Relocation Transportation Transformation Exploration – Part 2

All photos taken on August 24, 2022.

…now, where was I? Oh, yeah, bike riding through the Edmonton River Valley. In Part 1, we left our intrepid duo (always wanted to say that) at the James MacDonald Bridge roughly in the center of Edmonton.

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. I agree. A lot of distance covered. On days like those, you feel you could go on forever. This morning it is -22C (8 below F) and we will be braving a forest walk. After the past few days of cold and wind, it should fell pretty balmy. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan


    1. It was a perfect day in every way. I have played that golf course. It is between two city roads and I am sure errant drives likely hit cars. Maybe even mine, if only I could have struck the ball that well. Thanks for reading John. Have a great Saturday. Allan


  1. Such wonderful photos, Allan 🙂 Cycling lovers know how liberating it can feel to zip along a bike path, taking in the charm of a city without the downsides of crammed public transport or traffic jams. I wish more cities around the world would invest in quality infrastructure and regular events promoting bike riding. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. Edmonton is late to the party with cycle infrastructure, but they did concentrate on multi use paths in the river valley, so are catching up fast. Vancouver is still the best in Canada, as you will see when I start those posts. Jasper starts tomorrow and we also got some good cycles in there. Thanks for reading and commenting. Happy weekend Aiva. Allan

  2. Glad you didn’t cycle ‘A Bridge Too Far’. A highly scenic expedition with a seemingly perfect sky and so much to take in along the way. Just under 33km is a proper workout, glad you explained what that last shot wasn’t 😉

    1. We thought that the Henday bridge might be a bridge too far, but were pleased to see we could cycle across to the other side. 33 k is not as good a workout as it would have been on a regular bike, but it got us out of the house. Yeah, it was a hot afternoon and I took my shirt off. Patty saw an angle she could work with and there you have it. Thanks for reading and commenting Leighton. Allan
