Sailboats scudding over sea waves,

slice through bright glimmering surface.

Seals swim seaward with such purpose,

as seabirds squawk in small enclaves.

Leaving this place sure won’t be easy

it has become our coastal home.

But no matter where we next roam

we’ll recall this life, bright and breezy.

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. I have indeed. Fun Fact, While it refers to Islay, Scotland, my Dad was born in Islay Alberta. Love Hayley Westenra’s version of anything. Mists of Islay is apparently a very fine Scotch. Cheers. Allan

  1. Your photos show the might and beauty of our seas and oceans, Allan. They are incredibly beautiful, filled with life, but at the same time, they can be quite humbling and even terrifying. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva

    1. I agree. When you are home, you want to travel and when you travel, you wish you were at home. The place is special and if we were there longer, it may lose that specialness. Thanks for reading Bernie. Allan
