Winnipeg to Vancouver – day 1, part 1

As if it isn’t far enough to go from Winnipeg to Vancouver, I decided to take a detour on day 1 and go to Riding Mountain National Park. It isn’t much good coming here just for a few hours, so I booked 2 nights here. 🙂 The drive here was uneventful. I drove the Trans… Continue reading Winnipeg to Vancouver – day 1, part 1

A Couple of Hours at Lockport with Pelicans (and friends)

Yesterday looked like a nice day and I had nothing in my calendar – so I headed north to Lockport to see and photograph the Pelicans around the dam on the Red River. I pulled into the park on the east side of the river when I got there and walked over to see if… Continue reading A Couple of Hours at Lockport with Pelicans (and friends)

Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – Day 1, Part 2

The drive to Riding Mountain National Park takes approximately 3 hours, but the clock stops as soon as I pass the East Gate on the way in on #19. The Black Bear was quite a distance away when I saw him and I stopped the car immediately while he stood beside the road.  As soon… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – Day 1, Part 2

July 6 and 7 – Riding Mountain National Park

I had been back home for almost a month and found that I was missing seeing critters and being in nature.  I could tell from the posts on the Riding Mountain National Park Facebook page that there were plenty of baby critters being seen there and decided I should see some Canadian critters and hopefully… Continue reading July 6 and 7 – Riding Mountain National Park

The Birds at Lockport

I took a drive to Lockport this morning to see how the ice was on the Red River at the locks today.  Not much ice around there, but some Gulls, Geese, Crow and a  Bald Eagle entertained me while I looked. First – a co-operative Gull posed for me – then a Crow flew overhead.… Continue reading The Birds at Lockport

A Day Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – Nov 9

It is a long way to go for a day trip – although not as far as it was to Churchill for my day trip there – but the flight time to Churchill was less than the drive time to RMNP. Anyway – the weather here is just so gorgeous, that I had to take… Continue reading A Day Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – Nov 9

I Went Birding

Birds are fascinating.  I look at them and try to take pictures of them all the time – but ask me what I saw, I am am often not quite sure.  I usually know what type of bird it was, but trying to narrow down to the particular bird is very hard to do. I… Continue reading I Went Birding

The Gull and The Duck

Near where I found the duck bump on the log, I found a gull the other day.  He was very cooperative and posed nicely for me so I took a few pictures of him before I noticed that the Mallard Duck was still being a wonderful bump on the log. The duck had been behind… Continue reading The Gull and The Duck

My 1000th Post

When I opened Word Press this morning I saw that I had 999 posts, which means this one is my 1,000th blog post.  Time flies when you’re having fun. Today’s pictures are from May 1st, which was Chester’s 10th birthday.  That is the day we woke up to a white ground after it had snowed… Continue reading My 1000th Post

Gull and a Sparrow

A couple of days ago, I saw a gull floating on the Red River when Chester and I went for our walk.   Of course, it was a long way away and hard to see, but the camera did a pretty good job of getting it close enough to see him.  I don’t know what kind… Continue reading Gull and a Sparrow
