A Return Visit to Bunn’s Creek Trail

After my first trip to Bunn’s Creek Trail, I checked a map to see where the creek ends so I can walk from there back to the park. It turns out that it ends when it enters the Red River and there is a parking lot there – so that is where I headed this… Continue reading A Return Visit to Bunn’s Creek Trail

Re-visit to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights

Last year I bought an annual membership to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights here in Winnipeg. I went 3 or 4 times and I wrote a few articles here about it, but then I got busy and didn’t go back. There is so much to see that several visits are necessary to absorb all… Continue reading Re-visit to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights

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)

Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Part 4, Relax

There is just so much information in this museum, that it is impossible to take it all in at once.  Because of this, there are a couple of places to just relax.  Of course, there are plenty of spots to sit during your visit, but one place is here just to relax and reflect.  I… Continue reading Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Part 4, Relax

Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Part 1, The Forks

The Canadian Museum of Human Rights opened in Winnipeg a little over 4 years ago and I finally decided it was time to visit. I took a bus to The Forks instead of paying for parking.  We had been spoiled with having free parking there for such a long time, that many of us are… Continue reading Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Part 1, The Forks

Pelicans

I wasn’t successful in finding Pelicans when I drove north to Lockport last week, but I headed up there again this morning – just in case they had arrived.  It was a bright sunny morning, with the temperatures heading up to the high teens again, but it was very windy once I got there. A… Continue reading Pelicans

A Drive to Lockport

This morning after breakfast, I decided to take a drive north to Lockport. According to Wikipedia, “Lockport is a small unincorporated community in Manitoba, Canada located just 28 km north of the city of Winnipeg.” A few years ago I managed to drive there when there were dozens of beautiful Pelicans around and I hope… Continue reading A Drive to Lockport

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

Ice and Waterfowl

The Red and Assiniboine Rivers in Winnipeg are moving the ice around and trying to get it out of town.  The Canada Geese and Mallard Ducks don’t seem to mind the ice cold water and swim happily in it. After breakfast I went over to The Forks, where the Red and Assiniboine Rivers meet to… Continue reading Ice and Waterfowl

The Forks – end of March

I decided to wander over to the Forks to see how spring is progressing there.  The snow is pretty much gone, but the ice still remains on both the rivers – obviously not strong enough for even the geese to walk on in places though. The ice hut made from blocks of ice taken from… Continue reading The Forks – end of March
