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...


Hi Folks! My daughter and her new husband went to their 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. 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.

So looking forward to the summer with fresh air & warm summer nights. Spring here is pretty good too.

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.

Thanks friends,

Yukon's border and beauty

Hi Folks. 

I can't even begin to tell you of our adventure up the White Trail Pass by train.  I've been told it was amazing, but to actually see it... it is incredible!  Even with all the pictures we took I don't think anything could capture the essence of the beauty we saw. 

Once we got to Fraser, BC, we had to get out for border crossing security.  There is NOTHING in Fraser except the border guards and their housing.  However, they are across from a beautiful view, a lake with snowy cap mountains.

The scenes along the way were breathtaking!  I just couldn't imagine that they were real.  I heard that Alaska and the Yukon were beautiful but until you actually go, you have not idea.  During our trip up the White Travel Pass, the scenery was so incredible.  Layla stayed outside at the back of the train because we were in the last car.  Lucky for us.  We were able to capture some incredible pictures, which I'll post by itself because the scenery deserves its' own post.
Water turns green from all the iron which flows down from the mountains.  I couldn't believe the colour.
This is all there is to Fraser with the exception of the Train station bathrooms. A pit stop we all needed.
This is the bathroom station.
Here is my little guy Rialey in Fraser, BC.

Layla is showing the beauty across from the border crossing.
The sun is glistening off the camera as we take this lovely photo at the border in Fraser.
This is the train we got off at Fraser so we can get back on our bus for our Yukon adventure!

The train station is the bathroom for the many travelers who get off the bus or who are driving through.  Once we got off the train and had our bathroom break, took a few pictures, we got on our original bus from Skagway.  We had a really awesome guide.  He always tried to 'beat' the big tour buses so we could enjoy our stops along the way to our dogsled tour in the Yukon.

If you can get to the Yukon, please do it.  It is worth the time, travel and cost.  Be careful of the guide you choose.  Our tour was 8 hours which included the train, the bus before and after the train, all the pit stops along the way and the dog sled ride, which was incredible!  It even included a delicious BBQ lunch.  We ate ours in the covered wagon while others ate inside the restaurant area.  They even had little shops and animals to pat.
Hope you enjoy my little post here and for your patience while waiting for me to post all my various parts of our amazing trip to Alaska and Yukon.
