On the Road Again

All photos taken January 26, 2022.

We are beginning to know the subtle nuances of this route, as this was our 8th trip in just under 2 years. But, each trip has slight differences and this one was no exception.

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’m not fond of driving in fog. It can be very unnerving. You still managed to get some good shots. Hope everything is ok in Van with the “kids”. I did note you walked the dog but didn’t visit. Bernie

    1. January was not our favourite time to do that trip, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Patty is getting really good at drive by photography and she did get some good shots. Things are improving slowly, thanks. Likely headed out that way again in another month or two. Thanks for reading Bernie. Allan


    1. The first trip in July was to visit an aging parent once Covid restrictions lessened. The 2nd started the same and included picking the kids up for some enforced family bonding time in the mountains and then to return them. The 4th was to help out the kids during a hectic time. Good thing they are on the West Coast. The East Coast 4X as far. Thanks for reading T. Hope all is well with you. Allan
