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.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

I'm off this morning with 3 girlfriends (Cathy, Irene, & Eileen) to a cabin at the base of Mount Baker, Washington. Three whole days of rest, relaxation, and chat. We're taking junk food (popcorn & Munchies) and some old videos to watch if we run out of things to talk about. I've never been to this particular place before so it'll be interesting to see if there are enough photo ops for me. We plan on doing some hiking, some swimming, and lots of eating! I'm hoping to take lots and lots of photos and NOT of any bears charging me...hear that, David??? So stay tuned for the further adventures of Moi et Amies.

Our home base in the States is near Mt. Baker. In fact, our place in on a street called Bakerview Road. On a clear day (in the fall when the leaves are gone) we can even see Mt. Baker from our balcony. Sounds like fun staying in a cabin even closer to the big mountain. Way before we came to live up here, Wayne and I would go to the Abbotsford Airshow. I always remember the Snowbirds entering for their aerial display with Mt. Baker in the background. - Margy
