Welcoming the New Retirees

    I attended the RTO District 24 New Retirees brunch today to tell about the activities I run. It was well attended by new and recent retirees all eager to find out how to fill their days, and about the insurance coverage that RTO offers. I'm sure we had quite a few sign up for that reason alone.

   The brunch was bountiful and delicious - more like lunch as far as the quantity of food was concerned - scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, toast, spinakopita, pastries, croissants, lemon loaf, fruit and even cheesecake, and of course, as much orange juice and coffee as you wanted. No one left hungry. It was held at our usual location, Bluffer's Marina, but it is under new management so we weren't sure whether it would live up to the previous owner's standard. It most certainly did!

    The marina is right down by the lake close to the Scarborough Bluffs (hence the name) so we had lovely water views. It was a gorgeous day and ideal for a stroll along the waterfront to walk off all the delicious food.

Some of them don't look old enough to be retired!
 This is a nice view - you can see the boats moored in the background. There are several houseboats nearby where people live year round. All in all, a great day!


  1. Bluffer's Marina does look like a nice spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner! I wonder if many are taking early retirement.
