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.

As we were visiting a coastal, mountainous city, I knew that Vancouver has some glorious spots to watch the sun come down, but I never expected so many! I was fortunate to visit this stunning strip of the West End and couldn’t ask for a more beautiful place in Vancouver to enjoy sunset thanks to its glorious views of the ocean and mountains. Did you ever write about Queen Elizabeth Park? It’s one of the places we never made it to. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

It is aptly named and we have seen a few sunsets from there, as the boats drift by along False Creek. I have written about QE Park before when we visited with it in its prime. Here is the link…
and there will be another post coming in a few days from October. Thanks for reading. Allan
Looks like the perfect morning stroll! Benji is lucky to have great grand-pawrents 🙂
