And Then There Were Three – Part 2

All photos taken October 21, 2022.

It was a bit of a hike back to the Mobi Station, another 1.3 km ( 3/4 miles) and 17 minutes. By this time, we were tired and longing to get back on wheels for the home stretch.

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 think most West Coast cities have a similar attitude. From San Francisco to Portland to Seattle to Vancouver. The nicer weather helps. San Diego on the other hand opted to go the scooter route and they are just too dangerous. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Have a great Wednesday. Allan


  1. It’s quite adventurous to be whizzing through the city like this, bike-friendly or not. I have always been a bit edgy about city street cycling, and this is coming from someone who cut his teeth cycling across the city and back to and from work each day during my Amsterdam years.

    1. Our heads are on a swivel when we are riding and we do have a good leader. The worst areas are near parking garages downtown, where many simply drive across bike lanes without worrying. The cyclists of Amsterdam scared the H— out of us, until B told us the secret to surviving as a pedestrian….pick a direction and a tempo and don’t deviate. Right enough, the cyclists simply went around us or between us. Thanks for reading Leighton. Allan

  2. Urban cycling is fun, and healthy and lets you see your town in a new and interesting way. I love how a bike can get you to the grocery store, concerts, to school or work—you name it. And to join the pedal parade, you just need to know a few basics about being a savvy and safe urban rider, and choosing the right gear and accessories. If I was cycling through Vancouver in the colourful leaf season, I would have to stop every few hundred metres to take photos. I can only imagine how beautiful Vancouver is when streets are lined with bright red leaves that look stunning against the condos and docks. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. Over the past 12 years of Vancouver visits, our riding has changed a lot. Initially we would ride on manual rental bikes and when we could not keep up with B, we switched to a manual tandem. Then when the knees started to complain, it was onto E-bikes. We still keep going. B & K use bikes as one of their main modes of transport and neither drive nor own a car. Given the cost and problems of driving a car in Vancouver, it is the way to go. Riding in Vancouver in the autumn was like a Technicolour trip. Thanks for reading Aiva. Allan
