Along River Road

It is always a beautiful drive along River Road and as the name suggests, it does follow the Red River all the way. In contrast, we also have a River Road in Winnipeg, where you never actually see the river although it is quite close to the Assiniboine River. The only stop I made was… Continue reading Along River Road

A Morning at Lockport

I decided to head north to Lockport to see if any Pelicans were still hanging out there. It was a beautiful morning and I enjoyed the drive. When I reached Lockport, I headed for the little park where I can usually get some decent photos, but the bridge construction has pretty much blocked off the… Continue reading A Morning at Lockport

Hanging Around at Lockport

I left Bird’s Hill Provincial Park and drove to Lockport to take a look around. I found Pelicans and Cormorants. I found out that there was construction on the Lockport Bridge and that the speed limit on the bridge was 30 km, but before going over the bridge, I went into the park on the… Continue reading Hanging Around at Lockport

Looking for Pelicans

I don’t usually go out to walk trails on Saturday, since there are often too many people around to enjoy the walk and very difficult to socially distance – but this morning I thought I would head out to Lockport to see if any Pelicans would like to pose for photos. There were a few… Continue reading Looking for Pelicans

Wandering Around

This morning I decided to take a return drive to Lockport to see how the river looked there, as well as seeing what birds and/or critters I could find. Of course, I always like watching the water flowing through the locks as well. I headed back to the car and started driving – ending up… Continue reading Wandering Around

Walking around at Lockport

There was absolutely nothing written in my calendar for today – so I decided to head out to Lockport to look for birds and see how the ice on the river was there. There was actually more ice than I thought there would be – closer to the locks as well. Then I noticed a… Continue reading Walking around at Lockport

Bunn’s Creek and Lockport

This morning I had decided to go out to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park. Then I thought I might as well drive through the city instead of taking the perimeter and I could stop at Bunn’s Creek. I did that, but didn’t stay long at Bunn’s Creek. I checked out the areas where I was told… Continue reading Bunn’s Creek and Lockport

Taking a Break from Packing

I have quite a bit of my packing done and will be living with boxes for awhile. There isn’t much more I can do now since I am still living here for 3 1/2 weeks. I was going to head for Oak Hammock Marsh, but changed my mind while driving and went to Lockport to… Continue reading Taking a Break from Packing

Pelicans at Lockport

Pelicans are so much fun to watch. Sometimes they are a bit of a challenge to photograph, but I just keep snapping and usually end up with some fairly good photos. One thing I noticed today is the way they fish together. Each bird in the group dives at the same time and comes back… Continue reading Pelicans at Lockport

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
