Spring in New Brunswick

Here's a little crab that was found on the beach during a field trip to Bouctouche Dunes in New Brunswick.
I do mentoring with grade three kids  at  the local public school where I live and they asked me to join them on this class outing .

It felt good  today to be out breathing the ocean air.  I have to say that the  first year  of my new life has turned out pretty good. My physical health is  much  improved and my MS is under control.  I have lost weight and toned up my body, thanks to the  indoor swimming pool that is right across the street.

 I think back to the wreck I was last year at this time and I'm so glad that I decided to change my life. Retiring and getting out of the big city was the right decision. There are some things I miss about living in a large urban area, yet  don't miss them enough to want to go back.

Things have even improved with  medical marijuana!!

Health Canada has changed the way patients can get approval to use medical marijuana and has licensed producers to sell weed to us. It's now a very simple  application process  and the new licensed producers sell excellent quality weed. Still though, I think marijuana should be legalized  but I doubt it will happen in my lifetime.

One thing that is strange and unexpected. I never thought that looking younger than my age would be a problem.  Most people would probably say that they wish they where in that situation, but no, really ; just like MS, it's causing misunderstandings and disappointment.
