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

As 2022 Comes to an End

I went for a couple of nice walks today as the sun came out and it was a beautiful day. I’ll get to the photos from today soon, but for now I’ll post the last of my photos taken in the last few days before today. The first & second photos are of a beautiful… Continue reading As 2022 Comes to an End

Ice on the Pond

I headed over to Sardis Park & Pond this morning. It is a beautiful sunny morning with the temperature right at 0C with a slight wind to make it feel a bit cooler than that. So far, I am really loving this winter. The water looks to be a bit chilly this morning, but there… Continue reading Ice on the Pond

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

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?

Kangaroos and More

Yesterday, I decided to drive back to the Greater Vancouver Zoo. I had heard from a friend in Winnipeg, that 3 Kangaroos had been sent to this zoo from the Assiniboine Park Zoo recently. I haven’t seen any Kangaroos – so, of course, I had to go back again to look for them. I took… Continue reading Kangaroos and More

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

A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail

Yesterday I had a couple of stops to make before heading out for my walk. So – when it was time to head over to the trail, I wasn’t sure how to get there from my current location. My handy-dandy map app was asked to direct me and I ended up in a new (to… Continue reading A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail

Return to the Greater Vancouver Zoo

Yesterday was a beautiful day for another walk at the zoo (which is not in Vancouver) although the name kind of implies that it is in Vancouver. Oh Well. Before heading out I decided I should have the oil changed in my car, so I stopped at a nearby Mr. Lube location. Just as that… Continue reading Return to the Greater Vancouver Zoo

Prince of Whales Boat Tour

About 3 or 4 years ago, my daughter and I were booked on a Whale watching tour, but due to weather conditions and the need for me to get back home before snow fell in the mountains, we had to cancel. It had already been cancelled once by the company due to the weather. Now… Continue reading Prince of Whales Boat Tour
