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.

U is for UNDER

 In English, the word "under" is used as a preposition and has several meanings.  It could mean "in a lower level," "less than," "below the surface of," "as a subject of," or figuratively "in the face of; in response to (some attacking force).

Since it was the first word I thought of when I was considering what to do for our U week, I went through my photos to see what I could find that related to the word under.  I found quite a few and put together my weekly slideshow set to the music "Almost Paradise."  Please enjoy, but before you do, let's remember the unequalled Mrs. Nesbitt for creating ABC Wednesday and the ubiquitous Roger for all he does by administering the site.  Also, remember the united team that does its utmost to visit everyone each week.  Now turn up your sound and enjoy the show.

I went through the comments as the video is not playing on my computer (will have to move to another computer) but a half a minute and saw the bridge with some stream under it. Loved it.
