While wandering around the beach on the Island of Roatan I decided to make friends with a turtle and a shark.† My, oh my, that Shark had one big mouth!

I look pretty good in my sombrero (hat) donít you think so?† While Granny was shopping I decided to take a ride.† No one wanted to tell me the alligator was not real!

How funÖ they did Josting and were all dressed in midevil time clothing. Shooting bow and arrows.† I am sitting on the wall where you see the orange X.† It was a little scarey up that high up here on the top of the turret!

October 2011, I was lucky enough to go with a family friend to Egypt, Israel and Jordan.† We were gone 13 days. I rode a camel for a few minutes then fell into the sand!† I brushed myself off and they through me back on!!!† The pyramids were awesome, I swam in the Red Sea without turning orange.† I was baptized in the River Jordan and on our last day the Chef at the hotel surprised me with a cute omelet, looks just like me , donít you think so?† What an adventure this was.

I arrived at a Caribbean Island and waddled ashore. It was my birthday so I was pretty happy duck.† When I got to the little shops at the end of the dock, what did appear but a BIG objects with candles on top!

How did they know it was my Birthday?

We spent the week in Pensacola, Florida while Granny did 2 book readings and signings.† Our friend Diane surprised us with a

night at the ball park.† I dressed for the occasion and we enjoyed the evening.† It was the first time I ever saw fireworks!
