My many adventures

Hi Folks, sorry I deleted my paragraph where I tell you all about all the places I've been to.
I'm blessed since surviving breast cancer, to travel around the world to some of the many places I've always wanted to go. There are lots more places I want to visit.
I've been to Scotland, England, Victoria BC, an Alaskan cruise, a fab Mediterranean cruise which took us to Barcelona, the Vatican & Rome, the island of Crete, Izmir & SulcukEphesus Turkey, Egypt and Malta. I have been to Las Vegas, Hollywood LA, Cabo San Lucas, Orlando, Daytona Beach, Tampa, a Disney Cruise to Bahamas and Disney's Castaway Cay island, all over Canada and Hawaii and Pearl Harbour. We can add Cozumel, Costa Maya, Mexico, Belize City and Honduras. What a fabulous way to see the world!
Take the time to do the things you want to do because life is too short and if you wait until you can afford it, you'll likely never go. So get your plans ready and pick a place and start booking your trip. It is so worth it.
Thanks for dropping by. I have lots of posts to put up so stay tuned...


Hi Folks! I have been away from posting because my 40 year old daughter finally got married Aug 27th 2016. It was tiring but the wedding was wonderful and very happy in the end. I sent them on a beautiful honeymoon to Calabogie Lodge in Ontario. The resort was all wood interior with two bedrooms and the master suite with a bed so big. Apparently when the drove back home to Halifax, they started arguing and it lasted all the way over four provinces. Now she feels the argument wasn't so bad. Glad they enjoyed their first vacation ever! His brother loaned them his BMW which drove like a dream.

I still have a great deal of travel posts to put up. I want our vacations and travel to be shared with you all. I'm not sure of what our travel plans will be for 2017, but for 2016, I rested all the time. Retirement is so awesome!! I was able to take pictures of the summer's Totally Eclipse of the Moom, which I'll share with you here on a post. It was incredible for sure.

I had my annual cancer check up and everything was great! It makes me so happy unfortunately, my doctor had to retire due to illness and I am trying to get a family doctor. It is horrible when you don't have someone who looks after you and knows you.

We had a fabulous summer with little rain, although the farmers and rural residents were not too happy. Some people had to pay for water since their wells went dry. This rainless weather is not something we experience so it was a little frightening.

I've been busy trying to find my ancesters with the Foran/Forhan name. Apparently two brothers came over from Dublin, one was name Edward who had a son named Edward born in Prince Edward Island and he had a son named William who had my father. I love doing ancestry but it is very frustrating when you can get no further without the "parents" names.

Well, be on the look out for my various posts. I also have a few products I want to write about as well.
Thanks friends,

dinner in PEI

Well, I just returned from a Pub in PEI with good and bad reviews.  It was a lovely place called Rum Runners near the Delta hotel.  The inside was historic and I loved the layout.  The waiter was a very friendly young person, who did everything to accommodate me.  I ordered the fish and chips, but the fish seemed overly cooked so I asked if I could have another less cooked.  He said he'd ask the cook.  I also asked if the fries could be exchanged for Sweet Potato Fries and he said he would see.  He returned with the warmest, nicest small loaf of bread with cheese on top and what an enjoyment!  I never tasted any bread better.  They get it everyday from a local bakery.  I enjoyed the warm bread until he returned with my meal.  This time, the fish was barely cooked, since the cook was trying to please me, but it still was not up to par for me.  I'm use to some really good fish, like in Newfoundland.  They gave me the sweet potato fries for my troubles.  So I sat and enjoyed the rest of my meal while sipping my warm tea.  All in all, I have to say the trouble over my fish was small in comparison to the enjoyment of the establishment and the waiter and the rest of my meal.  A friend said their ribs were excellent, but I can' comment since I haven't tried them.  Happy eating!!
