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

The Neverending Move

In some respects, it was nice to have lots of time to move out and move in – but since I had so much time, I didn’t rush and it feels like this interim period will never end now.  I still have 3 weeks to pay both mortgage (and related expenses) and rent and I… Continue reading The Neverending Move

I Went for a Walk

Today I decided it was time to really explore the path along the Seine River that runs behind my complex. I decided to turn right when I got to the path and see if I could walk to the perimeter highway.  Unfortunately the path ended before the highway, so I turned back to see how… Continue reading I Went for a Walk

Flower & Moving Updates

My tall Iris flowers are now out.  The only problem with the tall Iris plants is that they go down in the wind, and wind is certainly not uncommon here. I got a couple of pictures a few days ago and then I took one picture this morning after they were mostly on the ground.… Continue reading Flower & Moving Updates

Whew!

OK – it finally looks like I have survived the cold of the century.  For the last 3 weeks I have been practically down and out with the nastiest cold I have ever had.  I continued to work – since I need a paycheque to survive, but had a constant supply of Tylenol and/or Advil… Continue reading Whew!
