A Stroll Around Assiniboine Park

After a big Saturday morning breakfast, I decided to head over to Assiniboine Park to see what I could see. I started out at the English Gardens to check on the hole in the tree that had been made by the Pileated Woodpecker earlier in the spring. Last time I checked on it, I couldn’t… Continue reading A Stroll Around Assiniboine Park

Almost Spring at Bunn’s Creek

March is the month that can go either way around here. We have had blizzards some years and we have had an early spring other years. This year is looking more like it will be an early spring. It can still go the other way though, so I’ll just enjoy what we have right now.… Continue reading Almost Spring at Bunn’s Creek

A Beautiful Morning in Birds Hill Provincial Park – part 3

Time to move onto my last trail of the morning. This is Cedar Bog, self-guiding trail. I have walked this trail before.

The second time (after… Continue reading A Beautiful Morning in Birds Hill Provincial Park – part 3

It has been a few years since I have had any pets and even more years since I’ve had an aquarium. For a few years I had several aquariums going at a time with different fish or critters in them.

It is Coconut Time

Anyone who has been reading my blog for awhile should be familiar with Coconut. He is a little Bichon Frise that I sometimes stay with while his family is out of town. Warning – very cute photos ahead. 🙂 I’ve never been known to ignore other photography possibilities, so I quickly moved on to a… Continue reading It is Coconut Time

Dogs/Cats/House Sitting

For the last couple of weeks, I have been staying with my buddies Sunny, Leo, Harry & Timmy in their home, while their mom is away on vacation. You have met these boys before, but I have (of course) taken a few more photos of our time together. Many of my facebook friends have seen… Continue reading Dogs/Cats/House Sitting

Winnipeg to Vancouver – Day 5

My daughter Angie has plans made for the days I will be here and everything sounds so great. Today’s excursion was out to Othello-Quintette Tunnels, which is in a Provincial Park. Here, the Coquihalla River has dug a deep canyon (Coquihalla Canyon) with its rushing waters. The tunnels go alongside the river and cross over… Continue reading Winnipeg to Vancouver – Day 5
