Chilly Day at the Zoo

We were spoiled with a few warmer than usual temperatures earlier this week and the sudden drop in temperature along with a higher wind and snow sure hit hard this morning.  But, I was scheduled to be volunteering at the Assiniboine Park Zoo, and that is where I was going. I bundled up and headed… Continue reading Chilly Day at the Zoo

Walking with the Deer

After seeing the White-tailed Deer outside my apartment window all summer and fall, I was disappointed to realize that they would be hidden for most of the winter.  My walks along the Seine River did not help me locate them – until today.  🙂 While walking along the trail on the opposite side of the… Continue reading Walking with the Deer

One of the places is  Fort Whyte Alive – right in Winnipeg, which makes it quick… Continue reading Back to Fort Whyte Alive

Due to the heat, most people have their air conditioners going full blast and last night we had 4 power outages – one after the other.  Things would be coming… Continue reading A Breath of Fresh Air

Brisk Walk Along the Seine River

The moon was looking good when I went to bed last night – so I grabbed my camera to take a picture. I have to get back into the habit of early morning walks.  This was as good a time as any to get out there and walk today.  I just finished 3 weeks of… Continue reading Brisk Walk Along the Seine River
