On the Rocks

All photos taken on May 19, 2022.

As we popped out onto the beach from the Parkinson Creek to Beach trail, we saw why our efforts to hike the trail were more than worth it. The sunny blue skies and the azure seas were in total harmony with the grey rock beach. It was jaw droppingly gorgeous. We could do this for a while.

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. On the hike, we were heads down for every footfall to be sure we did not slip, but we would catch glimpses of the water from time to time, which kept us going. That being said, popping out of the trees onto the rock shelf was still a surprise. It was worth the wet feet. Thanks for reading Bernie. Happy Friday. Allan

      1. Not something I would risk, but I think rocky ledges and shallow water near shore improve wave height, so this may have been the plan.

  1. There’s nothing like standing at the edge of the ocean. With each wave barreling in one after the other, our senses can’t help but be ignited. Smelling that salty and briny sea breeze, seeing its vastness as our eyes scan the horizon to try to comprehend its end, and feeling so small in the middle of its mighty roar or quiet stillness: these are emotions only the ocean can stir. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. Hi Aiva. You are quite right. Even if you come form the middle of the prairie with no ocean in sight, you can’t help but be drawn to the shore. It does have a sense of calm, even if the waves are rough. Thanks for reading and have a great Friday. Allan 🌊🌊
