A Morning Visit to Oak Hammock Marsh

I haven’t been to Oak Hammock Marsh for awhile, so today was the day for a return trip. I left early and was there before any other cars were in the parking lot. As a result I did not see anyone at all, but I did find some birds and a Muskrat. I was glad… Continue reading A Morning Visit to Oak Hammock Marsh

A Few Days

I’ll start with a follow-up of Bowser’s 3rd try at Dog Dash. He did much better than the times before. He was still very stressed about the whole thing, but he was walking on the treadmill for most of the time. I could have booked another visit, but decided to just see how he did… Continue reading A Few Days

Dog Dash

I get to stay with Toby, Bowser and Mocha for a few days. These guys can keep me busy! Because Bowser is young and has endless energy, their family has booked a couple of visits with Dog Dash. I had never heard of this company, but now found out that they just started up here… Continue reading Dog Dash

Assiniboine Park after a Temperature Drop

Luckily we did not get the extreme & dangerously high temperatures that the west coast of Canada had a few days ago, but we had temperatures in the high 30C range – up to 38C. Parts of British Columbia were in the high 40C range almost 50C. Currently a large number of wildfires are burning… Continue reading Assiniboine Park after a Temperature Drop

Walking Around Fort Whyte Alive with my Camera

It felt like ages since I’ve been to Fort Whyte Alive, but really, it has only been a couple of weeks. Walks are never the same though. I get to watch different critters/birds/reptiles/insects each time. It was a beautiful day for a walk. The heat wave which has been around for a few days was… Continue reading Walking Around Fort Whyte Alive with my Camera

On My Balcony

First thing this morning, I made a cup of coffee and then sat out on my balcony to drink it. Of course, I had my camera with me, just in case any critters showed themselves. The one Petunia planter could use another plant or 2, so I decided to head over to the Superstore gardening… Continue reading On My Balcony

A Beautiful Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

I was thinking it has been awhile since I’ve been to Fort Whyte Alive and looking back on my posts, I see it has been about 5 weeks. That IS a long time! But, it was a beautiful morning so that is where I went this morning.

A Day in the Life

Today I got to spend a few hours with my little buddy – Coconut! His family was going to be away for much of the day and as he is aging, he has developed problems with his eyes. He needs regular drops in each eye a few times a day. Of course, I was willing… Continue reading A Day in the Life

A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 5

After my little mid-day break, I headed back out to see what I could find. Instead of going back into the park, I went south a bit after getting some information on lakes with a nice variety of birds along a road nearby. My first photo wasn’t a bird though. As I rounded a corner,… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 5

A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 4

I had a good (but short) sleep last night and was up before dawn the next morning. I haven’t been to Grayling Lake for a sunrise photo in quite awhile, so that is where I decided to go. I then headed further north in the hopes of finding Moose around Moon Lake. First was a… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 4
