Four grown kids, five delightful grandchildren, constant, long-time partner. A retired academic, I'm adapting to life in a Vancouver condo after decades in a waterfront home on a very small (Canadian) West Coast island. Keen to discover what new priorities emerge, what interests persist, in this urban life after 60!
Look! It's a regatta! And we've got front-row seats, young and old together. If you look closely, especially if you click to enlarge the photo, you'll note the downiness that indicates the seated chaps are this year's chicks. In fact, you really should enlarge these photos simply to enjoy the dreaminess of colourful spinnakers painted across the horizon, beckoning across the grey mist . . . .
Some are content to stay and watch, but others venture off to do their own sailing . . .
A little watching,
A little snoozing,
A little paddling,
All on a misty grey summer's day . . . . This last one is my favourite photo of all, have a look. . . .
Happy Canada Day, my friends! From me and our worldwide ambassadors, the Canada geese. . .
