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,

Country Inn and Suites, New Glasgow, Nova Scotia

I promised to get more of my many pictures and blogs posted and here is one of them.

During a visit to New Glasgow Nova Scotia in October, I stayed at the Country Inn and Suites.  I have stayed here many times over the years.  Each time I go, I love it.  The decor is so warm and inviting; the available kitchen is open for tea or coffee and night time treats for those guests who need that late night snack.  The treats are usually homemade cookies or muffins.  After travelling for hundreds of miles, it is a nice break to just rela and enjoy the tea and a treat. 

The breakfast they offer free of charge, is a hot breakfast like scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon and home made muffins, cookies, yogurt, to name a few.  The breakfast setting is in a very homey environment and the warmth the atmosphere brings the guests, is as close to home as possible.

The staff is so friendly and helpful.  Whether you need something in the night or when you check in, they are always there to lend a helpful hand.

The bedroom furniture is very "country" like and the beds are really comfortable.  It is very much like a country Inn.  They have free wireless and anything that is free is a plus for the guests.

If you ever get a chance to stay at a Country Inn and Suites place, do so, I think you will enjoy your stay very much.
