Different activities

This past Monday Colin pulled out the canoe.

Later in the afternoon Russ came and helped him carry it down to the beach.

Tuesday morning I got up to use the bathroom about 6:30AM and Colin was not in bed. I looked out the window and saw a speck in the distance.

Zooming in through the window I found that it was Colin. Back to bed I went. I don’t sleep well and my best sleep is between 3AM and 8 AM.

Just before 8AM I came outside and Colin had just pulled up onto the beach.  He had a great paddle and did use the Minn Kota engine a bit here and there, mostly when he was enjoying his coffee. It runs off a 12 volt battery.

He was showing me where he had been.

I helped him carry up his stuff.  I am not a morning person but I do want to go next time. My water shoes were in the RV and they are now here with the canoe.  So hopefully I will be getting out there soon.  But who will take our photo?  That emerald green lump in the lower mid section of the photo is one of two that Colin turns the canoe over onto.  That keeps it off the rocks.  Colin then covers the canoe to keep it protected form the sun.  As you can see our beach unlike the Isla is really rather rocky.

Tuesday is senior night here at the movie theaters. Colin found a movie and a time and I booked it online.  Here we are sitting in our recliner seats just as the movie ended.

In the evening we saw the movie ‘Yesterday’ which we both thoroughly enjoyed. Very well done and the music is excellent. The actor Himesh Patel actually does the vocals as well as plays the music in the movie.  You can read about that here. That makes the movie even more brilliant.  I would be willing to see it yet again.

Yesterday was a fun day with a few different things happening from our normal day to day routine.  Maybe we are ever so slowly sliding into semi retirement 😆

    Retirement is somethings that takes some adjustment of slowing down, enjoy what is a round you and appreciate the small things in life. It is a time to slow down a bit really enjoy life.

    I LOVE those recliner chairs at the movies. Got to experience them in Iowa, we don’t have them here in Bend or Redmond
    Saw Rocket Man 3x!!! Loved that show… Want to see Yesterday as like that music too! Youth memories…

      Aren’t they great. I think we have only used them 2 or 3 times. Sadly we were away in Europe when Rocketman came out. I guess we will have to catch it on a rental somewhere.
