Back to the Zoo

This morning I had an appointment with a dentist – just to get to know them and know what they can or will do for me. It looks like their policies are quite similar to the dentist I have been going to for the last few years in Winnipeg. They are going to contact them… Continue reading Back to the Zoo

Return to the Greater Vancouver Zoo

Yesterday was a beautiful day for another walk at the zoo (which is not in Vancouver) although the name kind of implies that it is in Vancouver. Oh Well.

Back at the Zoo

I spend quite a bit of time at the Assiniboine Park Zoo – both as a volunteer and sometimes just as a member on my own time. A couple of days ago, I had to be there for a meeting in the afternoon, so I decided to go a bit earlier with my camera. Inside Assiniboine… Continue reading Back at the Zoo
