My many adventures

Hi Folks, I want to dedicate this first part to all the Houston people and now the Florida folks who were and are in the path of dangerous hurricanes. I pray for you, your family and your pets to get through this terrible time in your life. Some countries all around the world are facing flooding, mud slides and war, please send help, relief and prayers their way.

I survived 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 still want to visit.

I've been to Scotland, England, Vancouver, Victoria BC, an Alaskan cruise, Yukon, Alaska (Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway), a fab Mediterranean cruise which took us to Barcelona, the Vatican & Rome, the island of Crete, Izmir & Sulcuk, Ephesus 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...

BLOG POST OF THE MONTH: September 7, 2017

Hi Folks! My daughter and her new husband have been married one year. WOW that went fast. Was invited to Toronto in July to receive an Honorary Membership award from my union PSAC/USGE. They even brought my grandson up with me. We visited Niagara Falls, CN Tower and went to Medieval Knights dinner theatre. We had such a fabulous time!

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 just love summer! I hope the winter will be gentle to us.

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.

My granddaughter Layla moved back in so now the family is together again for a while. She is a musician and is going to Community College for a Certificate in Music Finance. She also wants to cook for a living because she just loves food and boy can she cook. I wanted to help her to go to Culinary School but we will have to wait to see when she finally makes up her mind.

My little guy Rialey is now 14 and is 6'1 1/2 ". He is so thoughtful of me and helps me a lot.

I really wanted to travel this year but since retirement, the money is too tight. I'll have to save up but I have all those beautiful memories to keep me smiling for now. Thankfully I have posted most here on my blod.

Take care my blogger friends.

Thanks friends,

Magdalen Islands, Quebec

My grandmother, Elizabeth Harris Dickson was born on Entry Island.  She left home young to go to school in PEI.  That's what kids had to do to advance their education.

During my 1995 trip to do a family tree, I took lots of pictures of scenery and of people who are no longer with us.  It is amazing to look back and see so many new family members.

In 2009, I went back with my two sisters and cousin.  We also took great pictures and we were able to get more info because we already knew so much.  I want to share with you all, the magnificant scenery on Entry Island and the main Island.  It is rich in culture, folklore, ancestry and family for me.  Colourful houses, sand castle making, culpture fishermen, Big Hill where many a sheep or cows have fallen off, including a few tourist, sand dunes and beaches.  I'll post more upon my return from my upcoming trip.  I hope you enjoy these incredible pictures:



  1. Beautiful pictures and a wonderful post. Thanks for sharing your thoughts "On Home".

  2. Nice images of Entry Island, a part of Quebec travelers don't often get a chance to see.

    Thanks for sharing your scenic adventures.

    cheers, @hiptraveler

  3. Thank you both for your comments. I have more pictures and will share them later. It is a beautiful place for sure. I'm related to most of the Islands but all on Entry Island. Entry Island is lovely!

  4. There are so many reasons for Prince Edward County to travel over the summer months. But if you're in a 'vacation' state of mind this year, chart a course in a new direction. This summer, make it a PEI vacation.
