Sittin’ Doin’ Nothin’

All photos taken on September 1, 2022. Most people tend to feel guilty if they are simply sittin’ doin’ nothin’, but after almost 8 years of retirement for me and almost 5 for Patty, we have come to terms with this strange phenomenon. We have also answered the question, “If you are retired, does itContinue reading “Sittin’ Doin’ Nothin’”


Making Magical Moments

Don’t Leave Home Without It

Relocation Transportation Transformation Exploration – Part 1

All photos taken on August 24, 2022.

Several things had to align to allow this: ToContinue reading “Relocation Transportation Transformation Exploration – Part 1”

Dewy or Don’t We?

All photos taken August 23, 2022, during our weekly forest walk. Yesterday, our area was infiltrated by wildfire smoke for the first time this summer. The AQI was an 8 and not recommended for outdoor strenuous activity. So, we complied, while we looked for the best timing for this week’s Bunchberry walk. The 23rd wasContinue reading “Dewy or Don’t We?”

Making the Rounds

All photos taken on August 21, 2022. We alternate between rural and city rides, depending on the day and time we have. This day was an in town ride and with a few zigs and zags, we managed to pedal 25 km. (15 1/2 miles) in about 90 minutes. And in the time and space,Continue reading “Making the Rounds”
