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

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

A Cloudy morning at Vedder River Trail

A cloudy day is not the best day for photos, but it is a great day to walk – especially when the temperatures are in the low 20’s compared to the 30’s of a few days ago. Of course, I took some photos anyway. I had a surprise when I saw a couple of critters… Continue reading A Cloudy morning at Vedder River Trail

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

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

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

My Daughter Came to Visit

Several years ago, my daughter Angela packed her bags and headed west. She hated Winnipeg (often called Winterpeg – for good reasons). It is not unusual for temperatures during the winter to get to a low of -40 (which is the same temperature in both C & F. Combined with a nasty wind much of… Continue reading My Daughter Came to Visit

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

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
