When I was 50, a wise friend asked “When are the best 5 years of the rest of your life?” Well, the rest of my life starts today.  Being over 50, my best health is now, not five years from now.

The best 5 years of the rest of our lives start today. These are stories of how we spend our best 5 years and how we try to stay active so the five years after that are almost as good.

We enjoy travel.  Here are places we’ve been since 2000, courtesy of TripAdvisor.

We also enjoy wildlife, photography, and California native plants. The featured photo is a Nuttal’s woodpecker searching for bugs on a California live oak in our backyard. The photo was taken with a Canon 40D and 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L lens.

  1. Hello – I’ve looked through a lot of your posts about Africa. I’m headed there in a few weeks to travel overland–camping most of the time through six countries. I enjoyed your photos! I’m living the best years of my life right now!!


  2. Being over 50 I have been drawn to your blog. We have nominated you for the Liebster Award. If you accept, the rules will be posted on my blog (atrivialmindatwork.com) after 2am EDT on 10/5. If you don’t accept, we won’t mind. We will still look forward to your posts. Thanks.
