Fort Whyte Alive on a Beautiful Sunny Day

After yesterday’s dismal looking sun, I wasn’t going to waste today’s beautiful sun, so I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive for a walk. The temperature was a lovely -7C. This is the sun we normally see a lot of in Sunny Manitoba. The Chickadees were not very co-operative today, but I managed a couple… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive on a Beautiful Sunny Day

Time for a Nature Walk

Yesterday was my Mom’s funeral. She was 97 years old and had been in a nursing home since just before the start of the COVID-19 shutdowns. Only 10 people are allowed at funerals at this time, so only the basic family here in the city could go. Today, I needed time in nature, so I… Continue reading Time for a Nature Walk

Life Goes On

Since my fall in December, I haven’t gone out much at all. I did take a return trip to Fort Whyte Alive, but otherwise, it has been only grocery shopping at the store next door to my apartment or ordering online for delivery. My FitBit bugs me to keep moving – so I walk around… Continue reading Life Goes On

A Walk in the Snow

With the temperature hovering around 0C, I decided to head over to Fort Whyte Alive where I could walk. There is still snow on the ground, which arrived a few days ago. The forecast says the temperature will be up around 10C in a few days – but I’m not holding my breath. The water… Continue reading A Walk in the Snow

A Snowy Walk

It snowed here a couple of days ago and the snow is still here! It has been several years since we’ve had snow in October, but when we have, it is usually gone the next day. This time, it just might stay until spring. 😦 I decided that I could survive a walk in the… Continue reading A Snowy Walk

A Chilly Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

It was 2C this morning when I headed over to Fort White Alive after my breakfast at the Red Top Restaurant. It started off cloudy, but after awhile, I saw the sun trying to get out from behind the clouds and soon afterwards, the clouds pretty much disappeared. 🙂 After the sun made an appearance,… Continue reading A Chilly Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

A Fall Evening at Fort Whyte Alive

I thought it would be interesting to take morning photos at Fort Whyte Alive on the same day that I had booked to visit in the evening for the Sunset Goose Flights. I have never been to Fort Whyte Alive in the evening before. They normally close at 6:00 pm. I arrived just before 6:30… Continue reading A Fall Evening at Fort Whyte Alive

A Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

As I mentioned in my last post, I was at Fort Whyte Alive in the morning the other day and took several more photos than what I showed. Here they are! It was a cloudy morning, but the critters and the fall colours didn’t fail me. I was already booked to return in the evening… Continue reading A Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

More on my Vehicle

It has now been more than a week since my aborted trip to Riding Mountain National Park. My vehicle was in the shop from Thursday, when I returned home until Tuesday. The problem was the timing chain along with some damage done by the timing chain. The dealership (Murray Chev Olds) where I originally purchased… Continue reading More on my Vehicle

A Hot Summer Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

I had planned on heading out to either the Whiteshell Provincial Park or Grand Beach Provincial Park today, to spend some time with my feet in a lake. Unfortunately, rain was in the forecast, so I decided to hang out in Winnipeg and headed to Fort Whyte Alive. All signs of rain left and it… Continue reading A Hot Summer Morning at Fort Whyte Alive
