Dogs/Cats/House Sitting

For the last couple of weeks, I have been staying with my buddies Sunny, Leo, Harry & Timmy in their home, while their mom is away on vacation. You have met these boys before, but I have (of course) taken a few more photos of our time together. Many of my facebook friends have seen… Continue reading Dogs/Cats/House Sitting

Looking for an Owl

After walking the dogs this morning, I headed to the English Garden beside the Zoo at Assiniboine Park. Several people have been seeing a Barred Owl there and I wanted to see and photograph it also.

Assiniboine Park Zoo in the Winter

There is a lot of good views of the critters in the Assiniboine Park Zoo in the winter. Most of the animals live in the climate that we have here and get much more active in the winter than in the summer, when they would rather find a shady place to sleep. I went there… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Zoo in the Winter

Re-visit to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights

Last year I bought an annual membership to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights here in Winnipeg. I went 3 or 4 times and I wrote a few articles here about it, but then I got busy and didn’t go back. There is so much to see that several visits are necessary to absorb all… Continue reading Re-visit to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights
