about me

Collector of sand dollars. Adventurer. Writer. Weather girl. Back up singer in a little black dress. Dancer. Poet. Rugby mom. Bond girl. Teacher. Diva. Walker of beaches. Seeker of truth and all things delicious in life.

I live in Victoria, B.C. with my lovely husband and a houseful of boys. (Seriously. Even the dog is a boy).

That’s why I meditate.

    Glad it is working all out for you. All the best every step of the way. Many thanks for stopping by my blog and for the follow.

  2. Glad you are doing well. It is indeed great to realize that there is life after the breakup and that life can be amazing if we dare to try! Best of luck and thanks for sharing snippets of your life! 🙂

    • Sally says:

      And thank you for doing the same! I’m enjoying reading about another woman’s journey. We each have our own path, and so much to learn along the way! Your writing gives me new perspective on my own experience.

  3. Thank you for following my blog! I look forward to learning more about your journey.

  4. Hello Sally!

    My name is Christopher John Taylor, formerly of Victoria BC, now New York. My wife Kate and I run an online entertainment E-magazine, TheBOX. We just launched it on the first of July.

    We are currently looking for writers to submit original content in specific categories like, Film, Television, Fashion and Music as well as Art, Books, Theater, Culture, Food and Travel and to intersperse that original content with our mainstream entertainment based offerings we post daily.

    Thanks to Leslie at Bucket List we came across your work and liked it.

    We’d like to invite you to write some articles for us to enhance both you and your blog’s reputation as well as promoting you as a writer.

    If you’d be interested in this, we’d like to talk further. Please email myself ctaylor@htla973.com or Kate (Editor in Chief) ktaylor@htla973.com and we can set up a talk.

    Looking very much forward and best regards,

  5. Well I’ll be! Greetings fellow Victorian! Victori’ite? What’s the proper term?

    I really enjoy reading your blog – the quotations and photographs give pause to thought. Just one thing – because Hornby Island is one of my favorite places in the world…and my favorite beach in the world is Whaling Station Bay….it is Whaling – and not Whalers – you scared me with that…thought I had been wrong forever. Thank you for writing and sharing.

    • Thank you for stopping by, Angela, and for your kind comments. I’ll have to go in and change the relevant blog posts so that I have the name right. It’s funny that I could be so sure about the name. A little fact-checking might be a good idea! I have a couple more Hornby Island posts coming soon. It’s one of my favourite places in the world too.

    You have a beautiful blog here! I love your sense of adventure. The stories and pictures revolving around your sailing adventures – wow.

  9. Ralph says:

    Hi Sally . I came on the roundabout route through your old blog. I wish you all the best for your future. Ralph x 🙂

  10. Ralph says:

    Hello darling Delicious. Your old blog still comes up on emails…..wordpress again!! You are very welcome to return and give me a hard time with your comments. Must love you and leave you as it is 03:00 in Spain and time to sleep and dream. Ralph xx

    Just wanted to let you know I have nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award. I wrote it’s because your blog is full of “Adventure and Gratitude seasoned with humor and love”. Keep those wonderful stories coming!

  12. Marianne says:

    Just got up this morning to hear about a big earthquake overnight, off the west coast of Canada. Hope you are OK, Sally. I think from the news reports it´s further north of where you are, but still thinking of you.

    • How lovely of you to think of me, Marianne. The earthquake was further North, and thankfully it sounds as though nobody was hurt. But I arrived home last night from New Orleans to tsunami warnings. Something I couldn’t have anticipated when I started blogging was the way it would connect me to people around the world – and somehow make world events more real, more close to home.

      • Marianne says:

        You´re quite right – what a lovely bonus it is to have real connections to other bloggers around the world. People who, after time, you get to know, and really care about. I have even met up with a few of them 🙂 It´s a small world, really.

        Glad everyone is OK, that´s the main thing.
        ((Hugs)) x

  13. Sally—Is there any way I can talk you into reviewing a blog post of mine? It is outside my comfort zone and is not the crass stuff I typically write…800 words so not a big project. Beau

    Actually, if anyone else wants to volunteer that would be appeciated too….

  14. …superb blog you have here!…im based in burnaby…just across the waters from you!

    You and Tracy Fulks were the highest bidders, and you helped me reach $1000 in 24 hours for Movember. You will both win half of my mustache comes December… Congratulations… I think!
    Le Clown

    • Le Clown, though I am delighted to be one of the winners of your Movember contest, and even more delighted about your successful Movember campaign, I’m not exactly excited about the prospect of receiving part of your moustache at the beginning of December… Given your stratospheric rise in blogging fame, I’m thinking that soon, you could auction those hairs one by one on eBay.

    You have a beautiful blog. I have been enjoying following it. Your journey is one that so many feel a bond with. Thank you for following mine as well. One of the best things about blogging is the many interesting and wonderful people you cross paths with.

    Hey Sally, I just wanted to pass this on to you…
    In keeping with the community values of WordPress, I want to pass on the “I am Part of the WordPress Family Award” nomination that was so kindly passed on to me by Goldy @ http://goldyigal.wordpress.com/. You have moved me, made me laugh out loud and given me lots to think about. Thanks for your support. Keep blogging because I (and others) will keep reading!

    • Thank you so much, Diane! I have been on a blogging hiatus and somehow getting back to it has felt hard. This is just the push I need. (And besides, I need to get back to reading so I can follow your adventures in Sicily!)

  26. I have been trying to persuade my sister to take up kayaking again. I will be sharing your wonderful new post with her. Thank you!

  27. Dear Sally, Please get in touch ASAP. Mr. Wrong is very nearly ready to be published and would need to pull your contribution if you do not sign the permission form. Please get in touch as soon as you can. I would love to include your witty piece.

    Lol, I have to laugh about the dog comment. I was living in a world of female… Wife, two daughters, and female dog. I named my boat, Estrogen Escape. Now I am divorced and I adopted the ugliest male dog I could find. Ex made me sell the boat… arg.

I'd love to hear what you think!
