A Snowy Walk

It snowed here a couple of days ago and the snow is still here! It has been several years since we’ve had snow in October, but when we have, it is usually gone the next day. This time, it just might stay until spring. 😦 I decided that I could survive a walk in the… Continue reading A Snowy Walk

A Stroll in Assiniboine Park

The temperature wasn’t much over 0C this morning, but the sun was shining and I grabbed my camera and headed out. Now that I am back in my apartment, the temperature is at 13C – so not bad, and the sun helps too. As I strolled along an asphalt path in the woods along the… Continue reading A Stroll in Assiniboine Park

A Chilly Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

It was 2C this morning when I headed over to Fort White Alive after my breakfast at the Red Top Restaurant. It started off cloudy, but after awhile, I saw the sun trying to get out from behind the clouds and soon afterwards, the clouds pretty much disappeared. 🙂 After the sun made an appearance,… Continue reading A Chilly Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

A Fall Evening at Fort Whyte Alive

I thought it would be interesting to take morning photos at Fort Whyte Alive on the same day that I had booked to visit in the evening for the Sunset Goose Flights. I have never been to Fort Whyte Alive in the evening before. They normally close at 6:00 pm. I arrived just before 6:30… Continue reading A Fall Evening at Fort Whyte Alive

A Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

As I mentioned in my last post, I was at Fort Whyte Alive in the morning the other day and took several more photos than what I showed. Here they are! It was a cloudy morning, but the critters and the fall colours didn’t fail me. I was already booked to return in the evening… Continue reading A Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

More on my Vehicle

It has now been more than a week since my aborted trip to Riding Mountain National Park. My vehicle was in the shop from Thursday, when I returned home until Tuesday. The problem was the timing chain along with some damage done by the timing chain. The dealership (Murray Chev Olds) where I originally purchased… Continue reading More on my Vehicle

A Quicker Trip to Riding Mountain than Planned – part 2

Today I’ll fill in some of the blanks from yesterday’s post – just for something different. 🙂 After I found out that the car shouldn’t be driven, I called Cindy at the Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast to cancel my 2 nights. Soon after that I found out that the car wouldn’t be towed until the… Continue reading A Quicker Trip to Riding Mountain than Planned – part 2

Sometimes Life Gets in the Way

I let you know last blog that I was packing and getting ready for one more move. It has been a few years since I have felt at home after selling my house and making the first move. This is the fourth move for me in about as many years – but this new apartment… Continue reading Sometimes Life Gets in the Way

A Hot Summer Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

I had planned on heading out to either the Whiteshell Provincial Park or Grand Beach Provincial Park today, to spend some time with my feet in a lake. Unfortunately, rain was in the forecast, so I decided to hang out in Winnipeg and headed to Fort Whyte Alive. All signs of rain left and it… Continue reading A Hot Summer Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

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
