Walking Along Sturgeon Creek

Sturgeon Creek flows south into the Assiniboine River – not too far from where I live. Much of the the creek in Winnipeg has a walking path beside it. That is where I decided to walk yesterday. I drove to the parking lot that is just south of Portage Avenue, which is close to the… Continue reading Walking Along Sturgeon Creek

My Second Walk of the Day at Assiniboine Park

On my way home from Fort Whyte Alive, I decided to drive into Assiniboine Park to continue my walking. Of course, I was looking for more photo opportunities and I found some. 🙂 I didn’t go into the zoo, but the Heavy Horse Centre is viewable from outside the zoo. The Mallard Ducks turned to… Continue reading My Second Walk of the Day at Assiniboine Park

A Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

The last time I went to Fort Whyte Alive, I was prepared for wet & muddy paths and I wore my pair of rubber boots. The boots came in very handy as I waded through water & mud in a few spots. Today, I decided that it hadn’t rained in a few days and the… Continue reading A Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Finally – Back to Riding Mountain National Park

Spring was so slow to arrive this year and there are spots where snow still exists (just days before June). I’ve been wanting to get to RMNP for ages. Last year I was there in April, but this year the roads have been under water or washed out in many places. The park had even… Continue reading Finally – Back to Riding Mountain National Park

Dogs & Cats

I spent a few days last week with a couple of Golden Retrievers (Leo & Dublyn) and a couple of cats (Harry & Timmy). I’ve stayed with them before, so they may be familiar to my regular viewers. Amazingly enough, I managed to get a few photos of these gorgeous animals. This is Harry. He… Continue reading Dogs & Cats

Spring at Oak Hammock Marsh

Yesterday, I drove north to Oak Hammock Marsh to have a walk. Last time I went there this year, I had to walk through deep snow and didn’t end up going far. It was hard work walking when each step took me to my knees (& sometimes deeper). There were still little spots of snow… Continue reading Spring at Oak Hammock Marsh

Nearing the End (I HOPE) of our Neverending Winter

Although there is still snow and ice in abundance here, there is also water – lots of water. Due to our high amount of snowfall this year, the melting snow and ice is now causing flooding in many parts of the province. Winnipeg (or Winterpeg, which it is often called) has almost made it through… Continue reading Nearing the End (I HOPE) of our Neverending Winter

Last Stop of the Day – Kildonan Park

Something that I love to do is walk. I walk because I enjoy it and also because it is a healthy way to exercise. On my way back home, I was driving right past Kildonan Park, so I thought another walk would be nice. I started at the Duck Pond/Witches Hut and headed out for… Continue reading Last Stop of the Day – Kildonan Park

Walking Around the Lakes

I continued my walk from yesterday and once I arrived back on the beach side, I could see more birds and a little closer from the far side. I wasn’t sure what the first bird was until I saw the 2nd one. The male is obviously a Hooded Merganser, so I checked and found out… Continue reading Walking Around the Lakes

The Lakes & Beaches at Birds Hill Provincial Park

Last year, I set out on this walk in February and I got myself lost. The trails were buried in snow and it was my first time walking this trail. After quite a bit of time (no idea of actual time), I ran into some people, who steered me in the right direction. This walk… Continue reading The Lakes & Beaches at Birds Hill Provincial Park
