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

Halifax Harbour with the kids

During a summer a few years back, I took the kids to the Halifax Waterfront to enjoy the Boardwalk, ice cream, beaver tails ( so delicious!) and to play on the Big Wave.  It's a rock that kids climb up on (very slippery) and when the get to the top, they do the "I've made it" wave.

Afterward walking, eating and playing, we took a ride on the Harbour Hopper.  It's a large type of bus ride that also doubles as a ship.  So after we toured our own city and heard some of the highlights of history, our bus suddenly went into Halifax Harbour and gave us a lovely boat ride of our harbour.  Many of my pictures didn't turn out so well, but I hope these pictures give you a little taste of my lovely city, Halifax, one of our bridges, the MacDonald bridge and the small George's Island with the lighthouse.  Many tourist visit Halifax for our Historic properties, our board walk and our history.

I hope you enjoy it as well.


Our Sea Gulls are not afraid and come quite close for pictures
The silvery buildings are Purdy's Wharf Bldgs.


Looking down the Harbour, you can see George's Island in the distance on the left

Looking up the Harbour, the building on the left is the Summit Bldg where they held the G7 Summit

I think I took great pictures of these seagulls

Across the harbour is Imperial Oil (Esso) Refinery
