Looking for Spring

I went out for a walk along the Seine River (well, the still frozen Seine River), to see if I could find any signs of spring. There are lots of Canada Geese back here in Winnipeg, but I kind of suspect that they have teamed up with Mother Nature in this April Fools joke on… Continue reading Looking for Spring

A Walk with the Deer

I am back house/dog sitting with my big buddy Toby. It was time to go for a morning walk and we were greeted by some White-tailed Deer just outside the yard. They gracefully trotted away and we continued on to the river and walked along the edge.   A pair of Canada Geese were on the… Continue reading A Walk with the Deer

Welcome Back Winter (NOT)

A nice leaf covered path… Continue reading A Walk in the Park

Back to Fort Whyte Alive

There are 2 places that I love, but haven’t been to visit much this year.   My vacation in Kruger National Park took up plenty of time, along with my move and then my mother’s fall that broke her shoulder. One of the places is  Fort Whyte Alive – right in Winnipeg, which makes it quick… Continue reading Back to Fort Whyte Alive
