Photo Hunting— trains and planes

Our friend Gattina in Belgium hosts a meme called Saturday's Photo Hunting, with a different theme every week.
It's been a while since I participated, but I couldn't resist this week's theme: trains and planes!

After my parents died, I came close to crossing all of Canada by train, a trip my mother and I
had discussed for decades, intending to leave from Vancouver, but we never made it.
I managed to do most of it, from Edmonton, Alberta, to Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 2010.

My friend Paulette took this photo of me in the train station in Toronto.

Later that year, Dick and I had lunch in San Francisco on our way to Hawaii.
This is a photo of the California coast taken from the air.

I love trains. Living on a tiny island, we have the subway but not the traditional trains.
