A Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

The last time I went to Fort Whyte Alive, I was prepared for wet & muddy paths and I wore my pair of rubber boots. The boots came in very handy as I waded through water & mud in a few spots. Today, I decided that it hadn’t rained in a few days and the… Continue reading A Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

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

A Springtime Stroll at Fort Whyte Alive

Right after Teddy, Macy and I had our morning walk, I decided to drive over to Fort Whyte Alive to have another walk. There is still a lot of snow and ice covering much of the trails and the lakes, but walking is ok. Every trail did have some gravel or sand showing and it… Continue reading A Springtime Stroll at Fort Whyte Alive

A Chilly Walk Around Assiniboine Park

We are actually having amazing weather this year and now that we are into November, this certainly won’t last much longer. It was chilly when I went for my walk though. The temperature was about 1C with enough of a wind to make it feel colder. Of course, I managed a few photos on my… Continue reading A Chilly Walk Around Assiniboine Park

Cedar Bog Trail

After breakfast yesterday I drove over to the Cedar Bog trail for a little longer walk than I had at Prairie Winds trail. The temperature was warmer for this walk than the earlier one. That ended this trail and tomorrow we will continue with my 3rd walk.

A Few Days

I’ll start with a follow-up of Bowser’s 3rd try at Dog Dash. He did much better than the times before. He was still very stressed about the whole thing, but he was walking on the treadmill for most of the time. I could have booked another visit, but decided to just see how he did… Continue reading A Few Days

Sturgeon Creek and Assiniboine Park

This morning I decided to make a return trip to Sturgeon Creek. I could hear lots of birds singing, but was unable to get any photos of any of them – other than some swallows who I am guessing are Bank Swallows that nest along the bank. The photos of the swallows are not great,… Continue reading Sturgeon Creek and Assiniboine Park

A Couple of Walks in Assiniboine Park

A few days ago, I went to Assiniboine Park for a mid morning walk and this morning I made a return trip for an early morning walk. There wasn’t a huge difference in what I saw on the walks, but there were a lot less people around for the early one. There was also a… Continue reading A Couple of Walks in Assiniboine Park

Bunn’s Creek and Sturgeon Creek Walks

I thought that when I actually got a photo of one of the Cardinals that live around and near Bunn’s Creek, I would be satisfied – but I would really like better photos. So, I headed back there again a few days ago for another try. My first sighting that morning was upsetting. I found… Continue reading Bunn’s Creek and Sturgeon Creek Walks

Fort Whyte Alive this Morning

Plenty of birds are arriving here in Manitoba after vacationing in the south over the winter. It is interesting to watch as they arrive here – some will stay for the summer and and some will head further north. I’ll be keeping my eye on the Bald Eagle nest, but not sure how much I’ll… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive this Morning
