When I left the apartment this morning I hadn’t planned on driving through 3 Provincial Parks – but I did. When I returned home, I decided to find out how many Provincial Parks are in Manitoba – maybe I can set a higher goal for another drive. 🙂 Google search tells me there are 92… Continue reading A Drive through 3 Manitoba Provincial Parks in 1 Day
Yesterday was Mother’s Day – so a belated Mother’s Day to all the mothers. Hope you had a good day. Social distancing makes it hard to get the hugs, but hopefully everyone got a phone call. My daughter called me and we had a lovely chat just before I headed out for my walk. We… Continue reading An Afternoon Walk in the Park
It felt like spring here in Winnipeg and with a temperature forecast to be -1C, it was time to find a spot in nature.

One of my favourite subjects has been a little Chickadee who comes to visit and grab a bite or two from my little supply of food I have… Continue reading Feeding the Chickadees

You can purchase an annual or a daily pass to enter the park normally, but this year they have waived the fee for the month of February. I was planning on buying an annual pass this year anyway, but decided I… Continue reading A Drive to Birds Hill Provincial Park
By something different, I mean we didn’t walk along the Red River today. 🙂 It is cold (3C and feels like -2C) and drizzling and windy but we went to Birds Hill Park – just north of the city in the hopes of finding deer. Also, yesterday afternoon, we drove back to Lockport in case… Continue reading Something Different
