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

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,
