Four grown kids, five delightful grandchildren, constant, long-time partner. A retired academic, I've recently moved with my husband from a waterfront home on a very small (Canadian) West Coast island to a condo in the city (Vancouver). Keen to discover what new priorities emerge, what interests persist in this urban life after 60!
And here are some more red-splashed images, but these are quintessentially island-style, rather than Parisian
Images of a wooden sabot we bought secondhand from a friend's yard sale a few years ago, which hasn't got as much use as we'd hoped.
Paul's not finding nearly as much time as he'd thought he might, in retirement, having taken on a variety of consulting contracts, but he's trying to refurbish this little boat so that one day the grandchildren might row and sail it in our little bay.
Meanwhile, though, I just enjoy the abstract designs it offers -- talk about colour-blocking!
Nature gives it a run for its money, red-wise -- these cotoneaster berries, against their foliage, hint at Christmas just around the corner. . .
Meeting today, and then I'm heading to Vancouver where I'll be running a Half Marathon with my sister on Sunday, all going well. What are you up to this weekend?
