That’s So 2020 – Its Time to Bale

October 10, 2020

On this day, we tried a cycle ride around Beaumont, as I had only a limited amount of battery power left. I did not think I would get many photo ops, but threw my camera in the bike basket anyway.

When we stopped at the first storm water pond, it became evident that big plans were afoot and that our Canada Geese would soon be leaving for their journey South. Hmmmm, what did they know that we did not?

Its Time to Bale

Gather up People,

fall is here, its time to bale!

Lets all be Snowbirds.

After working for 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 3+ 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 wanted me to do has been rewarding. While I still miss the social aspect of working with a team of great people, I have managed to keep in touch with many from my former team and I have many friends and family members who now fulfill this part of my life. Now that my Patty has retired, we are able to spend more time in pursuits and with people who are near and dear to us. 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 not become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. They were definitely gaggling around our city, but they overstayed their welcome a bit too long. I awoke at 2 AM one morning after our 10″ snowfall, to hear a group of honkers going over in the snowstorm

    1. The date in red is the date we saw them. In October, they are all gathering around this area, eating grain spilled in the fields and spending the night in the local lakes and ponds, gathering their strength for their long flight South. All the geese have been gone now for about 3 weeks. Thanks for reading and commenting. Allan

  1. That’s a fairly big bird gathering, and just look at all the beautiful pictures you managed to capture. Even with the rainy winter weather I still take my camera with me, because if you don’t have your camera on you, you can’t capture the unusual. Thanks for sharing and I hope all is well. Aiva

    1. Thanks Aiva. Like you, I take my camera pretty much everywhere I go, because you never know what you might see. On this day, it was only to be a simple ride around town, but the geese stole the show. Thanks for reading and keep on capturing. Have a great week. Allan

    1. We could not believe how many had gathered, swimming, taking off, landing, honking. It was fascinating to watch. How is your injury healing? Are you more mobile yet? Hope so. Stay well and thanks for reading Angie. Allan

      1. I’m not able to walk without crutches unfortunately. I have an ultrasound on Monday and I’m still waiting to hear about physio. Thanks Allan, enjoy the rest of your week!
