A Walk at Chem Lake Wetlands

It was time for a new place to walk and explore. I knew that near the Bridal Falls, there was also a provincial park that I had been at a few years ago when I was visiting my daughter. I was kind of heading for that park, but must have missed a turn and then… Continue reading A Walk at Chem Lake Wetlands

A Few Ducks and a Bit More

Taking advantage of this beautiful weather, I headed over to the Great Blue Heron Reserve for a walk yesterday. There are still plenty of ducks and geese around. I wasn’t aware that they had bird feeders out for the smaller birds, but now I know about this photo opportunity. I didn’t go to the bird… Continue reading A Few Ducks and a Bit More

From Cloudy & Smoky to Clear & Cool

The last week or so, it has been very smoky here. I know this is fairly normal, and even though this is my first year here, I know the dry season lasted later than usual. Because it is so dry, there have been fires in the forests and the smoke had blocked my view of… Continue reading From Cloudy & Smoky to Clear & Cool

Did Someone Ask for Canada Geese?

I didn’t ask for Canada Geese, but I certainly enjoy watching them gather. I’ll be sorry to see them head south, but will be here to watch them when they return in the spring. I managed to get a few photos other than Canada Geese – Mallard Ducks, Grey Squirrel and a scenery shot –… Continue reading Did Someone Ask for Canada Geese?

Walking Around Sardis Pond

I love finding new places to walk, but always enjoy returning to my favourite spots too. Yesterday, it was time to return to Sardis Pond. Last time I was at this pond, there were hundreds of Canada Geese but this time, I could count the total numbers of them on one hand. Before leaving home… Continue reading Walking Around Sardis Pond

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

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

Dodger and I

As many of you know, I used to have many pets. Our home was considered to be a petting zoo between all the critters we kept. Since I lost Chester, my last dog about 6 years ago, I have been without pets of my own. My daughter was out of the house and still had… Continue reading Dodger and I

Checking in on the Duckling at Sardis Pond

I have become a regular walker at Sardis Park/Pond. The little duckling and the turtle that I saw with it most of the time keep me coming back to check on them. The sheer numbers of Canada Geese are overwhelming this park now though. There were also several American Black Ducks – but those numbers… Continue reading Checking in on the Duckling at Sardis Pond

Back for a Walk at Sardis Park/Pond

I am getting close to having my apartment somewhat organized. The problem is that the stuff that has not found a spot yet, doesn’t have much in the way of choices. So, there is one corner of the livingroom that is holding more items that it should. But – this morning I needed a walk,… Continue reading Back for a Walk at Sardis Park/Pond
