Saving Steps

All photos taken April 21, 2022.

We enjoyed the walk from Prospector’s Point, through the Imrie Property and along River View so much last week, we decided to do it again this week, but skip the 346 steps up and the 346 steps back down at the far East end. It was another stellar day.

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. In Montreal, I assume. We have climbed that a few times, once in near 100 F heat. Not fun. There is a great Aussie pie shop near the start of the climb. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan

      1. Yes! We are in Montreal, Jon for the rest of the week and I fly home tomorrow. I can’t imagine climbing in 100 F heat, even in 75 I was not having fun, but I was also wearing jeans. 75 feels different here vs. NYC for some reason.

  1. Wow, that’s a lot of steps to climb! We have a trail in Sligo that includes over 500 wooden steps. And while the views are worth it, the climb itself isn’t for the fainthearted. Thanks fr sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva

    1. We would rather walk up a hill than climb stairs. The old knees are not what they used to be. The Grouse Grind in Vancouver is known by the nickname Nature’s Stairmaster” with 2830 steps and an elevation gain of 800 m in 2.9 km. Fit people have been known to run these stairs. We never did that hike, but hiked the BCMC next to it (more hill than stairs). A lot of effort required. Thanks for reading. Allan
