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,

Land's End in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

One of the most beautiful and interesting sites we saw on this trip was the incredible rocks that our room faced.  It's called Land's End.  During our tour of other resorts, we saw the Pacific side of those rocks.  During our excursions to snorkeling, we were able to take really awesome pictures that I want to share with you all.  They are so beautiful, that I enlarged some to put on my wall.

While on the various boats for tours, we saw lots of seals looking for food from the boats.  They were so friendly.  We saw a whole bunch of pelicans sitting on all the boats in the small marina.  Some slept with their long beaks across their backs.  The Mexicans call these birds Mexican Chickens.  We laughed so hard.  The kids had a great time snorkeling.  Later that day we got in the water boat then transferred to another boat then another to get on the boat for our para sailing.  The kids were excited.  What a great time they had.  The boat bumped up and down like crazy and the kids said that while up in the para sail, they felt so calm and the world so quiet.  It was a wonderful last day.  I could go back again anytime.

The rocks on the pacific side where the various resorts are looked to be made like Flintstone rocks.  They don't look real.  They look light and fluffly but they are real and were here for millions of years.
We saw the resorts where Jennifer Aniston, Oprah and others go.  They either walk on the pacific ocean side or at a more private resort further back on the way the airport.  We loved the cactus plants and the mountains.

The staff at the Villa del Palmar was some of the best.  They are so helpful, professional and will assist with any needs.  They plugged my camera in when I needed it charged because I didn't bring a computer.  They were awesome in every way.  I  bless the maids  because cleaning up after someone day in and day out must  be tiring but they did a fantastic job every time. 

The food at the resort was excellent and we could get food anytime.  If you have the all inclusive, which we did, we enjoyed our meals.  Sometimes the wait was way too long and we did have to complain.  The Food Supervisor felt so bad she sent us up a plate of chocolate covered strawberries and drizzled chocolate around the plate.  The kids both ate the plate!!  It was nice of her to do this.  During dinner, she would come over to see if everything was great for us.

There was a resort bus that took you over to the other resort which we could swim as well.  It was a fabulous trip and we didn't want to come home but more vacations will come.  Enjoy the pictures me,

On the other side is the pacific ocean. These rocks separate the Sea of Cortez from the pacific ocean

These rocks are real but look like Flintstones rocks to me.
