A Favorite Thing......a museum visit.

Last Saturday afternoon.................

....we pulled on boots and parkas (I seem to have been doing 
this often lately - especially while in Antarctica 
last month!), left the warmth of home........

.......and headed into town to view the Titanic Exhibition.

We'd seen it before some years ago when 
vacationing in Victoria, British Columbia 
taking our granddaughter along that time. 

This time we took our sweet next door neighbor Raya - a 
second grader who seemed to know more about the Titanic 
than we did........and did a fantastic job reading the 
signage to us. 
Way to go sweet smart girl.

And this Saturday?
Intentions were to go see the movie "Quartet" BUT
I'm home all snuggled up and nursing a 
beastly head cold and no voice with hot tea, 
soup, and chocolate of course........and 
watching season 2 of Homeland while the 
rain falls steadily.

Linking to Claudia over at Mockingbird Hill Cottage for 
A Favorite Thing Saturday......a fun place to take 
a little break during your day......if you 
can't get to a museum or a movie theatre.


  1. I'm so sorry you're under the weather. Stay cozy. Hubby and daughter absolutely love Homeland.


  2. Oh, no! Sorry to hear you're feeling under the weather, Mary! I've never seen the Titanic Exhibition but I bet it would extremely interesting. After all, there's such a fascination with that terrible tragedy.

    Watch Homeland and take care of yourself. We haven't seen any of that series yet. But then again, we haven't seen Downton Abbey either!

    Thanks so much for joining in this week!


  3. Exhibit must be fascinating. Get well!

  4. I hope you're feeling better soon but it's nice to be able to stay indoors and cozy up with tea and a book or favourite show too. Hugs, Pamela

  5. Get well soon. Sounds very cozy at your house. We haven't watched Homeland, but intend to watch it later.

  6. sorry you have a head cold! But that is a wise move to stay in and read a good book!

    As always your photos are amazing!


  7. So sorry to read you are under the weather Mary. Stay snug and warm and dose up on honey and lemon to put you right.
    The Titanic Exhibition sounds interesting, glad you enjoyed it so :o

  8. Now I am wondering if this show will come to Portland. I would love seeing it. Take care of yourself, dear friend, and be well soon.

  9. Loved your comment about putting in your warm least you are prepared.
    You sure have a wonderful banner with all those Penquins

  10. The Titanic was at our local museum this summer. It was fascinating but very eerie. Especially when given a card with one of the passengers names along with their family members. The sad part is when you find out at the end whether your family lived or died. Very sad tragic event and seeing some of the artifacts made it very real. Hope you're feeling better soon.

  11. We saw the Titanic exhibit here in Victoria, too! I found it fascinating and wouldn't mind seeing it again.
    So sorry you are under the weather. I hope you soon feel better. Hot tea, chocolate and staying cozy are a great prescription.

  12. Mary, I'm sorry you are fighting a head cold. Not fun! Take care and get better soon.
    Thanks for stopping by for a visit. So good to hear form you! I very much enjoyed being an armchair traveler on your recent trip. Amazing photos as always.
    Take care, dear one. ~ Sarah

  13. I hope you feel better soon. I would love to see the Titanic Museum - very interesting stuff!

  14. Oh Mary, I wish I could parcel up some NZ sunbeams and send them your way!
    You're in a good place with life's necessities at your fingertips!!
    The Titanic exhibition would have been so interesting - horrific as it was - it happened at such a fascinating time in history, I would love to see the collection of artifacts.

    YOU will absolutely adore "Quartet"!!! I don't usually buy DVD's of films I've seen but this is a classic and I could watch it over again. I loved everything about it and I've already booked my room at Beecham House!

  15. Fabulous sugarbowl! Glad you got to see the Titanic exhibit. Hope you are over your head cold by now! I am a little late getting to your posts...may take me a day or two to catch up!


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
