We, my wife Rosina and I, live in Nanaimo. We really enjoy the Island life although the Okanagan is fine too. I retired from BC-Hydro in 2002 and have since been able to pursue many of my passions. Cycling, traveling, wine-making, music making, friends but my family tops them all. We have four children and six grandchildren.
Often our travel destinations are Sweden and Italy but Hawaii works too. A bicycle ride cross Canada with two of my friends in 2006 is one of the highlights after retirement and it was also a life changing experience for us. I highly recommend it. Canada is such a beautiful country that we can be proud of. This year (2016) will be my forth Ride to Conquer Cancer ride and my daughter Carina's first and my son Dan's third. Who knew.
