What’s the Chance that I Might Find another Great Blue Heron at the Reserve

I know the Great Blue Herons leave the reserve once the young ones are independent, but since there was one young one still hanging out there when I went a couple of weeks ago, maybe I’ll find another one. I still have several trails through there to explore anyway. I did find a bird that… Continue reading What’s the Chance that I Might Find another Great Blue Heron at the Reserve

Checking in on the Duckling at Sardis Pond

I have become a regular walker at Sardis Park/Pond. The little duckling and the turtle that I saw with it most of the time keep me coming back to check on them. The sheer numbers of Canada Geese are overwhelming this park now though. There were also several American Black Ducks – but those numbers… Continue reading Checking in on the Duckling at Sardis Pond

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

Back for a Walk at Sardis Park/Pond

I am getting close to having my apartment somewhat organized. The problem is that the stuff that has not found a spot yet, doesn’t have much in the way of choices. So, there is one corner of the livingroom that is holding more items that it should. But – this morning I needed a walk,… Continue reading Back for a Walk at Sardis Park/Pond

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

Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve & More

I decided it was time for me to check out the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve a couple of days ago. I found about about this reserve after I had seen the beautiful Heron in the Sardis Pond a few days earlier. My first stop though was Sardis Park & Pond, where I managed a… Continue reading Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve & More

More About the Move & Another Walk or Two

One thing about a long distance move is that it takes much longer for your furniture to reach the destination than it takes to actually get there yourself. I knew this, but I had a carload of my own items and did not want to take my time so I divided my drives into 4… Continue reading More About the Move & Another Walk or Two

Sardis Park/Pond

On a local Chilliwack Facebook page, I found out about a beautiful little Park with a huge pond to visit. It is Sardis Park and the pond is Sardis Pond. There are walking trails around the park and around the pond, so I started off with 2 loops of the pond and the next day… Continue reading Sardis Park/Pond

Bridal Veil Falls

A few years ago, my daughter had brought me to the Bridal Veil Falls when I was visiting with her. I was probably in a bit better shape, because I don’t remember how hard the steep walk up from the parking lot was. Although maybe I just remember the good part of the walk (downhill)… Continue reading Bridal Veil Falls
