Weekly Photo Challenge-Path



My contribution for this week’s challenge…



Our planned path for 2016 was to take us on a trip

to Europe with and few nights in Dubai on the way home.

Home in time to see our younger son married in November.

However, broken glasses in January and visits

to numerous ophthalmologists and being told I had

an ‘A typical melanoma‘ in my eye.


The pale colour is abnormal.

Best course of action was removal.

Sightseeing was looking dimmer and dimmer.

To cut a long story short…end of  June, no change,

early November, still no change.

My next visit is May 2017 .

And many, many test during  the early months of the year

revealed that I have Sarcoidosis…and not a melanoma.

So although the start of the year was very rocky…

and Dubai.

And we did see our younger son married.

My path for 2017 is to revisit France and

the Western Front where

my Grandfather served

during World War I.

Just a short trip.

It may or may not come to fruition.
