A Stroll Around Assiniboine Park

After a big Saturday morning breakfast, I decided to head over to Assiniboine Park to see what I could see. I started out at the English Gardens to check on the hole in the tree that had been made by the Pileated Woodpecker earlier in the spring. Last time I checked on it, I couldn’t… Continue reading A Stroll Around Assiniboine Park

A Morning Walk at St. Vital Park

I had an errand to do in the St. Vital area, so decided to take my camera and head for St. Vital Park for a walk. It was a beautiful morning. Although I walked around the entire park, most of my photos were taken at the pond. It is a really nice pond that has… Continue reading A Morning Walk at St. Vital Park

A Morning Stroll at a very busy Fort Whyte Alive

I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive a little later than I usually go. Normally I am there at opening, but it was about an hour after than when I arrived. The parking lot was almost full, so I knew there would be a lot of people in there and I thought about turning around… Continue reading A Morning Stroll at a very busy Fort Whyte Alive

A Morning Walk at Bunn’s Creek

It was a cloudy/dull morning – not a great type of day for photo taking – but I headed to Bunn’s Creek in my never-ending search for the Cardinals that are often seen there. Not seen by me – but by many others. A few months ago, I met a woman who showed me the… Continue reading A Morning Walk at Bunn’s Creek

Last Stop Today – Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

My car ended up taking me east again and when we reached Highway 59, we turned south to head back in the direction of home. But, when we got to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park we turned in there. I hadn’t been to the Cedar Bog trail since my “lost in Bird’s Hill Park day”, so… Continue reading Last Stop Today – Bird’s Hill Provincial Park

Lost in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 1

We are in the midst of a very brief winter warm up with a +6C temperature yesterday and about 0C today. I decided to avoid the trail in Bird’s Hill yesterday as it would probably be crowded and harder to social distance. I headed out there today for a walk. I stopped at the Cedar… Continue reading Lost in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 1

A Chilly Walk at Bunn’s Creek

It seems that the Cardinals and the Owl get advance notice when I’m heading for Bunn’s Creek – because as usual – they were nowhere to be seen. The temperature was a balmy -19C with a windchill feeling like -30C, so I bundled up and headed for my walk under the bright blue sky with… Continue reading A Chilly Walk at Bunn’s Creek

A Walk around Assiniboine Park after Doctor Appointment

This morning started off with a return visit to my doctor about my shoulder. Of course, I had another x-ray and then he had me show him the movement I now have. He said I am slightly above the normal for movement at this time in my recovery. I asked about using weights to get… Continue reading A Walk around Assiniboine Park after Doctor Appointment

Back to Bunn’s Creek

I am still trying to find the Cardinals at Bunn’s Creek and they are just never around on the days/times when I go. I still had a nice walk, talked to a few people and pet a few dogs – so the walk wasn’t a waste of time or energy. One very helpful lady who… Continue reading Back to Bunn’s Creek

Fort Whyte Alive this Morning

Due to Covid, we are back in a lockdown here again, with many businesses closed or with reduced hours and/or customers. I know the Assiniboine Park Zoo is closed, but was delighted to find out that Fort Whyte Alive is open. The hours are the same, but they were in the process of setting up… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive this Morning
