At the end of June 2018, I retired from a job I’d enjoyed for over twenty years and left a city I’d lived in since childhood to start a new life on Vancouver Island. Sidney, a town of about 12,000 folks, is about four and a half thousand kilometers west and several thousand light years away from Toronto. This blog is a way to share our transition and ongoing journey.

En route from home to the Motor Gathering at Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit we stop for coffee and a bite to eat at Bru-Go's Coffee in Mill Bay. It's a beautifully maintained shop with friendly service. I ask what the house specialty is and then spot the "hedgehog" seen here on the left and decide to try it. It's a rich chocolatey brownie and not really a breakfast food, but I enjoyed it anyway.
