We had arrived in Victoria yesterday right at supper time and arrived at Grampa’s place bearing take out Italian food. While the food may have been fine, if dining in, it suffered in transport and Grampa lobbied us to take him to his favourite Italian restaurant instead. We demurred.

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. No worries. It all sounded good on the web. They capitalize on the constant flow of bicycles on the Galloping Goose Trail right beside the place. I think the food truck was just leasing the spot from the market. Thanks for reading. Allan

    1. In retrospect, I should have had the veggie baguette. Given where this place is located, I think they kind of specialize in vegetarian/vegan food. It was a great market/food/produce concept for sure. Thanks for reading Aiva. Allan

    1. I got the feeling that they specialized in vegetarian and that may eb where I went wrong. Good setting and good company was the bonus. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Hope you had a great weekend. Allan
