- 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.

Saturday Photo Hunters - VIEW
It's the weekend again already and today's theme is "View." Gee, of all the photos I have of views it took me a while to decide which one to use. I happen to like this shot I took back in early November, 2006, when in Segesta, Sicily. We trudged up a hill (you can see the path we trod in the photo) to view this Grecian temple and later took a bus up the side of the mountain to view the amphitheater and other ancient sites. From that vantage point I could see the Sicilian landscape and the highway snaking away into the distance. Stunning! But then on the way back down the hill, I managed to get this shot of the temple from above (with the bus bumping its way down). It doesn't show the immensity of its size, so I've added a smaller shot that shows a friend sitting by one of the pillars. Be sure to click on the photos to see them in a larger format.
