A Walk in the Spring Time

I am getting tired of packing and since it is a beautiful morning, I thought it was a good time to take my walk along the trail behind my complex that runs along the Seine River again. I did find a couple of patches of green, but otherwise, it is mostly various shades of brown.… Continue reading A Walk in the Spring Time

A Walk with Angie & Emily

After I arrived at Vancouver Airport, I picked up my rental car, dug the GPS out of my bag and set it for Angie’s place.  Amazingly enough, I arrived at her place safe & sound without having to have made any detours or adjustments.  I think this may have been the first time that the… Continue reading A Walk with Angie & Emily

As I was returning to the reception area in order to… Continue reading A Break in the Cold Snap – the end

A Break in the Cold Snap – continued

After leaving the Deer back at the reception area I wandered down one of the paths into the woods.  I rounded a corner and saw more Deer at the bird hide (where they are bird feeders).  There were about 5 or 6 of them, but these ones did not make it easy for me to… Continue reading A Break in the Cold Snap – continued
