Patricia Lake,

no place we would rather be.

Lake it or leave it.

Early Morning

Just outside the complex, a whitetail doe does breakfast.

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.

    1. The water stirred up and calmed down several times during the day and was always mesmerizing to watch. The deer are fairly skittish, but tend to stay put as long as the cars drive by. If you stop and get out, they will move slowly into the brush. Thanks for reading Marion. Have a great week. Allan

  1. Such fantastic photos, Allan! There is always a morning photography opportunity that will benefit from you waking up early. The early bird catches the worm as they say, and the early morning photographer has the uncrowded places to themselves. Thanks for sharing and take care 🙂 Aiva

    1. There is just something so peaceful down by the lake as the sun comes up. That and the fact that I always wake far too early mean I have caught a lot of worms over the years. Thanks for reading Aiva. Allan
