One More Chance to Shine

All photos taken on February 1, 2022.

Our January 30 trip down to Coal Harbour was short and not all it could be due to grey skies and pending rain. We opted to give it one more chance and wandered down under blue skies.

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 a calm, sunny day, indeed Lyssy. The shimmers were everywhere.

      I know you are heading to Paris soon. Not sure you are interested, but I did some posts on my old blog site from our 2017 visit.

      You may get some ideas from the posts. Do make sure that you go up l’Arc de Triomphe and watch the crazy traffic circling Place de l’Etoile. It was mesmerizing. Thanks for reading. Hope you had a great Easter



    1. Thanks Bernie. Sunshine in winter in Vancouver usually means cold, but it makes such a difference. I am with you on the congestion, but also, who can afford the price? Thanks for reading Bernie. Allan
