Woodside National Park

I have had the opportunity to visit Woodside recently during the annual candle and Christmas Festival. I took several pictures and include a couple here.

Woodside was the boyhood home to William Lyon MacKenzie King. He was the 10th Prime Minister of Canada. He did enjoy this house and home and was there in his teen years.

Retirement coming fast

My retirement is very close indeed. I can't believe how quickly the days are passing.

We have made lots of decisions regarding our trip to Europe in the spring. It will include; Cyprus, Istanbul, Hungary and Prague. We also plan to travel east in Hungary. There are lots of day trips planned in all countries.

We have started to meet with Warren on a regular basis. We do some of the preliminary work before we go. Like getting airline tickets and booking hotels. That way there won't be any surprises like finding last minute accommodations.

Come January, we will be booked on our flights and the week in Cyprus will be looked after. We likely will stay in the same hotel as last time in Istanbul.

Do you believe it?

Two years in a row. We are again going to Turkey, Cyprus, Budapest and Prague. This time with my bro. Warren. Can't wait.

I retire soon to boot.
