We had arrived in Victoria yesterday right at supper time and arrived at Grampa’s place bearing take out Italian food. While the food may have been fine, if dining in, it suffered in transport and not as good as the usual favourite Italian Restaurant in Victoria, Il Terrazzo.

On this day, B was doing his best to find activities and suitable places to visit, that included wheelchair access. He did his job well and before we knew it we were loaded into the car and on our way to Michell’s Farm Market, located on Island View Road in Saanichton.

B had seen this when he rode by last year on a bike ride to see Grampa. It was listed as a Farm to Table place and in addition to the market, had an on site food outlet with outdoor dining.

On arrival, it soon became obvious that we could not push the wheelchair up into the main seating area. However, there were a couple of tables under the covered patio in front of the market.

B and I walked back to Harvest Rd. restaurant (food truck style) and placed the orders. They handed out electronic pagers which would buzz when all was ready. Soon, that buzz came and we carried the food back to the table. The food was OK, but nothing special. It did fit the bill for our outing.

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.
