A Chilly Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

It was 2C this morning when I headed over to Fort White Alive after my breakfast at the Red Top Restaurant. It started off cloudy, but after awhile, I saw the sun trying to get out from behind the clouds and soon afterwards, the clouds pretty much disappeared. 🙂 After the sun made an appearance,… Continue reading A Chilly Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

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

A Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

What – Another Move???

As many of you know, I lived in my little old house for 33 years. I sold it when I retired, since I wouldn’t be able to afford the upkeep on it with just my pensions. It was a very old house (built in 1900). I am currently in my 3rd apartment in the 4… Continue reading What – Another Move???

Morning Stroll at Fort Whyte Alive

Living in the middle of a city, I have found that I need to spend time in nature as often as I can. Listening to critter sounds is what I need, instead of traffic or people yelling or sirens. I like to just stroll along casually, listening to or watching the birds and any other… Continue reading Morning Stroll at Fort Whyte Alive

Riding Mountain National Park – June 9, continued

After checking into my beautiful deluxe room at Elkhorn Resort, I headed downstairs and outside to visit the horses at the stables. I talked to one of the employees, asking about the extra horses they had compared to other visits. She told me that they often board horses over the winter but due to COVID-19,… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park – June 9, continued

Assiniboine Park Zoo in the Winter

There is a lot of good views of the critters in the Assiniboine Park Zoo in the winter. Most of the animals live in the climate that we have here and get much more active in the winter than in the summer, when they would rather find a shady place to sleep. I went there… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Zoo in the Winter

Winnipeg to Vancouver – Day 2

Even though it was cloudy this morning, I headed to Grayling Lake to see about a sunrise photo. Today is a bonus already even with the clouds because the forecast said rain all day and it isn’t raining, It also wasn’t going to show me a sunrise – but even without the sun, the early… Continue reading Winnipeg to Vancouver – Day 2

Winnipeg to Vancouver – Day 1, Part 2

After my lunch and then getting signed into my room at the Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast, it was time to head back out to see what I could find. I headed for the Bison enclosure and on the way, I found this little Black Bear – all by him or her self. He did not… Continue reading Winnipeg to Vancouver – Day 1, Part 2
