About Me

I remember interrupting my mother in my lamenting teenage voice saying,

 “Oh, Mom, you’ve already told me that story.”

Then, off her lips came her quick automatic response,

“Well, I’m going to tell you again.”

It came to be a predictable exchange I grew to know all to well.

Whether listening to my mother at the kitchen table helping with my homework, the backseat of our station wagon or oftentimes at a relative’s home exchanging gossip, little did I realize those stories would stick with me for a lifetime. The places I’m going to tell you about might be like those old well told stories you may already know.

Maybe the apple does indeed not fall far the tree.

We all have our favourite places we like to visit and tell other people about. Our experiences don’t need to be headline news. Our little stories can influence our mental wellbeing, bring a little smile or laugh to someone’s day. They only need to be a conversation starter with a friend. Sometimes the best stories are those shared from vastly different life circumstances.

I created this blog for the joy and satisfaction from learning a new after retirement skill. The local points of interest I share with you are from my personal point of view and I draw from these experiences for my blog content.

Follow me on a day trip destination for your first time or revisit a familiar one from a new perspective.
