Bunn’s Creek and Lockport

This morning I had decided to go out to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park. Then I thought I might as well drive through the city instead of taking the perimeter and I could stop at Bunn’s Creek. I did that, but didn’t stay long at Bunn’s Creek. I checked out the areas where I was told… Continue reading Bunn’s Creek and Lockport

A Stroll around St. Vital Park

The weather has been great for going on walks lately and I am enjoying the fresh air and exercise. This morning I decided I was going to walk around St. Vital Park. I found some White-tailed Deer not far from the park, but I can’t take photos while driving, so I hoped to see them… Continue reading A Stroll around St. Vital Park

Back to Bunn’s Creek

I am still trying to find the Cardinals at Bunn’s Creek and they are just never around on the days/times when I go. I still had a nice walk, talked to a few people and pet a few dogs – so the walk wasn’t a waste of time or energy. One very helpful lady who… Continue reading Back to Bunn’s Creek

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
