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.

For a pleasant stroll by the sea GARY POINT is the place to be! It can be quite windy here, so you might want to bring a kite and join in the fun.  This 39 acre waterfront park is at the mouth of the Fraser River, close to Steveston Village, and where you can get great fish and chips and frozen yogurt! It's one of our favourite spots to take our chairs on a sunny day in any season and read, wander and take photos, or just simply relax and take in the scenery and people watch.  A few photos from there will hopefully give you a taste of the peace and tranquility there.

NOTE:  I'm currently in Yorkshire and have met the FABULOUS Mrs. Nesbitt, who welcomed me and my friend Cathy with fresh eggs!  Had them for dinner last night with bacon and a bap (the eggs,  not the hens or Denise!)

Leslie--you have it all in one place at Gary Point. The mountains in the background with the water and flowers is just beautiful. Would love to visit your lovely country.
