Steveston Excursion – Part 1 – Outbound

All photos taken on October 23, 2022.

After a day’s rest from cycling, it seems we were ready to go again. Originally, K was going to be in a conference call, but when that got cancelled, there were 4 of us in wheels.

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. Looks like a great start to the ride! It’s nice you can cover a lot of distance while not having to worry about traffic and parking. In Nantucket they only had a moped, but it only went 35 and the speed limit was 45 and we couldn’t ride on sidewalks so it was a little stressful.

    1. Vancouver is very progressive with bike lanes and trails. B set the pace on his manual bike and we covered a lot of ground. He is used to doing a lot of mileage in one day. Slow mopeds mixed with busy holiday traffic is a recipe for disaster. I see Bali is looking to ban tourists from renting scooters and motorbikes. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Have a great day. Allan


  2. This is such a fun adventure, Allan – I find that cycling is a great way to spend some quality family time and make some precious memories. I love your photo of the heron – they are such amazing flyers and diligent hunters. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. It was a good family outing and the last adventure for the 4 of us for a while. The trail was rich with scenery, birdlife and other folk just enjoying their Sunday. It was nice to see a heron here, as we saw none in Lost Lagoon. Thanks for reading and commenting Aiva. Enjoy your Monday. Allan
