- 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.

CHERRY BLOSSOM FESTIVAL
After a miserable winter here in Vancouver, BC, we look forward to the annual Cherry Blossom Festival. Everywhere you look, these trees are beginning to bloom. The various shades of pink contrasting with the bright blue sky uplift the spirits of Vancouverites who are tired of the dismal grey gloom. With heads high and cheeks rosy with excitement for summer just around the corner, we gasp with admiration and realize that all the rain was worth it. Next Saturday, my good friend Josie and I will have our fill of the sight and smell of these bounteous blossoms. I plan on taking my camera and will try to capture the beauty of beaches and boulevards lined with these fabulous cherry trees. Stay tuned.
