Road Trip – Benji’s Tale? Tail? Tale!

All photos taken on October 8, 2021 at Sooke Point Ocean Cottage Resort.

My Hoomins asked me to tell you all about my favourite moments from this cottage stay. So, without further ado here are Benji, the Wonder Dog’s Highlights.

When’s Dinner??
What do you mean, Its a Dog’s Life?
If that gull comes back, I’m gonna get him. I mean it. Really!
Nothing beats a good lap nap!
I distinctly remember being promised the deluxe spa treatment.

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. Hard not to smile when you see Benji in those poses. He is a bit of a ham. The first time in that tub, he was scared, but the 2nd time when he knew what was coming, he was moaning like Precious Pup. Thanks for reading Leighton. Hope you had a good weekend. Allan
