I am Not used to having Spring in January

Being a lifelong Manitoba resident (until I moved west last summer), I am used to extreme cold with spring finally showing up around the end of March (sometimes) or April (more often). I am loving the British Columbia weather. This may be a one-time thing and next winter may last longer, but I am taking… Continue reading I am Not used to having Spring in January

A Happy New Year Walk

January 1st wasn’t great for walking, so I took a long walk on January 2nd. My first stop was the Sardis Park/Pond in Chilliwack. This is one of my favourite places to walk – but I have to admit that all the walking spots I’ve found so far are all my favourites – LOL. When… Continue reading A Happy New Year Walk

It Felt Good to Get Out and Really Walk

For the first time in several days, the rain stopped and the sun came out. I often walk in any weather, but several days of pouring rain along with some cold weather kept me inside. I still walked though. My apartment building is a full block long and I walk up & down the stairs… Continue reading It Felt Good to Get Out and Really Walk

Chilliwack Summer Ends

In Chilliwack, the summers are warm and partly cloudy and the winters are very cold, wet, and overcast. Over the course of the year, the temperature typically varies from 1 °C to 26 °C and is rarely below -6 °C or above 32 °C. Whoever wrote the above has no idea what “very cold” means.… Continue reading Chilliwack Summer Ends

A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail – part 2

I took so many photos along this trail yesterday that I couldn’t get them all into one post. So, to continue on my walk, I actually missed this guy perched on a tree right along the path. I saw him (or her) as he took flight and landed on a tree on the other side… Continue reading A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail – part 2

A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail

Yesterday I had a couple of stops to make before heading out for my walk. So – when it was time to head over to the trail, I wasn’t sure how to get there from my current location. My handy-dandy map app was asked to direct me and I ended up in a new (to… Continue reading A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail

So Many People Fishing on Vedder River

On this walk, I saw so many more people fishing from the banks or from the water (wearing hip waders) than I have seen before. The area near the bridge was not covered though and someone mentioned that the water was a bit too fast on that day. At least they are spread out instead… Continue reading So Many People Fishing on Vedder River

Beautiful Day for a Walk

It was such a beautiful morning that I decided to head over to the Vedder River trail to walk. I usually avoid weekend walking since the trails can be busy, but thought I would go anyway. The fisher men & women were sure out in full force. As usual, I talked to a few people… Continue reading Beautiful Day for a Walk
