Sunset in South Carolina

      I have drifted north from Florida to South Carolina, where a few days ago I met up with B. The weather is sunny and in the 60s.

     I finished the project I was working on, and so now I'm back to being retired. And back to blogging. Congrats to Bob Lowry who, I saw, had a piece of his called "What Factor Determines the Success of Your Satisfying Retirement" picked up by the Olderhood website. How can you not want to click over to Olderhood and find out what it is?

     Which reminds me . . . don't forget that I have a list of "More Resources" way down at the bottom of my blog, referencing lots of other sites that might be helpful to us in retirement. Check it out . . . or really, check it out periodically to see what's going on elsewhere in the world of retirement.

     So anyway, last evening B and I together walked out to the pier and watched the sunset.

     This is the view at 5:57 p.m. yesterday, looking east.


     And this is from the same spot, also at 5:57 p.m., looking west.


          As Bob Lowry reminds us, none of us will ever have a problem-free retirement. But may we all have a happy and peaceful retirement.

And may we all get a half dozen beautiful sunsets each month.

There is no where I'd rather be than looking out over the water at sunset.

Nothing better than a stroll on the beach, hand-in-hand with your sweetie! Add a beautiful sunset... even better!

Wow! Your photos taken seconds apart, from the exact same spot, show a completely different view. Very effective! I am glad to hear that you are now retired again -- wishing you a happy and peaceful retirement as well!

I'd love to know why you chose PA as your new residence?
You're never there.
Did you realize that?

I love the soft violet haze in the top picture. And congrats on finishing your project—always very satisfying!

Hi Tom! So now having dipped your toe into the waters of semi-retirement, how did you feel about it? Or is that the topic of another post? From where I stand--firmly entrenched in semi-retirement, it seems like not only beneficial but a wonderful way to go. But that's me of course--and I love my "job." And nice to hear you are enjoying lovely walks on the beach with B! ~Kathy

Enjoyed the photos. My favorite in number 9. Charleston has some very cool iron gates. Hope you were able to enjoy some of the delicious restaurants located in Charleston.
