WORDLESS WEDNESDAY - Feb 1960, Down in Stanley Park

Oh, I'm so grown-up - with my nice coat and purse, walking through the pathways and trails in 1,000 acre Stanley Park, a peninsula park of Vancouver BC Canada, all by myself, aged almost 17 years old. 1960 - the beginning of a very challenging uplifting decade in Canada, (and in the States).

The stone carving on the left, facing me, is of Pauline Johnson - click on the link to learn more about this fascinating poet.

I had a passing person take the photo of me, so I'd have a momento.

Welcome!

Family, friends, and others - I hope you enjoy these pages about our ancestors and their lives. Genealogy has become somewhat of an obsession, more than a hobby, and definitely a wonderful mystery to dig into and discover. Enjoy my writing, and contact me at celia.winky at gmail dot com if you have anything to add to the stories. ... Celia Lewis
