    Retired today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, the day has finally arrived. My last day of work and to celebrate we spent a great couple of hours lolling about in the pool sipping Champers.



    I am expecting to start posting more photos to AP from now on as I have LOTS of time on my hands.
    I took a series of shot via the remote. Light levels were dropping so I upped the ISO to 2000. Not a bad result considering the high setting.
    BTW I'm the one on the left, wife and son with me.

    Geoff and what a great Day for you and the Family and a fantastic way to celebrate it too

    Mind you there is no such thing as retiring, to me you work harder as its takes longer to do the things you used to do when you were younger

    I shoot with Canon And Olympus Cameras

    Thank you all for the messages. I'll start enjoying this new life once I get over the 24 hr bug I seem to have picked up. Head ache, crook in the stomach. Must be something I ate.

    Geoff

    Enjoy your free time for the next few days, until the list is produced.

    You'll soon wonder where you're going to find the time to do the things you want to do, let alone those you "have to do"
