Making Magical Moments

All photos taken on September 1, 2022.

Unpacking over, we could finally relax enough to go sit down by the lake and watch the sunset. This trip, we had managed to squeeze our folding camp chairs into the car, so we would be much more comfortable.

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. Thanks Lyssy. We arrived right at the perfect time for this dragon fly display. They do love flitting around the lakeshores. The chairs were a good add to our packing list. Thanks for reading. Allan


    1. The blue darners are my favourite dragonflies. They seem as curious about us as we are about them. A couple of years ago, we had a similar experience by Valley of the Five Lakes. The midges did not bite, but we did not want to breathe them in. Thanks for reading Bernie. Allan


    1. Thanks Leighton. Nature paints a pretty picture. We just have to slow down to see it. I love doing ripple and foam water shots. The captures can be better than one thinks. Thanks for reading and commenting. Allan
