A Walk and Some Salmon

It was raining in the morning, but when the rain stopped, I headed out for my walk. It has been several days since I’ve been to the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve – so that is where I went. Until recently, I had always lived in Manitoba and there are no Salmon in the lakes,… Continue reading A Walk and Some Salmon

Chilliwack Summer Ends

In Chilliwack, the summers are warm and partly cloudy and the winters are very cold, wet, and overcast. Over the course of the year, the temperature typically varies from 1 °C to 26 °C and is rarely below -6 °C or above 32 °C. Whoever wrote the above has no idea what “very cold” means.… Continue reading Chilliwack Summer Ends

A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail – part 2

I took so many photos along this trail yesterday that I couldn’t get them all into one post. So, to continue on my walk, I actually missed this guy perched on a tree right along the path. I saw him (or her) as he took flight and landed on a tree on the other side… Continue reading A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail – part 2

More About the Move & Another Walk or Two

One thing about a long distance move is that it takes much longer for your furniture to reach the destination than it takes to actually get there yourself. I knew this, but I had a carload of my own items and did not want to take my time so I divided my drives into 4… Continue reading More About the Move & Another Walk or Two

RMNP – part 3 – May, 2022

I continued to drive aimlessly throughout the park – stopping for photos and to just enjoy the views. I decided to head back to Wasagaming where I could get myself something to eat. I was glad to see the bakery was open so I had a wonderful & very filling lunch. Then I walked over… Continue reading RMNP – part 3 – May, 2022

Finally – Back to Riding Mountain National Park

Spring was so slow to arrive this year and there are spots where snow still exists (just days before June). I’ve been wanting to get to RMNP for ages. Last year I was there in April, but this year the roads have been under water or washed out in many places. The park had even… Continue reading Finally – Back to Riding Mountain National Park

A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 2

After leaving Wasagaming, I headed north towards the Wishing Well. There is (of course) a well to collect coins as you make your wish, but I go to take photos of the birds in the water and was hoping to find some fish in the little stream that runs through it. In the summer and… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 2

Setting Up an Aquarium

It has been a few years since I have had any pets and even more years since I’ve had an aquarium. For a few years I had several aquariums going at a time with different fish or critters in them. It is hard to find apartments that allow any pets around here unless you can… Continue reading Setting Up an Aquarium

Taking a Break from Packing

I have quite a bit of my packing done and will be living with boxes for awhile. There isn’t much more I can do now since I am still living here for 3 1/2 weeks. I was going to head for Oak Hammock Marsh, but changed my mind while driving and went to Lockport to… Continue reading Taking a Break from Packing
