Assiniboine Park Zoo in the Winter

There is a lot of good views of the critters in the Assiniboine Park Zoo in the winter.

I went there… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Zoo in the Winter

English Garden at Assiniboine Park

I am often in the Assiniboine Park because I volunteer at the zoo, but I seldom go into the English Garden, which is right beside the zoo.  Yesterday, I was early for my shift and decided to spend the extra time in the garden. I only had my phone with me, so the pictures are… Continue reading English Garden at Assiniboine Park

A nice leaf covered path… Continue reading A Walk in the Park

Not today, but tomorrow, I’ll be moving back to my apartment.  The last 3 weeks have been fun and I’ll miss having a dog when I am living on my own again. I have posted most of the pictures I took of my 3 weeks with Toby on my FaceBook page, but I did save… Continue reading Moving On
