Last Seaside Sunset

All photos taken on February 4, 2022.

To say that our hotel room had a water view might be construed as being overly generous. If we stood on one leg, close to the window, cocked our head sharply to the right and squinted, we could just see the sunset over English Bay, sort of.

Sorry for the fuzzy pix, but there was a lot between us and the water. That being said, we loved our 10 nights at the Listel. We originally planned on staying 8 nights, but extended our stay for 2 more nights to wait for the weather to improve in the mountain passes. We were both anxious and sad to be leaving. Much as this was not supposed to be a relaxing fun trip, we still managed to enjoy our moments in Vancouver.

Last seaside sunset.

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. Thanks Linda. Next time, I’ll walk down to English Bay for the full screen experience. We were lucky the hotel was not too busy at the time and we were able to extend on short notice. Thanks for reading. Allan
