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,

Mendenhall Glacier July 2013

Hi Folks!

So many incredible pictures just from this amazing Glacier, Mendenhall.  I'll share some of the pictures here.  I sent a few to my friends and they were amazed by the quality of the pictures.  Some thought they were paintings.

My new Canon Camera is wonderful and so much better than the Nikon 6200 I had, which was the 2nd one I exchanged for.  Nikon still had the same problems with picture taking.  If the flash wasn't on, then the shutter was slow to take the picture and sometimes wouldn't even click and we lost many pictures in Egypt, Turkey and Rome.  Our pictures even in Spain were very blurry at times.

Now that I have this new wonderful Canon camera, all my pictures are just about perfect, unless I moved the camera to make the picture blurry.

The Mendenhall is one of the Glaciers of the North that has receeded so much with Global Warming.  The Glacier use to be so much more into the water.  People who saw this Glacier before mentioned to us how much bigger it use to be.
I have so many more to post from this area and more so stay tuned.

I hope you enjoy these incredible pictures along with our many adventures!
The first picture is what we saw when the bus pulled up.  Our eyes opened so wide and we were so excited! It was our very first Glacier sighting in person.  WOW, it is amazing to see.

This is our first glance at the Mendalhall Glacier.  This is the 1st time we have ever seen a Glacier in person.

WOW, the Glacier is Blue! I never knew this!  We were so excited!

We took this picture of the Mendenhall Glacier from the view area.

Here is the Glacier cave up close.  I wonder what is in it?

Amazing Mendenhall Glacier with the snow on top. WOW!

Layla capturing the Mendenhall Glacier with wonder. How beautiful it is!

This is one of my favourites. You can see how much the little guy Rialey has grown and almost taller than his sis.

Another lovely view of the Glacier & the water fall is on the right of the picture.

Rialey wanted to point out the Glacier too so we took this picture to prove he was here.

You can really see the blue of the Glacier here in this closeup. AMAZING!

This picture did a better job of capturing the Glacier, the Mendenhall Glacier and the waterfall on the right.

This is a fabulous close of of the Mendenhall Glacier with the Glacier cave on the bottom.
