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! My daughter and her new husband went to their 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. 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.

So looking forward to the summer with fresh air & warm summer nights. Spring here is pretty good too.

Still 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.

I have so many posts to write about so please keep patience with me. I received a great posting from which looks to be a great animal site. Hope you enjoy it.

Thanks friends,

Pictures of Newfoundland July 2010

Hey folk, I thought the pictures of this beautiful province needed to be blogged by itself.  Some pictures were taken from my room at the Sheridan Hotel and the rest were taken by my granddaughter when she went on a lighthouse tour and picnic about an hour outside of St. John's.


The pictures are of St. John's harbour.  The moon was full this night and I was able to capture it.  It was a magical night in July 2010. The serene brought me to think of the small castle on Signal Hill that the first transatlantic message was sent from.  You can see it on tip of the mountain.  Below to the left of Signal Hill is the Battery Hotel.  It is a historic hotel but has many upgrades.

St. John's is such a beautiful place with old, large mansions, jelly bean houses and quaint small streets.  The famous George Street host a street concert in the Summer.  This year, Great Big Sea entertained the people while the bar hopping was happening.  This is an excellent time to visit.

The next group of pictures were taken by Layla while on their tour of the historic lighthouse.  Enjoy.

The above picture is the jelly bean houses on the side of Signal Hill.  But as you ride around St. John's, you will see lots of different jelly bean houses.  They call them this due to their colourful jelly bean colours.

I have more pictures on the lighthouse and other scenes which I will put at another time.
