Last Stop on the Way Home

After leaving the Captain Kennedy House & Gardens, I continued along River Road until I got to the highway that turns into Main Street as we head back to Winnipeg. Right on Main Street is Kildonan Park, so I had to turn into there. 😉 First stop (well the only stop, since I walked to… Continue reading Last Stop on the Way Home

A Walk in the Assiniboine Park Zoo

After leaving the Gardens at the Leaf, I headed back to my car, which I had left parked in the zoo parking lot. At that point, I thought I should head into the zoo. I haven’t wandered in the zoo with my camera for some time. Many of you know that I volunteer in the… Continue reading A Walk in the Assiniboine Park Zoo

Back to Fort Whyte Alive

It has been awhile since my last visit to Fort Whyte Alive, so this morning it was time to head back there. It is much quieter than during breeding season, but at this time of year that is normal. There were still plenty of photo opportunities. It was a nice morning for a walk –… Continue reading Back to Fort Whyte Alive

Kildonan Park – Last Stop of the Day

I headed back to Winnipeg after stopping at Captain Kennedy House and since I was on Main Street, it was convenient to stop at Kildonan Park for my last stop of the day. I always love to walk through & take photos of the gardens near the beginning of the park. Then I moved over… Continue reading Kildonan Park – Last Stop of the Day

My Walk Along Bunn’s Creek

It was a beautiful morning with temperatures in the low 20’s instead of the hot 30’s we have been getting the last few weeks. I thought Bunn’s Creek might be a good place to walk a bit, so that is where I headed. My plan was to walk all the way from the park along… Continue reading My Walk Along Bunn’s Creek

Dog Dash

I get to stay with Toby, Bowser and Mocha for a few days. These guys can keep me busy! Because Bowser is young and has endless energy, their family has booked a couple of visits with Dog Dash. I had never heard of this company, but now found out that they just started up here… Continue reading Dog Dash

A Day in the Life

Today I got to spend a few hours with my little buddy – Coconut! His family was going to be away for much of the day and as he is aging, he has developed problems with his eyes. He needs regular drops in each eye a few times a day. Of course, I was willing… Continue reading A Day in the Life

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!

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

The Goats of Aunt Sally’s Farm

There are other critters at Aunt Sally’s Farm in the Assiniboine Park Zoo, but the goats are the main attraction and the interaction with the children will be amazing to watch. It is NOT a petting zoo – but the goats will be watching and interacting with all the visitors, especially the children. There are… Continue reading The Goats of Aunt Sally’s Farm
