About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

ALASKA


With all the talk from RR today of the possibility of a cruise to Alaska, I thought I'd share some photos taken last summer. It was my first cruise ever and I swore I'd do it again. Absolutely LOVED it! The photos may not be that clear but I was using an old Ricoh TF-900 (on telephoto a lot). Enjoy and may it encourage others to sign up to go. This picture is at White Pass Summit - border between Alaska/British Columbia. We had travelled up the mountainside via replica coaches pulled by vintage diesel locomotives. We passed the Gold Rush cemetery, several waterfalls, went through Tunnel Mtn, over a steel bridge (scary!) and past Dead Horse Gulch.

Hi Leslie,

Love your plog. Your quick too, having just read the RR blog and your comment about posting photos of your Alaska cruise. Where is the link to the photos (or are you still working on them)? I have a cocker, too.

Totally agree that Alaska is a beautiful place. I've never taken an inside passage cruise, but would love to do so! What I liked about Alaska was their laid-back attitude and, even in Anchorage, their "small town charm". Have you heard of the book, "If you lived here I'd know your name" ? Sorry I can't remember the author, but it's all about the small town feel to Alaskan towns. Thanks for sharing your pics. I have just GOT to get set up to have my pics on computer so I can properly do this. It's just so much fun!

Sorry ladies, but I've been trying and trying to get more pics up and haven't been too successful. It's either my server or the photos are too big. I'm making sure the pics are smaller and will keep on trying.
