A Drive Through Assiniboine Park

The Assiniboine Park Zoo is currently closed for a few days so they can do some maintenance and deep cleaning of areas that they must do when the public is not around. They always accomplish a lot during these 5 days, but I probably would have walked around the zoo instead of just driving through… Continue reading A Drive Through Assiniboine Park

A Day at The Assiniboine Park Zoo

It wasn’t actually a whole day at the Zoo – but I had my regular volunteer shift from 12:30 pm to 4:00 pm when the zoo closes, followed by a short break before we were invited back for a preview of this year’s Zoo Lights. I took a few photos during my volunteer shift and… Continue reading A Day at The Assiniboine Park Zoo

Spending Some Time with Cats

I’d like to introduce you to 3 cats who were in need of someone to spend time with them while their owners were away this week. Of course, I arrived with my camera and managed a few photos. Here are Spencer, Dave and Rodney! Spencer spends almost all of his day (& night) in the… Continue reading Spending Some Time with Cats

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

Wandering Around at the Assiniboine Park Zoo

The Zoo and the English Gardens (both in Assiniboine Park) are almost right beside each other, so after leaving the Gardens, I headed over to the zoo yesterday. The cooler temperatures of autumn mean that many (but not all) of the critters are more active than in the summer. I finally managed a decent shot… Continue reading Wandering Around at the Assiniboine Park Zoo

Assiniboine Park – part 2

After leaving the Gardens in Assiniboine Park, I headed over to visit the zoo. Some of the critters were very cooperative in providing a few photos for me to show you. Now, it was time to get out of the sun & heat, and to head for home.

Keeping Safe

Covid-19 is not the first pandemic that has threatened this world – but it is the current one. There was no internet for the other big ones though, and this has been a method of spreading the information (both true and untrue information) quickly for this pandemic. So – how are you doing? I have… Continue reading Keeping Safe

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. I couldn’t find him though – even with the help of a friend who had seen him more than… Continue reading Looking for an Owl
