Sombrio Beach Daydreaming

All photos taken May 19, 2022.

After retracing our steps across the bridge, we again turned right and soon found ourselves down at a gorgeous beach. Others were there, but the beach was not crowded in any sense of the word. We all agreed we could sit here for a while and contemplate our day so far.

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 glorious location Lyssy. I am with you on the surfing, especially at my age. I no longer bounce. The water would have been freezing in May. The air temperature was only about +16 C (61 F). I bet the water was no better than 40 F. Thanks for reading. Happy Friday. Allan

  1. Wow, what a beautiful beach, Allan. Surfing is one of the reasons why I would very much love to visit Vancouver Island. I know that the ocean temperature hovers just around more or less 50 degrees F throughout the year, but living in Ireland, we are very much used to it. Thanks for sharing and have a good day. I hope your summer is going well 🙂 Aiva xxx

    1. It was a beautiful surprise and a great place to pause and relax. There is great surf along the coast of the island. Too late for me to try, but good on you for wanting to try. Thanks for reading Aiva. Allan
