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.

N is for NORTH TRAIL


I think some of you are probably getting sick of looking at slideshows of my new puppy, Tegan.  Then again, I'm getting lots of nice comments about how cute she is and how much she's growing.  Also, most of my life right now is caught up in taking care of her - feeding her, cleaning up after her, washing her bedding, taking her for walks, going to the Vet for checkups, disciplining her, and teaching her.  *Sigh* Oh, and don't forget bathing her (and then sanitizing the tub afterwards!) Seems I'm the mother of a new baby again!

Since there are lots of dog lovers out there, I continue this week with an outing we had at the North Trail in Ladner, BC.  While showing off (yes, I admit it!) my puppy, I'm also showing you my neighbourhood, which is a natural spot for great photos!  While wandering along the numerous trails around here, I've discovered that although I feel as if I were in the wilderness, I'm usually only steps away from houses, shops, and other businesses. So on that note, I give you my 4 3/4 month-old yellow Lab puppy Tegan enjoying her outing in nature. And notice that she is careful to use "N" words during her commentary.
