Take a Gander at This

All photos taken on October 6, 2022.

We were headed away for a road trip the next day and opted to take a spin around Beaumont on our bikes to see what was shaking, flying, landing, splashing, etc. The Canada Geese are still enjoying their daily routine of fattening up on spilled grain, practicing flying V formation, landing and take-offs, having a bath and just generally splashing around in the ponds and lakes.

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. So many wonderful photos, Allan, especially the ones with birds. I love to photograph birds. The variety of shapes, sizes, and colours—and what this diversity reveals about species’ adaptations to diverse habitats—makes them fascinating subjects. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. We were lucky to be down by the pond that day to see the comings and goings. I am never sure why we call someone we do not like a “bird brain”. Given how birds act, I would think that should be a compliment. Thanks for reading Aiva. Have a great weekend. Allan

    1. Thanks Leighton. It was like there final days of instruction of flying, taking off, landing, hygiene, honking. I think the group gathered on the shore in a couple of my shots may have been the first timers and very unsure of what to do. Glad you enjoyed the post. Happy Saturday. Allan

    1. I never heard if Gary went over. I left the burst (10) sequences automated as there would be no need to stop for a closer look. The others are dissimilar. Thanks for reading Bernie. Allan
