Just a Few Canada Geese

Canada Geese (& a few Snow Geese and ducks) have begun to gather where they can discuss their summer with friends & relatives before heading south for the winter. I was told by one of the regular walkers here that the numbers will increase to thousands (instead of just a few hundred) before they move… Continue reading Just a Few Canada Geese

A Walk in Nature

Of course, where would I walk other than somewhere in nature. This walk was in the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve. I covered a couple of trails that I hadn’t been on before, but I’m still not comfortable enough to veer off a path in case I get lost. On the way home I bought… Continue reading A Walk in Nature

Beautiful Day for a Walk

It was such a beautiful morning that I decided to head over to the Vedder River trail to walk. I usually avoid weekend walking since the trails can be busy, but thought I would go anyway. The fisher men & women were sure out in full force. As usual, I talked to a few people… Continue reading Beautiful Day for a Walk

Checking out the Greater Vancouver Zoo

After all the time I spent volunteering as well as visiting the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg, it was only a matter of time before I decided to check out the Greater Vancouver Zoo. This zoo is not in Vancouver, even though the name suggests that it is. It is actually in Aldergrove, B.C. The… Continue reading Checking out the Greater Vancouver Zoo

Return to the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve

The first 2 times I went to the Heron Nature Reserve, I saw one Great Blue Heron – and both times it was at the same spot (give or take a couple of meters). So, I headed there yesterday morning to see if I could find it again. It was drizzling a bit, but but… Continue reading Return to the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve

Dodger and I

As many of you know, I used to have many pets. Our home was considered to be a petting zoo between all the critters we kept. Since I lost Chester, my last dog about 6 years ago, I have been without pets of my own. My daughter was out of the house and still had… Continue reading Dodger and I

Back for a Walk at Sardis Park/Pond

I am getting close to having my apartment somewhat organized. The problem is that the stuff that has not found a spot yet, doesn’t have much in the way of choices. So, there is one corner of the livingroom that is holding more items that it should. But – this morning I needed a walk,… Continue reading Back for a Walk at Sardis Park/Pond

One Month

Today is exactly one month from the day I moved out of Winnipeg and out of Manitoba. I was heading west – all the way to the west coast, where I had rented an apartment in Chilliwack B.C. After owning my own home in Winnipeg for 33 years, I moved about every 2nd year to… Continue reading One Month

Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve & More

I decided it was time for me to check out the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve a couple of days ago. I found about about this reserve after I had seen the beautiful Heron in the Sardis Pond a few days earlier. My first stop though was Sardis Park & Pond, where I managed a… Continue reading Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve & More

More About the Move & Another Walk or Two

One thing about a long distance move is that it takes much longer for your furniture to reach the destination than it takes to actually get there yourself. I knew this, but I had a carload of my own items and did not want to take my time so I divided my drives into 4… Continue reading More About the Move & Another Walk or Two
