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.

My World Tuesday - Captain's Cove Marina

Usually I post my "MWT" on my other blog (Photologue), but I thought I'd put it here on my regular blog this week. Some of you might be wondering where I disappeared to (or not), but if you scroll down and read a bit of previous posts, you'll find that I had major (and I mean MAJOR) back surgery on Jan. 6th. Complications caused me to have to return to the hospital for another week and now I'm finally home and trying to get back to real life. Well, actually, that's not gonna happen anytime soon since in the last couple of days I've graduated to walking without the "granny walker." But...yesterday, my sweetie took me for a little drive to one of the local marinas and I hobbled out to take a few photos of a dreary February morning along the river. Hope you enjoy...

I like the winter emptiness of the marina. Looks like a nice time to get out after being cooped up so much!

Marites said...

Nice pictures and it's obvious that it's still cold out there. Get well soon, Leslie.
