Day 2 at Riding Mountain National Park

I had decided I wasn’t going to set an alarm to get up and get out for the sunrises this trip – but amazingly enough, I work up early anyway. So – I headed out while it was still dark. I was greeted by the beautiful moon as soon as I went outside. It was… Continue reading Day 2 at Riding Mountain National Park

Geese, Ducks and More

It was such a beautiful morning yesterday, so I headed back to Fort Whyte Alive to walk after the snow had melted. The wind died down, the sky was blue and the temperature was back above 0C. Actually, it was about 10C and absolutely perfect for walking. Happy Easter!

Wandering Around

This morning I decided to take a return drive to Lockport to see how the river looked there, as well as seeing what birds and/or critters I could find. Of course, I always like watching the water flowing through the locks as well. I headed back to the car and started driving – ending up… Continue reading Wandering Around

Towards Selkirk and North

I was kind of deciding to go west a bit, but once we were approaching Selkirk, we ended up going through and continuing north on the same road. It has been many years since I’ve been in Selkirk and it looks nothing like it did way back then. Just before Selkirk, I stopped to take… Continue reading Towards Selkirk and North

Walking around at Lockport

There was absolutely nothing written in my calendar for today – so I decided to head out to Lockport to look for birds and see how the ice on the river was there. There was actually more ice than I thought there would be – closer to the locks as well. Then I noticed a… Continue reading Walking around at Lockport

Looking for Hummingbirds

I haven’t been to the English Gardens looking for Hummingbirds for awhile – and the last time I went to the Gardens was a chilly morning, so they weren’t active yet. Today, I went in the afternoon when it was nice & warm. Unfortunately, they were too fast this time – LOL – but I… Continue reading Looking for Hummingbirds

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

Pelicans at Lockport

Pelicans are so much fun to watch. Sometimes they are a bit of a challenge to photograph, but I just keep snapping and usually end up with some fairly good photos. One thing I noticed today is the way they fish together. Each bird in the group dives at the same time and comes back… Continue reading Pelicans at Lockport

Fort Whyte Alive – Oct 20/19

I spent the morning wandering around at Fort Whyte Alive and took a few photos. As usual, you can click on one and scroll through them at a larger size to see them better. Dedicated to my brother-in-law, John Panting (Oct 20/41 – May 9/19) John and my sister Sharon were married for 51 years… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive – Oct 20/19
