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,

Delta PEI, The BEST Delta Yet!

The Delta PEI hotel was one of my best experiences yet with all the Delta hotels I've stayed in.

I have been very busy the last two months travelling and couldn't really post new reads.  One of my travels took me to the Delta PEI and the moment I got to the counter for check in, I was met by the best service agent yet.  Maureen is the most incredible front desk agent.  She recognized a weary traveller from the get go and when I asked to be on the Signature floor, she said they didn't have one but she had something even better for me.

She upgraded me to a wonderful room with a jacuzzi.  It was big, pink and awesome!  My bed was a king size bed and so comfortable with wonderful bedding and pillows.  I was facing the water with lovely wide window seats.  I had an eating area and living room area.  I realized that I forgot my swim suit but I had the most wonderful night in my jacuzzi.  I felt pampered and I was!

The room service was outstanding and the dining room food and service was wonderful!  For lunch, I ate a homemade chicken salad sandwich and the Chef came out to me to see exactly how I wanted it made.  He had a different version of what it would have looked like than I had so I am glad he came out.   He told me he was originally from BC and he started out on a many country travel expedition.  However, his first stop was PEI and he fell in love and never did any of the other countries.  He hopes to in the future.  I said once an Island girl, always an Island girl.  We had a great chat and he made me a lovely sandwich.   Later, I had the fortunate incidents to meet the Chef's little girl.  She was the prettiest little girl I ever met!  She was lovely.  I had a dinner meeting with two people and we ate the buffet.  I enjoyed the Christmas Turkey Dinner, always my favourite.  My room service was a Delta club with real chicken and it was really good.

My favourite Delta hotels in the Atlantic are:

Delta PEI
Delta Saint John, the service agents here are wonderful as well.
Delta Sydney, but I believe they have now changed owners and name
Delta St. John's, NL
Delta Beausejour, Moncton
I have not had the pleasure of staying at the Delta Halifax as yet.  I hope to one day.

I've taken some pictures for you all to enjoy the scenery of the hotel, the room and my jacuzzi.  Thanks to all my wonderful followers and all my new followers and I wish you all the very merriest of New Year for 2013!

I really enjoyed sitting here and watching the boats and water.
