Weather she was flamingo dancing in Florida, dog sleigh riding in Aspen, soaking up the sun in Oahu, skiing in Whistler – Canada, ballooning in Temecula, CA, puddle jumping the islands of Hawaii, celebrating the 4th of July in Boston, observing Alaska’s Polar Bears – before they become extinct, observing the engineering marvels of the Panama Canal, she had no regrets . . . Well, maybe a few.
