Heart of Vancity

Lately, I have not done much blogging.  I haven't felt as if I have anything interesting to say, here on my boring little blog, in my boring little life.  But today is the first day of spring, and I am looking forward to summer.  This is the year that I have finally decided to quit working.  We are all of us allotted just so many minutes on this earth -- no more and no less -- and unlike money, when we run out of time, we cannot get more.  I want to spend some time doing the things I enjoy, and I live in a wonderful city in which to do them.  This photo is a picture of English Bay here in Vancouver -- yes, we have palm trees -- and this is my favourite part of the city.

Yesterday someone posted a wonderful video of Vancouver on YouTube, so I thought I would share it with you.  It really is a beautiful city.  Prepare to be amazed somewhat amused.  In the meantime, I'm going to concentrate on getting back my groove.

What an amazing/amusing video. I think I just might send it on to some friends in England and Wales!

Happy Retirement! So many people delay retirement and miss out. Glad you're in good health and live in a great city to retire in. Enjoy!

Congratulations on your retirement! Are you thinking of relocating to English Bay and getting away from your noisy neighbours? Our one bedroom ocean view apartment at the Flamingo Apartments is coming available as we are moving up to a two bedroom. Very quiet building on Beach Ave close to Stanley Park with an excellent manager and mostly older long term people.
