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,

Royal Resorts Vacation is calling YOU!


Hi Folks!

Did you ever want to take a vacation where you just "took off" and packed your suitcase and called a taxi to take you to the airport?  Well you need to do that at least once in your life!  I have the perfect place for you to go, the Royal Resorts in Cancun! One of the safest, warmest, luxurious resorts where you can nestle your toes in the beautiful white sand or the azure clear water.

Yes, it can be that easily.  Tomorrow is really not promised to you and sometimes we just have to take advantage of opportunities when they come our way.

The Royal Resorts in Cancun is just the resort I was talking about.  It is that "you" time to sit back and relax and let the stress out.  Lots to do (if you want to), historic town and lots of adventures.

I read some of the reviews on the various Royal Resorts.  Almost all the reviews were good, some not so good, but most were really good.  Before I ever travel, I always read many reviews.  I know some hotels don't always get the best ratings, but I review everyone's comments and look on Google Map to find the location and and news for the place I want to travel to.  Safety for me is a BIG factor and Cancun and Cabo are super safe.  I just returned from Cabo San Lucas in March with the kids.  We had a fabulous time!  What a beautiful vacation.  The Mexican people are so friendly and helpful. The moment we landed in Cabo, we fell in love with Mexico.

The beauty of Mexico is the people and places that you visit. We all want the best vacations when we travel, memories to cherish with lots of pictures.  So don't do what we did in Barcelona, I bought a camera that didn't work properly and we missed so many wonderful pictures. Check and recheck if you power cords, batteries, plug-ins and video SD cards.  You will have a incredible time if all checks are clicked.  Little Rialey likes to make a check list and check each thing off when we put the item in our suitcase.  Layla is the one who likes to take pictures (she thinks like a photographer).  I love taking pictures and sometimes they don't all come out good, but at least I try.
Weekend Recommendations: Xcaret Park

For a fun family day trip, don't miss Xcaret. A majestic park by the sea, where you can find unique activities while you have fun discovering the natural and cultural richness of Mexico.
