My First Video Uploaded to Flickr

Last week Rae and I went to my friends cabin at Winnipeg Beach for the third consecutive year. What began as coincidence, by the third visit, has become an annual tradition. We arrived on Thursday night and were welcomed by high winds. After a dinner with Jamie and his Mom at an Italian restaurant (can't remember the name of it but their Penne al Diavlo with Italian sausage was incredible), we took a walk down to the beach front to find that the beach was gone. It's quite dark, but the video shows just how ferocious Lake Winnipeg was that evening.

Canaday Day at the Downs

Canada Day at the Downs
Last week I spent Canada Day with Rae and a few friends at the Assiniboine Downs. Lost more than I won but it was a beautiful day spent with good friends and I had the opportunity to see Canada's rarest race horse (pictured above and below). This horse is rare due to it's amazing, steel blue, coloured eyes and that it is the only one of it's kind that is also a registered race horse. These picture don't do justice to just how striking this animals eyes look.

Lute player
Manitoba's finest sculptor passed away last Saturday. Leo Mol died at age 94 leaving behind an impressive collection of sculpture on display at the Assiniboine Park, Leo Mol Sculpture Garden.

I have enjoyed photographing his sculptures that can be seen on my Flickr account here.
