A Short Stroll before Vaccine Time

My COVID vaccine appointment is for the afternoon today, but I still need some time to walk (instead of sitting around on the computer at home) – so I went to Assiniboine Park to check out the English Garden and to see if I can find the Pileated Woodpecker again. No luck on finding the… Continue reading A Short Stroll before Vaccine Time

Geese, Ducks and More

It was such a beautiful morning yesterday, so I headed back to Fort Whyte Alive to walk after the snow had melted. The wind died down, the sky was blue and the temperature was back above 0C. Actually, it was about 10C and absolutely perfect for walking. Happy Easter!

Fort Whyte Alive after a Fresh Snow

This morning I decided to head over to Fort Whyte Alive and so that is what I did and arrived a few minutes after they opened at 9:00 am. I stopped on the road as I was driving in to get a photo of some of the Canada Geese and Sea Gulls at the edge… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive after a Fresh Snow

A Morning Walk at Bunn’s Creek Trail

I was hoping that the beautiful weather we have been having would mean that the ice should have melted on the trails and for most of it, there was no ice. Most of the trail was dry, but parts were quite wet. I did run into an icy area and decided to turn around at… Continue reading A Morning Walk at Bunn’s Creek Trail

A Springtime walk around Fort Whyte Alive

This morning I decided to head over to Fort Whyte Alive for my walk. I phoned ahead to find out if the paths were still icy and they advised me that some spots were, but much has melted. I decided to put my spikes on just to be careful. It turned out that the spikes… Continue reading A Springtime walk around Fort Whyte Alive

Time for a Nature Walk

Yesterday was my Mom’s funeral. She was 97 years old and had been in a nursing home since just before the start of the COVID-19 shutdowns. Only 10 people are allowed at funerals at this time, so only the basic family here in the city could go. Today, I needed time in nature, so I… Continue reading Time for a Nature Walk

A Walk around Assiniboine Park after Doctor Appointment

This morning started off with a return visit to my doctor about my shoulder. Of course, I had another x-ray and then he had me show him the movement I now have. He said I am slightly above the normal for movement at this time in my recovery. I asked about using weights to get… Continue reading A Walk around Assiniboine Park after Doctor Appointment

A Walk in the Snow

With the temperature hovering around 0C, I decided to head over to Fort Whyte Alive where I could walk. There is still snow on the ground, which arrived a few days ago. The forecast says the temperature will be up around 10C in a few days – but I’m not holding my breath. The water… Continue reading A Walk in the Snow

A Chilly Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

It was 2C this morning when I headed over to Fort White Alive after my breakfast at the Red Top Restaurant. It started off cloudy, but after awhile, I saw the sun trying to get out from behind the clouds and soon afterwards, the clouds pretty much disappeared. 🙂 After the sun made an appearance,… Continue reading A Chilly Fall Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

Looking for an Owl

After walking the dogs this morning, I headed to the English Garden beside the Zoo at Assiniboine Park. Several people have been seeing a Barred Owl there and I wanted to see and photograph it also. I couldn’t find him though – even with the help of a friend who had seen him more than… Continue reading Looking for an Owl
