And Then There Were 3 – Part 1

All photos taken on October 21, 2022.

B had taken the Friday off and was looking forward to some more Mobi touring with us, to show us some projects, dine on great takeout food and explore a couple of gardens in the process. The day was dampish to start, but not damp enough to deter us.

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. We love Autumn, but do not want to skip spring and summer. By going west in October, we extended our 2022 autumn. Vancouver Metro is like a series of neighbourhoods. They do have a lot of vitality and colour. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan


  1. The cycling world can be intimidating, especially if you are visiting a city for the first time or haven’t been in a saddle for a while. But with the right mindset and gear, you can make the most of human-powered transportation. Looking at your beautiful photos, I can see that there’s no better way to take in Vancouver from so many angles while accessing a range of local tastes and experiences as you go. And with bike and e-bike rental shops throughout the downtown core, it couldn’t be easier. I look forward to your post about Queen Elizabeth’s Park, Allan 🙂 Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. Its funny when I hear people say they have not ridden a bike since they were a kid. A bike saddle feels like home for me, except maybe for the first ride in spring. Seeing Vancouver on a bike is much better than from a car or bus. While most are used to sharing the road with bicyclists, there is still a need to be aware of the traffic and your surroundings. And bicycle parking is much easier than finding a place to park your car. Thanks for reading Aiva. Have a great Sunday. Allan

  2. So much colour on those streets, both natural and from the hands of artists. I particularly like that road where a flourish of red pours out of the greenery. It’s been a long old time since I had a falafel. It’s on the list now, though I fear we may not be able to find one until we get to Athens.

    1. We were in awe of how colourful it all was, even on a rainy day. Mostly yellows in our part of the country, so seeing the reds and oranges were a real treat. I must admit we love Middle Easter food, whether from Greece, Lebanon, Turkey or other places. The combination of flavours in this wrap from Superbabba and the huge size was amazing. We will be back to this place. Thanks for reading Leighton. Allan
