Welcome to Shannon by the Sea, my very own passion project filled with my love for travel, good food, great family and friends, and most importantly living life to the fullest. 

This blog is just my way of sharing all my fun experiences and travels, and especially the stories that are told along the way.  Not everyday can be a great day, but I will always look for the silver lining, even when it's hard to see. 

So join me! Hopefully we'll learn something new along the way.


About Me

I believe you must bring your whole self to the table if you want to thrive in today’s crazy world; your personality, your sense of humour, and most importantly, your heart.

All of these elements brought me to start Shannon by the Sea.

I am the lucky lady who is married to her best friend, and love of my life.  

I am the step-mom of 3 amazing boys, and a beautiful daughter-in-law.

My newest role is being "Shanny" to our precious granddaughter, Brooklyn-Marie.

My husband and I live in Nova Scotia, Canada during the warm months.

When the weather turns cold, we are off to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.  

We love to travel, visit family and friends

and all the great experiences that come with living everyday to its fullest. 

I am so happy that you have joined me on my journeys,  

and look forward to getting to know you.
