Road Trip – Evening Reflections

All photos taken on September 25, 2021.

We took a similar tactic as a family, as we did when we were here by ourselves. Each evening, we would stop what we were doing to wander down to the lake at or near “sunset”. That word is in quotes, as we did not really get a spectacular sunset on any of the evenings, but there was always something shaking, down by the lake.

time seems to pass more slowly.

Eve’ning reflections.

Skipping rock competition. While each of us had varying degrees of success, there was not a clear winner. Finding flat rocks of the right size and weight proved to be the problem.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. It was good to see our adult sons (and me) acting like boys again. The lake is a good place to relax and unwind. Patty and I got our Covid booster yesterday. Arms are a bit sore today, but otherwise all is well. Thanks for reading Aiva. Allan
