My First trip to Beaudry Provincial Park

Until recently, I had not known about Beaudry Provincial Park. It is certainly the closest provincial park to the city, but isn’t well advertised. I had lived more in the eastern areas of Winnipeg and Beaudry is just to the west. It was a cloudy morning with a possibility of rain according to the forecast,… Continue reading My First trip to Beaudry Provincial Park

Looking for Pelicans

I don’t usually go out to walk trails on Saturday, since there are often too many people around to enjoy the walk and very difficult to socially distance – but this morning I thought I would head out to Lockport to see if any Pelicans would like to pose for photos. There were a few… Continue reading Looking for Pelicans

Wandering Around

This morning I decided to take a return drive to Lockport to see how the river looked there, as well as seeing what birds and/or critters I could find. Of course, I always like watching the water flowing through the locks as well. I headed back to the car and started driving – ending up… Continue reading Wandering Around

Walking the Trails in Assiniboine Park

Until my last move, I have always lived east of Assiniboine Park and always entered from the east. Since I moved west of the park a couple of months ago, I found out that there is a large western side of the park with trails. I have now been entering the west side and driving… Continue reading Walking the Trails in Assiniboine Park

Toby Time

Last week, I spent a couple of days with my big buddy Toby, while his family was out of town.  This guy keeps me moving!  🙂 I took a few pictures to share with everyone.  Too many pictures to show full sized, but you can click on one and scroll through the larger sizes.  He… Continue reading Toby Time

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

May 20 – Olifants

I was up and ready to go in plenty of time for the drive this morning. While waiting I took a picture of the moon.   Three of us were registered and then one more from last night’s drive asked if she could come along too. Luckily, the driver was the same this morning as… Continue reading May 20 – Olifants

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

A Couple of Walks

I have no pictures of my first walk from a few days ago.  I only went out to see if I could walk to the Perimeter Highway, which isn’t too far from my apartment.  I can see the traffic lights for it when I make my u-turn to get to my place. I hadn’t gone… Continue reading A Couple of Walks
