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...

BLOG POST OF THE MONTH: Sept 20, 2016

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,

Debbie

Icebergs in St. Anthony, Newfoundland/Labrador, Canada

Icebergs are not something many of us see everyday while casually looking out the kitchen window doing the dinner dishes or glancing out the upstairs window as you pass by.  But to see ice bergs in summer... well for the rest of the world, this seems unbelieavable!  It's true... the residents in St. Anthony have this as a common site.  Many other places up north certainly see the beautiful icebergs as the lumber by, seemingly in no hurry with no particular place to go except to eventually melt away....
A friend who lives in St. Anthony just sent me these pictures and I wanted to share them with all of you!  I was imagining what it would be like being a polar bear who depends on icebergs as part of their everyday living.  Our Eco system and global warming is a stark reminder when we see such chunks of these incredible icebergs floating in our back yards. 

The Titanic iceberg must have been incredible!  The beauty and horror at the same time. While we can sit back and enjoy these wondrous sites, I humbly think of the many people who lost their lives due to icebergs and pray that we can keep these beauties at bay while travelling safely on our way.  Please enjoy!

These pictures were taken in the coves and bays in Goose Cove, a small community just outside of St. Anthony.











Now you can say you've seen an icebergs straight from St. Anthony, Newfoundland/Labrador.
