Back to the Zoo

This morning I had an appointment with a dentist – just to get to know them and know what they can or will do for me. It looks like their policies are quite similar to the dentist I have been going to for the last few years in Winnipeg. They are going to contact them… Continue reading Back to the Zoo

Kangaroos and More

Yesterday, I decided to drive back to the Greater Vancouver Zoo. I had heard from a friend in Winnipeg, that 3 Kangaroos had been sent to this zoo from the Assiniboine Park Zoo recently. I haven’t seen any Kangaroos – so, of course, I had to go back again to look for them. I took… Continue reading Kangaroos and More

Return to the Greater Vancouver Zoo

Yesterday was a beautiful day for another walk at the zoo (which is not in Vancouver) although the name kind of implies that it is in Vancouver. Oh Well. Before heading out I decided I should have the oil changed in my car, so I stopped at a nearby Mr. Lube location. Just as that… Continue reading Return to the Greater Vancouver Zoo

Checking out the Greater Vancouver Zoo

After all the time I spent volunteering as well as visiting the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg, it was only a matter of time before I decided to check out the Greater Vancouver Zoo. This zoo is not in Vancouver, even though the name suggests that it is. It is actually in Aldergrove, B.C. The… Continue reading Checking out the Greater Vancouver Zoo

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

Zoo Critters – with a Bonus

I volunteer at the Assiniboine Park Zoo about 3 times a week. While volunteering, I can only take photos with my phone – although I could sign up for a photography shift and bring my camera. I enjoy the social interactions with visitors & members, so rarely sign up for photography. I have a membership… Continue reading Zoo Critters – with a Bonus

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

A Walk in the Assiniboine Park Zoo

After leaving the Gardens at the Leaf, I headed back to my car, which I had left parked in the zoo parking lot. At that point, I thought I should head into the zoo. I haven’t wandered in the zoo with my camera for some time. Many of you know that I volunteer in the… Continue reading A Walk in the Assiniboine Park Zoo

The Goats of Aunt Sally’s Farm

There are other critters at Aunt Sally’s Farm in the Assiniboine Park Zoo, but the goats are the main attraction and the interaction with the children will be amazing to watch. It is NOT a petting zoo – but the goats will be watching and interacting with all the visitors, especially the children. There are… Continue reading The Goats of Aunt Sally’s Farm

Assiniboine Park and Zoo

Many years ago – when I was a child – one of the highlights of going to the zoo was for an exhibit called Aunt Sally’s Farm. Back then the zoo was free to visit. When I say many years ago, it really was. I just had my 70th birthday today and I haven’t been… Continue reading Assiniboine Park and Zoo
