In retirement, Pam became a world traveler, visiting all seven continents with her best friend, longtime partner and wife, Glenda Davis.

They photographed penguins in Antarctica, did a safari in Africa and visited the Cape of Good Hope, sailed the Yangtze River out to Shanghai, China; they traversed the Panama Canal, sailed and hiked along the Amazon River in both Peru and Brazil.
