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

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

Next Stop – Birds Hill Provincial Park

From Lockport, it was a short drive to #59 highway and then I headed south to Birds Hill Provincial Park and then turned off and headed into the park. I was getting hungry by then and although I planned on walking before eating, I decided to stop and eat first. I figured my boots would… Continue reading Next Stop – Birds Hill Provincial Park

Starting the Day off with a Drive to Lockport

This has been a very bad spring with two blizzard/snow storms. The flooding from those storms mean that driving anywhere was taking a chance of getting very wet and/or breaking an axle on your vehicle by hitting giant potholes (many of which were hidden in large water puddles. So – I stayed home. Another storm… Continue reading Starting the Day off with a Drive to Lockport

A Couple of Days

Things have been a little crazy around here lately, but I figured it was time to post about some of the good stuff (which – of course – involves critters) as well as Assiniboine Park in the fresh snow. When I last wrote, I was staying with the adorable dogs – Teddy & Macy, and… Continue reading A Couple of Days
