May 27 – Tamboti

No fog this morning, but some clouds which just might make a nice sunrise. I wasn’t even off the camp road when I met an Elephant willing to pose for me. Without the fog from yesterday, it was even light enough to see.   A couple of Wildebeests were next and then the rest of… Continue reading May 27 – Tamboti

May 21 – Olifants

Yesterday afternoon, I took a couple of pictures of the Aloes that grow here and a couple of the Squirrels. The Squirrels were on the ground when I saw them – so I guess they are Ground Squirrels. 🙂     I planned my route last night to drive this morning, so set out at… Continue reading May 21 – Olifants

Bug Day

It was 19C with 98% humidity when Chester and I walked along the Red River this morning.  It is only supposed to get up to 26C this afternoon, but with that much humidity, I closed the windows and turned the air conditioner on when we got back home again.    It had rained last night, but… Continue reading Bug Day


I love days like this.  It is very pleasant walking in the morning with a temperature of 16C (which also lets the house cool down overnight) and then it is going up to 25C by the afternoon (not too hot like last week).  We may get some rain today, but they are just talking about… Continue reading Stuff

Heat Wave Continues

At 7am, when Chester and I walked along the Red River this morning, the temperature was 23C and with the humidity it feels like 29C.  That translates to 84.2F.  They are saying 37C this afternoon which is 98.6F – wow! When it gets this hot, everyone is running their air conditioners and/or fans and there… Continue reading Heat Wave Continues

Return of the Beaver

It was partly cloudy and 17C when Chester and I took our walk along the Red River this morning.  They say it will get up to 28C this afternoon and 33C tomorrow.  I may have to turn on the air conditioner.  🙂 At first it seemed like Chester and I were the only critters around… Continue reading Return of the Beaver

Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.  Hope you have a great day. It is Manitoba Marathon Day here today.  Several thousand people run for 26.2 km around the city – some in relay races, some running a 1/2 marathon, some racing in wheelchairs and some just doing little fun runs.  I have… Continue reading Happy Father’s Day

Chester and a Deer

This morning it was 16C and drizzling rain when I decided to drive out to Birds Hill Park to look for deer.  Of course Chester came along for the ride and we had to stop at a place to let him stretch his legs.  He was on leash, of course – but it was a… Continue reading Chester and a Deer

Happy Birthday Chester

Chester is 8 years old today!  Or he was 8 sometime around now anyway.  When you don’t know the exact date, you do the best you can at estimating, with the information you get.  We had actually decided that May 1st would be his day, but snow and work got in the way – so… Continue reading Happy Birthday Chester

Monday, Monday
