Just off Dock Square in the heart of Kennebunkport, there's a small restaurant called Three Dories. I've never taken a seat at a table there and probably never will. At first sight, I thought, now this is what a retirement lifestyle is all about. Just drifting. Doing little. No commitments. Just hangin'. On further reflection, the truth came. Today, this is the epitome of the opposite. Retirees are not bobbing in place waiting for the end. They are out and about, constantly on the move. Doing all sorts of maneuvers, reaching places they've never been, meeting new faces, accepting new challenges head on. In lots of ways, they're 'working' harder than they ever have.
Working at trying to have lots of fun that is.
Off to some water today.
Details coming soon.
Hint: I won't be bobbing about.
I like a balance between busyness and bobbing!ReplyDelete
I love the photo. I can assure you I'm not bobbing about either. I'm even still working but only part time.ReplyDelete
To answer your questions:
1. Think of "Bank" without a "B".
2. Different Garfield entirely.
I think they are all enjoying life! Ahhh and I guess they could have a blog!ReplyDelete
Lovely picture, just perfect.
Being retired is like being self-employed - you think you do what you want but there is actually a lot of work to do!ReplyDelete
Ain't that the truth. Retirement is go, go, go.ReplyDelete
Sounds like you are enjoying yours!ReplyDelete
Good for you! Enjoy. :)ReplyDelete
Oh, no! Say it ain't so, Birdman! And here I was looking forward to one day tying my dory down.ReplyDelete
happy 'moving around' to you. :)ReplyDelete
This is the time to pursue interests, not sit in a chair and watch the world go by.ReplyDelete
Water is always good...ReplyDelete
I had a really busy day today. It just took me until three o'clock to figure out what to do.ReplyDelete
A retired friend told me he is far busier now than when he was working. Enjoy, Birdman!ReplyDelete
it's true, when one has one's health. But like Kate, I must remember to make time for bobbing. Bobbing is good for the health!ReplyDelete
I don't know Birdman, bobbing about sounds very appealing to me right now :)ReplyDelete
Calm and Peaceful!ReplyDelete
