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. My son knows every bikeway in Vancouver and is usually our tour guide. On this day, he gave us Mobi-lity and we rode familiar paths. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan


  1. What a great ride, wonderful views and nature en route with interesting landmarks to boot, From that distance Wetsuit Woman bears more than a passing resemblance to the Little Mermaid in Copenhagen. Love Cormorant Row… could be the album cover to a lost Byrds album.

    1. Thanks Leighton. We love walking or riding the Stanley Park Seawall. Our kids who live there, not so much, especially on busy weekends. I agree, I always thought Wetsuit Women was a replica of the Little Mermaid, until I read up on it. Those cormorants were crazy, like Thai monks lined up for their morning meal. Not sure why they hang together like that. Thanks for reading Leighton. Allan

  2. Yet another fantastic post about one of my favourite cities, Allan. And it very much makes me want to visit once more. I even checked the flight times and prices, but I’d rather wait for baby Lilly to be a bit older before we jump on a 12+ hour flight across the pond.

    Looks like autumn is a spectacular time in Vancouver as the weather cools down and the leaves change colour. Given the city’s extensive network of bike lanes and paths, Vancouver is an ideal destination for sightseeing on two wheels. I wish we rented bikes to pedal along its seaside route to see Vancouver’s beaches and urban waterfront areas.

    I was pretty amazed that there are cities like Vancouver where commuting to work, or even just casually biking about, is now no longer a life-and-limb undertaking. Unlike in Dublin, where the only people brave enough to ride downtown are bike couriers. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. I remember wanting to travel when our little ones came along, but being hesitant. I am planning another Analogue Adventures series showing what it was like travelling for the first time to Hawaii/New Zealand with a 16 month old. Vancouver should be a good destination for you with a little one. Autumn is pretty spectacular on the West Coast and good weather seems to be more consistent. When you get to Vancouver, there will be bike rental companies who rent both bikes and bike trailers so you can see it all.

      Yes, Vancouver has been improving there separated bike lanes since our son moved there in 2010. Recent city government changes seem to be slowing that down, but hopefully not for too long. There are just some cities where it is not easy to ride safely, as I found out in Nice, although it is now getting better. Thanks for reading and commenting Aiva. Happy Friday. Allan


    1. This side seems to change the least, except the row of glass towers continually being added to. I agree that sunshine makes a lot of difference in how we feel, but the day did get b righter. Thanks for reading Bernie. Allan
