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 would be a required stop for any visitor. Our son and daughter were married at the Stanley Park Pavilion in 2016. A beautiful venue in a beautiful place. Thanks for reading Marion. Allan

  1. Great photos of Stanley Park. That is such a beautiful place. I haven’t really explored the interior of the park but I’ve walked the circumference several times over the years. I once did it from Granville Street and back but was rewarded with a nasty blister on my foot.

    1. For years, we just walked or rode the seawall, without going into the interior. When we started to spend more time in Vancouver, after our son moved there, we did more and more interior hiking. Good comfy hiking boots are the answer to blisters and foot pain. I can’t walk far in cross trainers anymore. Thanks for reading Glen. Allan
