Top 10 Bucket List Items – Number 10 – Update

I was browsing for hiking books online and came across this gem. We now have a comprehensive guide to a wide range of falls, complete with how to get there. We are considering a loop in September and will keep you updated.

As a plug, we do not purchase books from chains, preferring local bookstores. When in Cranbrook, please patronize Huckleberry Books or use their website at https://huckleberrybooks.ca/

Just A Picture- August 4, 2021

Found this sitting in my drafts, time to share I’d say, and give us a reminder that this isn’t too far down the road again.

Don’t think we saw the conjunction on December 21. We received 30 cm of snow that night. Up to 20 inches for our American friends. It is pretty though, until you have to shovel it.

Took this shot on February 27, 2021. Norbury Lake in East Kootenay, British Columbia. Taken with iPhone XR, no filter. Doing a tour north and east of Cranbrook. The wall of mountains is stunning. The spot on the ice is someone ice fishing.

A Life Post – December 8, 2020

Our Retirement Place

As we state in our About page, we suddenly realized about 15 years that today was coming, and coming fast. Today meaning, getting older and facing retirement. Retiring is a hard thing to contemplate after working so hard and for so long to try and reach the goal of enjoying life with adventure and contentment. On occasion we will be posting some of our successes, failures and projects along this path. We are not experts, only experiencers. I think I just made that word up (experiencers), spell check didn’t like it. We will share without preaching, hopefully creating a story of some sort. I know a lot of readers will have had some of the same experiences, please feel free to share yours in the comments.

Retirement isn’t the end of the road, but just a turn in the road.

Just A Picture….and a Shameless Plug

First the picture, overlooking Monroe Lake.

Now the plug. Having basically abandoning my blogging, with periodic stabs at reviving my interest, I am now committing to re-learning the techniques. Many changes since my last consistent typing. As I work on that, I am posting on a regular basis on my music site, https://therealcanadianmusicblog.com/ So far so good, have a ton of photos, videos and ideas for both and hope to get back into a regular schedule.
