DAILY TRAVEL PHOTO #10

I was selected for this challenge by my friends Tony & Margie from BACK ROADS AND OTHER STORIES and Marie from HopsSkipsandJumps to post one favorite travel picture a day for ten days without explanation, then to select someone else to participate. That’s 10 days, 10 travel pictures, and 10 nominations. I normally do not participate in challenges, but, hey, this is a crazy year, so I will participate in this one and will do my best to make it to the end of the ten days. For now, I select my friends T & Ku  from Journey Junkies for this challenge. Please link to me if you decide to participate. If you are not interested or do not have time to participate, no worries.  My photos will literally be all over the map.

Yesterday’s photo was of ice pinnacles at Fox Glacier (Glah-see-uhr) near the town of Fox Glacier on the South Island of New Zealand. Taken in December 2014. We had hiked to the viewpoint and I caught this shot as the sun was climbing higher into the morning sky. It was a great memory for the view, but not for the amount of ice recession we saw since our last trip. The lower edges of Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers are very close to Sea Level and very accessible for that reason, but also prone to melting.

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.
