Westport trip to The Cove

It was another hot day. Hubby suggested we go to The Cove for lunch. They have music on a Sunday afternoon. It was delightful.

The view is amazing.

Happy to support the local economy, musicians and The Cove, also a great supporter of local charities.

What I love to see are people of my generation using technology. The young people mock us, but we've managed to get ourselves out of our rocking chairs, and getting out in the world. Here is a timely news item:

 Revera, UofT collaborating on technology for seniors
Aim is to identify issues that technology can solve

Ninety-year-old Adrienne Dawson says she can’t imagine how she managed living so long without the Internet.
Dawson isn’t alone. Today, she is among the 27 per cent of Canadians aged 75 and older who are online. And it’s residents like Dawson that Revera will be connecting with through a partnership with the University of Toronto’s Technologies for Aging Gradually Lab (TAGlab) to discover new innovations in technology for senior citizens.

Everyone loves technology!
 It was this gentleman's birthday soon. I wasn't brave enough to ask him his age! Again, belies the myth of us retirees being a burden on the system!

Looks like a great way to spend a Sunday ... mocking old people using technology!!! (Just kidding of course since I STILL can't open my voicemail?) W.C.C.

I think you're onto something . Many seniors have become very able technology users. My only concern is for those like my wife who refuse to spend time and learn a little about technology. I keep telling her that someday she will have to do on line banking. She thinks she'll be dead before that happens.
So a big pat on the back to all the old guys an technology.

Well, Red. We learned it for work, and now use it for play!
