Another evening, another sunset. The good news about October, is you do not have to stay up late to see this display. Each night we went down presented a different version. Like a fireplace, no two versions were the same

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 totally agree. In June and July, you need to get up by 5 to see the sunrise and stay up past 10 to see the sunset. Tough for me, even though I am a morning person. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan


    1. This sunset was amazing, especially how the soft October light spread across the water and sand. We spent a lot of time down at the bay that evening. Thanks for reading Bernie. Allan


  1. So beautiful, Allan. I’ve noticed that I knowingly – or unknowingly – always make the time to snap a photo of the sunset – whether it’s walking to my car, looking out the window of my house, or intentionally driving to an area where I can stop and enjoy it. I will always marvel at the mere fact that you will never experience the same sunset twice; each and every one is incredibly special in its own unique way. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. I think you are right Aiva. Sunsets are like snow flakes, no two are alike. We had 3 out of 6 sunsets here that were truly special. Not a bad average. Thanks so much for your comments. Have a great Thursday. Allan
