A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail – part 2

I took so many photos along this trail yesterday that I couldn’t get them all into one post. So, to continue on my walk, I actually missed this guy perched on a tree right along the path. I saw him (or her) as he took flight and landed on a tree on the other side… Continue reading A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail – part 2

A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail

Yesterday I had a couple of stops to make before heading out for my walk. So – when it was time to head over to the trail, I wasn’t sure how to get there from my current location. My handy-dandy map app was asked to direct me and I ended up in a new (to… Continue reading A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail

Return to the Greater Vancouver Zoo

Yesterday was a beautiful day for another walk at the zoo (which is not in Vancouver) although the name kind of implies that it is in Vancouver. Oh Well. Before heading out I decided I should have the oil changed in my car, so I stopped at a nearby Mr. Lube location. Just as that… Continue reading Return to the Greater Vancouver Zoo

Back at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve

Each time I go back to this beautiful Nature Reserve, I explore a little bit more and this time was no exception. Some of the photos are cropped by WordPress to fit, but you can see the full photo by clicking on it. A pair of Mallard Ducks and a beautiful (& very tall) dead… Continue reading Back at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve

So Many People Fishing on Vedder River

On this walk, I saw so many more people fishing from the banks or from the water (wearing hip waders) than I have seen before. The area near the bridge was not covered though and someone mentioned that the water was a bit too fast on that day. At least they are spread out instead… Continue reading So Many People Fishing on Vedder River

Just a Few Canada Geese

Canada Geese (& a few Snow Geese and ducks) have begun to gather where they can discuss their summer with friends & relatives before heading south for the winter. I was told by one of the regular walkers here that the numbers will increase to thousands (instead of just a few hundred) before they move… Continue reading Just a Few Canada Geese

A Walk in Nature

Of course, where would I walk other than somewhere in nature. This walk was in the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve. I covered a couple of trails that I hadn’t been on before, but I’m still not comfortable enough to veer off a path in case I get lost. On the way home I bought… Continue reading A Walk in Nature

Prince of Whales Boat Tour

About 3 or 4 years ago, my daughter and I were booked on a Whale watching tour, but due to weather conditions and the need for me to get back home before snow fell in the mountains, we had to cancel. It had already been cancelled once by the company due to the weather. Now… Continue reading Prince of Whales Boat Tour

Checking out the Greater Vancouver Zoo

After all the time I spent volunteering as well as visiting the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg, it was only a matter of time before I decided to check out the Greater Vancouver Zoo. This zoo is not in Vancouver, even though the name suggests that it is. It is actually in Aldergrove, B.C. The… Continue reading Checking out the Greater Vancouver Zoo

Return to the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve

The first 2 times I went to the Heron Nature Reserve, I saw one Great Blue Heron – and both times it was at the same spot (give or take a couple of meters). So, I headed there yesterday morning to see if I could find it again. It was drizzling a bit, but but… Continue reading Return to the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve
