My Second Walk of the Day at Assiniboine Park

On my way home from Fort Whyte Alive, I decided to drive into Assiniboine Park to continue my walking. Of course, I was looking for more photo opportunities and I found some. 🙂 I didn’t go into the zoo, but the Heavy Horse Centre is viewable from outside the zoo. The Mallard Ducks turned to… Continue reading My Second Walk of the Day at Assiniboine Park

Nearing the End (I HOPE) of our Neverending Winter

Although there is still snow and ice in abundance here, there is also water – lots of water. Due to our high amount of snowfall this year, the melting snow and ice is now causing flooding in many parts of the province. Winnipeg (or Winterpeg, which it is often called) has almost made it through… Continue reading Nearing the End (I HOPE) of our Neverending Winter

Last Stop of the Day – Kildonan Park

Something that I love to do is walk. I walk because I enjoy it and also because it is a healthy way to exercise. On my way back home, I was driving right past Kildonan Park, so I thought another walk would be nice. I started at the Duck Pond/Witches Hut and headed out for… Continue reading Last Stop of the Day – Kildonan Park

Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Autumn has arrived with quite a drop in temperature. We were lucky enough to have warm weather well into October, but reality is back with cloudy & cool days. I decided that a short drive to Fort Whyte Alive would give me a good walk and maybe some photo opportunities. Since the last photo was… Continue reading Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Last Stop on the Way Home

After leaving the Captain Kennedy House & Gardens, I continued along River Road until I got to the highway that turns into Main Street as we head back to Winnipeg. Right on Main Street is Kildonan Park, so I had to turn into there. 😉 First stop (well the only stop, since I walked to… Continue reading Last Stop on the Way Home

A Fort Whyte Alive Walk This Morning

It was a chilly morning today, when I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive with my camera. The first tree I noticed has changed the leaves to yellow instead of the green they have been all summer. I guess autumn has officially arrived. I do love autumn, but it is just too close to winter.… Continue reading A Fort Whyte Alive Walk This Morning

Bunn’s Creek in the Early Autumn

Yesterday morning I decided it was time to go back to Bunn’s Creek for my walk. It has been about a month since I’ve been there. My first sighting was a beautiful Belted Kindfisher. He was on the opposite side of the creek and he tested my camera’s zoom ability. Amazingly enough, I got a… Continue reading Bunn’s Creek in the Early Autumn

Always Something to see at Fort Whyte Alive

I’ll start with my “before leaving home” shots. My Sunflower plant still has flowers but much smaller than the first ones and just at the bottom of the plant – and a Blue Jay on the tree just off my balcony. Then I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive to see what I could find.… Continue reading Always Something to see at Fort Whyte Alive

Back to Fort Whyte Alive

It has been awhile since my last visit to Fort Whyte Alive, so this morning it was time to head back there. It is much quieter than during breeding season, but at this time of year that is normal. There were still plenty of photo opportunities. It was a nice morning for a walk –… Continue reading Back to Fort Whyte Alive

Kildonan Park – Last Stop of the Day

I headed back to Winnipeg after stopping at Captain Kennedy House and since I was on Main Street, it was convenient to stop at Kildonan Park for my last stop of the day. I always love to walk through & take photos of the gardens near the beginning of the park. Then I moved over… Continue reading Kildonan Park – Last Stop of the Day
