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.

Where in the World?

I notice that Josie has put up a photo of herself somewhere in our area. So I thought I'd put up mine, too, and even give you a clue.

It was the day after Halloween when Josie spent the night. We had my famous and yummy macaroni and cheese, oven fresh rolls, and salad. Josie had some red wine, but I didn't because I was already humming on prednisone! Dessert was - you guessed it! - Halloween candy that we tossed at each other as we each lay on a sofa in front of the cosy fire!

In the morning, Josie made her famous scrambled eggs au fromage avec des petits oignons rouges and instead of toast we had my homemade (from scratch, I'll have you know) pumpkin loaf. Topped off with fresh coffee and cream, we were sated and ready to head out for the day. And here is where we ended up.

This place is about halfway between where I live and where Josie lives. It's in a completely different city, though. It lies on one of the southern arms of the Fraser River and there tends to be a lot of noise around here. But the noise is an exciting noise and lots of people come to this spot just to watch the skies. So, there you go. Can you guess where we went?

I know, but I'm not going to give it away **giggle** It was a fun weekend, wasn't it? The best part was sneaking some of the ghost and goblins' Halloween candy. *heh*

It would make no sense to guess because I am not familar with BC or where you live! But nonetheless, it is a pretty view.

Heather is right! Well, we weren't actually AT the airport but in the city of Richmond in the Terra Nova area which borders one arm of the Fraser River. It's a perfect spot to watch the airplanes take off and land. To see more photos of the area and a little video, go on over to my Photologue blog and scroll down to That's My World Tuesday. Enjoy!

Oh, and thanks Josie for taking a good picture of me!
