A Little Walk on a Cloudy Morning

Yesterday I received a letter from BCAA telling me that my payment had not gone through on my credit card on file and my membership would be cancelled if not rectified. About a week earlier, I had phoned them to renew this membership and was told that it had already been renewed. So, since I… Continue reading A Little Walk on a Cloudy Morning

Sunny Morning at Chem Lake Wetlands

We have had a few cloudy and/or rainy days lately, and when I saw the forecast was for sunshine I decided to head out to Chem Lake Wetlands for my walk. It was so beautiful in the sun! A Couple of views from the still frozen lake. The sun hadn’t made it past the mountains… Continue reading Sunny Morning at Chem Lake Wetlands

Back to Fairfield Island

Although rain was in the forecast, I decided that I needed a good walk, so I headed back to Fairfield Island with my camera. The sky was partly cloudy, but the sun did make its way out to brighten things up. He quickly brought his wing in and looked very majestic instantly.

I am Not used to having Spring in January

Being a lifelong Manitoba resident (until I moved west last summer), I am used to extreme cold with spring finally showing up around the end of March (sometimes) or April (more often). I am loving the British Columbia weather. This may be a one-time thing and next winter may last longer, but I am taking… Continue reading I am Not used to having Spring in January

The Vedder River Trail for the Rest of my Walk

I haven’t been back to the start of the Vedder River Trail since I found out about the other sections, but today I went back to the start for today’s walk. I went to the bridge that crosses the river & took photos looking both directions from under it. Between the roads twisting & turning… Continue reading The Vedder River Trail for the Rest of my Walk

A Happy New Year Walk

January 1st wasn’t great for walking, so I took a long walk on January 2nd. My first stop was the Sardis Park/Pond in Chilliwack. This is one of my favourite places to walk – but I have to admit that all the walking spots I’ve found so far are all my favourites – LOL. When… Continue reading A Happy New Year Walk

It Felt Good to Get Out and Really Walk

For the first time in several days, the rain stopped and the sun came out. I often walk in any weather, but several days of pouring rain along with some cold weather kept me inside. I still walked though. My apartment building is a full block long and I walk up & down the stairs… Continue reading It Felt Good to Get Out and Really Walk

As 2022 Comes to an End

I went for a couple of nice walks today as the sun came out and it was a beautiful day. I’ll get to the photos from today soon, but for now I’ll post the last of my photos taken in the last few days before today. The first & second photos are of a beautiful… Continue reading As 2022 Comes to an End

Life in Chilliwack

Many of you know that I lived in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada for my entire life, until last July, when I moved to Chilliwack in British Columbia – still in Canada. Winnipeg is often called Winterpeg for good reason. It would not be winter without the -40 C and below temperatures. Add the blustery winds to… Continue reading Life in Chilliwack

Anna’s Hummingbirds

I mentioned in a previous blog that Anna’s Hummingbirds can stay here over the winter. I knew the winters were much milder in B.C. than they are in Winnipeg (often called Winterpeg), but I did not realize that even in freezing weather, these little birds do stay. Of course, freezing weather here is just under… Continue reading Anna’s Hummingbirds
