Cypress Falls Park – West Vancouver

Today was a big day. We were loading up the car (and I mean loading) with all the gear required for 4 people and 1 Wonder Dog, so we could travel to Port Renfrew on Vancouver Island.

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 the perfect short walk for humans and Benji. The trees were amazingly thick and the path was easy, compared to what we would eb trying to hike in the next few days. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan

  1. Very nice. It is reminding me how much I need a walk in the forest! Planning on visiting my son in Colorado in August so hoping to get some good hiking in then! Hope all is well up north with you!! Lori

  2. What can be more rewarding than going for a walk in a place with a raging creek, 300-year-old Red Cedar and Douglas Fir trees and opportunities for wildlife viewing? It’s amazing that such wilderness parks can be found so close to civilization. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. Walking in an old growth forest shows us how insignificant we are. That is why so many are doing what they can to protect the forests. Thanks for reading Aiva. Have a good Friday. Allan
