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.

Torque Masters Auto Extravaganza
A variety of vintage vehicles are lined up to enter the car show held annually on Beacon Avenue. There's something for every auto buff from military vehicles to muscle cars. The Lion's Club is serving up pancake breakfasts and the Shriner's gave me a balloon dog in hopes of convincing me to buy a $5 raffle ticket, the grand prize being a souped-up Mustang. No dice. For me, the "best in show" was this customized late 50s Rambler station wagon with reclining goddess hood ornament.
