Keeping Safe

Covid-19 is not the first pandemic that has threatened this world – but it is the current one. There was no internet for the other big ones though, and this has been a method of spreading the information (both true and untrue information) quickly for this pandemic. So – how are you doing? I have… Continue reading Keeping Safe

June 1 – Orpen

It was pretty chilly this morning, but the 3 of us on the drive along with the guide were hopefully of some great sightings. Unfortunately, it was just the usual critters and not actually many of them. Elephant, Bushbaby, Zebras, Impalas, Wildebeests, Giraffe and then Warthogs as we were almost back at camp. The only… Continue reading June 1 – Orpen

May 30 – Talamati

I was off to a leisurely start this morning – so it was light enough for a picture of the first critter and that was a Waterbuck. Next was a family of Southern Ground Hornbills holding a road block. Unfortunately, I was the 2nd car in the lineup, so my pictures were taken through the… Continue reading May 30 – Talamati

May 7 – Pretoriuskop

I woke up feeling refreshed after only about 5 hours of sleep, but it felt so good to sleep in a bed last night. The shower also felt wonderful. My final flight to land in the Kruger National Park at Skukuza was scheduled for 10:00 am, but I still had to pick up the SIM… Continue reading May 7 – Pretoriuskop

Still More from Assiniboine Park Zoo

A lot of the critters at Assiniboine Park Zoo were awake and active when I was there on Friday – so I have lots of pictures and videos to share.  So, we continue with more of them today.  🙂 Snow Leopard These are the 2 young ones that were born last year.  I couldn’t see… Continue reading Still More from Assiniboine Park Zoo

Assiniboine Park Zoo – April 2015

I picked up an annual membership to the Assiniboine Park Zoo so will be putting up highlights of many of the visits.  I love the critters there and the zoo gives me a place to walk and enjoy the outdoors, so I will likely go there often especially during the summer months. The bears were… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Zoo – April 2015

Chester again

Chester had another seizure last night.  It was about 9:30 pm or so and this time I was beside him before he even went down, so I made sure he landed safely on the floor.  It lasted about 3 minutes, but he came out of it differently from the last time.  The other time, he… Continue reading Chester again

This and That

It was 21C already this morning at 7 am when Chester and I walked along the Red River.  The chance of rain is now at 80% (although last night they were saying 100% probability for today).  The question is – will the daycamp go out to Woodlands for the day to Camp Y or will… Continue reading This and That

More of This and That

It was 17C when Chester and I headed towards the Red River for our walk this morning.  The sun was shining and there was little (if any) wind.  The moon was up in the sky, there were rowers on the river, there were lots of ducks and even a couple of beavers.  So – I… Continue reading More of This and That

Back to Normal (whatever that is)

I did not even check the temperature when Chester and I took our walk along the Red River this morning.  Now (around noon) it is 21C with 94% humidity and drizzling.  It was drizzling when we walked too.   It is supposed to get up to 25C by this afternoon. We couldn’t find any beavers today,… Continue reading Back to Normal (whatever that is)
