- 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.

Speaking of Eyes
I can't believe it! I just checked the Telus Photo Contest and my photograph of a street artist in Florence tied for 8th place! I'd never entered a contest like this before so I entered two photographs. I really thought my other entry was a better picture, but it did not receive one vote. The next photos I entered were of the fountains in Lerici and sunset over the Isle of Capri. Your thoughts on these would be appreciated. (The theme was "Water.") People are now voting on the "water" photos. If you'd like to vote, you must register at http://photos.globetrotter.net/inscription_1.asp?lang=en
Right now, the theme is "Bridges," so I entered this one just today. I took it one sunny autumn day when friends took me on my first geocaching hunt. I remember thinking "What a beautiful scene. I must take a quick shot." Maybe I'll go wandering and take more photos since I feel like a winner right now. I've always wanted to get into photography and maybe - just maybe - I have an eye for it. (I have been told that I do.)
