Sunny Morning at Chem Lake Wetlands

We have had a few cloudy and/or rainy days lately, and when I saw the forecast was for sunshine I decided to head out to Chem Lake Wetlands for my walk. It was so beautiful in the sun! A Couple of views from the still frozen lake. The sun hadn’t made it past the mountains… Continue reading Sunny Morning at Chem Lake Wetlands

Back to the Greater Vancouver Zoo for a Walk

One of the nice things about walking around the zoo is that the paths are in great shape regardless of the weather. Many trails can get muddy and difficult to walk on. As usual, I started out by going left and walking up to where the Lions & Tiger are. The Lions were not visible,… Continue reading Back to the Greater Vancouver Zoo for a Walk

Back to Fairfield Island

Although rain was in the forecast, I decided that I needed a good walk, so I headed back to Fairfield Island with my camera. The sky was partly cloudy, but the sun did make its way out to brighten things up. He quickly brought his wing in and looked very majestic instantly.

I am Not used to having Spring in January

Being a lifelong Manitoba resident (until I moved west last summer), I am used to extreme cold with spring finally showing up around the end of March (sometimes) or April (more often). I am loving the British Columbia weather. This may be a one-time thing and next winter may last longer, but I am taking… Continue reading I am Not used to having Spring in January

Life in Chilliwack

Many of you know that I lived in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada for my entire life, until last July, when I moved to Chilliwack in British Columbia – still in Canada. Winnipeg is often called Winterpeg for good reason. It would not be winter without the -40 C and below temperatures. Add the blustery winds to… Continue reading Life in Chilliwack

Fairfield Island

My friend Karen – who used to live in Chilliwack gave me directions to Fairfield Island for a place to walk. So, today the sun was shining and I decided it would be a good day to check it out. To get there I had to drive on a road over the Hope River Bridge… Continue reading Fairfield Island

Busy, Busy, Busy

It has been about 2 months since I arrived at my new home in British Columbia. I did quite a bit of exploring, walking and taking photos, but suddenly it was time to start getting things done to finalize my move. I have to get my driver’s license changed from a Manitoba License to a… Continue reading Busy, Busy, Busy

Bridal Veil Falls

A few years ago, my daughter had brought me to the Bridal Veil Falls when I was visiting with her. I was probably in a bit better shape, because I don’t remember how hard the steep walk up from the parking lot was. Although maybe I just remember the good part of the walk (downhill)… Continue reading Bridal Veil Falls

I Moved

Last winter in Winterpeg (Winnipeg) was another nasty cold winter with too much wind & snow. I decided that it would be my last winter in Manitoba. On July 11th, I packed my car and as soon as the movers had my boxes & furniture, I left Winnipeg. I didn’t make it far the first… Continue reading I Moved
