sure the sunrise would be a flop, but there was still time for the clouds to break apart – and I wasn’t going to waste the chance. With… Continue reading Winter Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – Part 2

A Trip to Riding Mountain National Park in the Winter

One day while reading the posts on the RMNP Facebook group, I noticed someone posting that she had a room in her house for rent.  Her home is located just outside the park and she has horses (both hers and horses that are being boarded).  I had recently received my lease renewal and was facing… Continue reading A Trip to Riding Mountain National Park in the Winter

Random Thoughts

Welcome to December.  It is hard to believe that we have reached the last month of another year and that next month will be 2018.  Time flies when you’re having fun. Every Saturday, I have breakfast at the Red Top Restaurant, which is very close to where my old house was.  It used to be… Continue reading Random Thoughts
