Fort Whyte Alive in the Afternoon

My trips to Fort Whyte Alive have always been first thing in the morning – but yesterday, I had something to do in the area later in the day and decided to have lunch there and hang around until it was time to go.  This way I would avoid the construction on Bishop Grandin Blvd… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive in the Afternoon

May 18 – Satara

I started off this foggy morning with a Helmeted Guinea Fowl road block. Guess they heard that I mentioned that I hadn’t been seeing them around Satara. The sun soon rose with a beautiful sun rise and cleared up the fog for a nice drive. Today, I had decided to drive south a bit to… Continue reading May 18 – Satara

May 10 – Pretoriuskop to Crocodile Bridge

First – a co-operative Gull posed for me – then a Crow flew overhead.… Continue reading The Birds at Lockport

Ice and Waterfowl

The Red and Assiniboine Rivers in Winnipeg are moving the ice around and trying to get it out of town.  The Canada Geese and Mallard Ducks don’t seem to mind the ice cold water and swim happily in it. After breakfast I went over to The Forks, where the Red and Assiniboine Rivers meet to… Continue reading Ice and Waterfowl

A Walk in the Rain

I had most of the day on my own Wednesday, since Angie had to work.  She gave me directions to a good place to walk so that was the plan.  It was pretty wet, but not raining when I woke up, so I headed out after breakfast. Of course, it started to rain within a… Continue reading A Walk in the Rain
