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,

Bubble boy and Balcony view on our Alaska cruise

During our Alaska cruise, we also enjoy beautiful scenery along the White Summit Pass, Carcross  in the Yukon as well as a wild dog sled ride.  The wooden train took us up the Summit Pass and the bus met us up in Fraser, BC.  Nothing in Fraser except buildings of the Border Patrol Guards.  I was very surprised to learn this.  Across from the boder crossing into Canada, the lake and mountain view was stunning.  In fact, almost all the scenery was beyond words.  I kept saying to the kids, OMG, and they'd say it back and we were always saying "look at that" or "Layla did you get that picture"?  What an amazing cruise and I am so glad we had the opportunity to take an Alaska cruise.  Getting to the Yukon was an extra bonus.  I didn't know that we would be going to the Yukon where the dogsled ride was.

We were very fortunate that I upgraded to the large balcony suite.  It was a huge room, with a power room and good size bathroom.  We also had a jet tub & shower.  Little Rialey had a bubble bath where it became a bubble room!  He quietly said to me, "Nan, I think I got too many bubbles".  When I went into the bathroom, the entire tub and him were covered in big white bubbles which were flowing over unto the floor.  Of course, both me and Layla had to take pictures of this very cute event.  He didn't mean to make this mess but it was a great photo op for us.

Here are some pictures of the tub, some scenery and our huge balcony.

This was a monster of a balcony. We really love it.

Here's little bubble boy himself!
He was completely surrounded by bubbles.

Do I even need a caption here?
Sis was trying to water him down, but he wasn't going for it!

This amazing view was scene from our balcony.  It was almost too much. What incredible beauty this rugged land has.

I had to save this one to my desktop.
The one thing Alaska has is lots of waterfalls from the Glaciers.

Here is an excellent picture of the scenic view from our balcony. It's breathtaking!

I took this picture while lying on the bed.  We were blessed to see such wonderful sites of nature.
I took more of these pictures on closeup.  Beautiful Alaska.
