Life Goes On

Since my fall in December, I haven’t gone out much at all. I did take a return trip to Fort Whyte Alive, but otherwise, it has been only grocery shopping at the store next door to my apartment or ordering online for delivery. My FitBit bugs me to keep moving – so I walk around… Continue reading Life Goes On

Fort Whyte Alive with an Ooops

Fort Whyte Alive has re-opened. The outside is open, but we can’t go inside the building where the regular entrance is. The entrance has been moved to a side gate right at the start of the trails. I was quickly signed in and was on my way. Under a dull and cloudy sky, I took… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive with an Ooops

Short Walk after Temperature Drop

Yesterday we had a mild December temperature of -4C and this morning it was -25C when I went out to get some groceries. I hadn’t checked the temperature before leaving my apartment, so just had my fleece on as my jacket. I had to scrape ice and snow off the car – but got my… Continue reading Short Walk after Temperature Drop

A Slippery Walk

I knew it was going to be slippery when I opened the door to go outside and saw frozen drops of rain on the stair railings. I went anyway, but didn’t end up walking enough to even look at what my FitBit said today. First photos are the intricate designs on my car’s windshield (windscreen)… Continue reading A Slippery Walk

Revisiting Assiniboine Forest

The original plan for my next visit to Assiniboine Forest was to go much earlier in the morning – but that didn’t happen. A few days ago I ordered a Poinsettia from Shermerdine and it was ready this morning – so I went there first. I was amazed at how beautiful this was since I… Continue reading Revisiting Assiniboine Forest

A Different trail in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

I have almost turned into this trail other times thinking it was the Prairie Winds trail and this time I decided I would check it out. This is the Pine Ridge Trail. It was a very short walk to the Kudlowich homestead. It is the only homestead left on the trail, but it looks like… Continue reading A Different trail in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

Bunn’s Creek and Lockport

This morning I had decided to go out to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park. Then I thought I might as well drive through the city instead of taking the perimeter and I could stop at Bunn’s Creek. I did that, but didn’t stay long at Bunn’s Creek. I checked out the areas where I was told… Continue reading Bunn’s Creek and Lockport

A Stroll around St. Vital Park

The weather has been great for going on walks lately and I am enjoying the fresh air and exercise. This morning I decided I was going to walk around St. Vital Park. I found some White-tailed Deer not far from the park, but I can’t take photos while driving, so I hoped to see them… Continue reading A Stroll around St. Vital Park

Walking Around Assiniboine Park

I am so sad that the Assiniboine Park Zoo is still closed, but happy that the rest of the park is open and the trails are kept in good condition. I parked at the East Gate and headed into the park this morning. It is amazing to have temperatures so close to 0C in December… Continue reading Walking Around Assiniboine Park

Back to Bunn’s Creek

I am still trying to find the Cardinals at Bunn’s Creek and they are just never around on the days/times when I go. I still had a nice walk, talked to a few people and pet a few dogs – so the walk wasn’t a waste of time or energy. One very helpful lady who… Continue reading Back to Bunn’s Creek
