Life’s a Beach

Photos taken between October 9 and 15, 2022.

As I mentioned, Terrace Beach was just steps away from our front door, well maybe a 3 minute walk. We were down there frequently during the day and most nights for sunset. Like the resort signs say, it was a good place to chill out.

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. As I learned at Port Renfrew, the eagles will come once you stop looking for them. Terrace Bay gave me some stellar shots, especially at sunset. Thanks for reading Bernie. Allan


  1. Ah that tree indeed looked like the perfect spot for an eagle to swoop down onto and survey his kingdom. Or maybe an up-to-no-good vulture. Absolutely majestic sun and moon shots, Allan. That crab looks really pissed off about what happened to him.

    1. Perhaps the eagles left when the people came, but we never saw one here. We did see some on our later coastal walks. When I saw hoe the bay was laid out, I was worried we would be trapped too far from the open ocean to get good views, but the bay actually added to the view. I can hear the crab’s last words as the see gull flips him over….Ah S—! Have a great day Leighton. Allan

    1. We are not lay on the beach people, but we love walking on them and enjoying sunrises and sunsets. The only time I really lay on the beach was in St. Pete’s and sunburned my feet. Gotta love that Canadian Celtic skin. Thanks for reading Scott. Allan

      1. I don’t mind doing the lay on the tropical beach thing for a short amount of time, but I much prefer the walk and explore thing. I also like the not tropical thing, too 😉
        Oh yeah, I got my feet and legs pretty crisply in Colombia, too, so I know your pain LOL

  2. These are such fantastic photos, Allan. Canada might not immediately spring to mind when you think about beautiful beaches, but British Columbia’s west coast has some of the most breathtaking beaches, often without the crowds. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx
