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,

Villa del Palmar in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

From the moment the plane landed, we all fell in love with Mexico but when we saw Cabo, we really just wanted to move on down!! It reminded me of a real cowboy movie with the cactus and the mountains and real desert, not like Nevada.

The hour ride to the resort was so interesting as we watched all the different types of scenery. It is so different from what we in the east are use to. When we came to the hotel, it was beautiful but the little guy Rialey said, "what's so special about that?". Out of the mouth of babes. The floors were marble and the centre of the resort was squared and empty because the floors surrounded the building and looked down at most of the front floor of the resort.

Our room was awesome! So Spanish and we loved it. We decided to take the room with the view of the Sea of Cortez and Lands End rocks. So breathtaking! We couldn't imagine we could have gotten such a beautiful room with such a awesome view. The only picture I have downloaded so far is from our balcony so please enjoy!
I have lots more to say about our Cabo trip so please stay tuned.  Pictures by Debbie Kelly.

How beautiful is this to wake up to each morning? Our view from Villa del Palmar in Cabo
during a beautiful sunset night.  It really looked like this.   It is the actual colour of the sky at this sunset. Awesome!
