Walking Along Sturgeon Creek

Sturgeon Creek flows south into the Assiniboine River – not too far from where I live. Much of the the creek in Winnipeg has a walking path beside it. That is where I decided to walk yesterday. I drove to the parking lot that is just south of Portage Avenue, which is close to the… Continue reading Walking Along Sturgeon Creek

A Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

The last time I went to Fort Whyte Alive, I was prepared for wet & muddy paths and I wore my pair of rubber boots. The boots came in very handy as I waded through water & mud in a few spots. Today, I decided that it hadn’t rained in a few days and the… Continue reading A Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Spring at Oak Hammock Marsh

Yesterday, I drove north to Oak Hammock Marsh to have a walk. Last time I went there this year, I had to walk through deep snow and didn’t end up going far. It was hard work walking when each step took me to my knees (& sometimes deeper). There were still little spots of snow… Continue reading Spring at Oak Hammock Marsh

Nearing the End (I HOPE) of our Neverending Winter

Although there is still snow and ice in abundance here, there is also water – lots of water. Due to our high amount of snowfall this year, the melting snow and ice is now causing flooding in many parts of the province. Winnipeg (or Winterpeg, which it is often called) has almost made it through… Continue reading Nearing the End (I HOPE) of our Neverending Winter

Walking Around the Lakes

I continued my walk from yesterday and once I arrived back on the beach side, I could see more birds and a little closer from the far side. I wasn’t sure what the first bird was until I saw the 2nd one. The male is obviously a Hooded Merganser, so I checked and found out… Continue reading Walking Around the Lakes

A Springtime Stroll at Fort Whyte Alive

Right after Teddy, Macy and I had our morning walk, I decided to drive over to Fort Whyte Alive to have another walk. There is still a lot of snow and ice covering much of the trails and the lakes, but walking is ok. Every trail did have some gravel or sand showing and it… Continue reading A Springtime Stroll at Fort Whyte Alive

Oak Hammock Marsh in the Snow

It has been several months since I’ve been to Oak Hammock Marsh. Yesterday I received an e-mail from them asking if I wished to renew my membership. The membership had expired a couple of years ago as during the pandemic the building had been closed. No membership is needed to walk the trails around the… Continue reading Oak Hammock Marsh in the Snow

A Chilly Walk Around Assiniboine Park

We are actually having amazing weather this year and now that we are into November, this certainly won’t last much longer. It was chilly when I went for my walk though. The temperature was about 1C with enough of a wind to make it feel colder. Of course, I managed a few photos on my… Continue reading A Chilly Walk Around Assiniboine Park

Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Autumn has arrived with quite a drop in temperature. We were lucky enough to have warm weather well into October, but reality is back with cloudy & cool days. I decided that a short drive to Fort Whyte Alive would give me a good walk and maybe some photo opportunities. Since the last photo was… Continue reading Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Last Stop on the Way Home

After leaving the Captain Kennedy House & Gardens, I continued along River Road until I got to the highway that turns into Main Street as we head back to Winnipeg. Right on Main Street is Kildonan Park, so I had to turn into there. 😉 First stop (well the only stop, since I walked to… Continue reading Last Stop on the Way Home
