ANGELA & BRIAN

OUR LEISURE TIME ~ ANGELA ~ AN ACROSTIC SONNET !



SAILING IN AUCKLAND HARBOUR EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR ~ AMEN !

 

ONE has to Work to Survive !

Usually Monday to Friday

RECREATION - Saturday & Sunday !

 

LEISURE TIME for Recreation

Everybody needs some Leisure Time

I like to SAIL on a SATURDAY !

SUNDAY is for Worship and Relaxation !

Unlike the UK - One can sail every day

Real Ocean Sailing in  Auckland NZ

Every Family has a Boat of some sort !

 

Those of you who are RETIRED - plenty LEISURE - But

I suspect to late - for some - for Ocean Sailing ?

Myself & Brian now travel & enjoy sport ..........

Extensively - while we are still Young & Single ! 

 

Thanks for reading - comments welcome - Love A & B - ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก

 

We are conscious that for Millions of People in the World

just existing is a 24/7 struggle and they have little or no

Leisure Time or opportunity to travel outside their own 

Village. The majority in the UK & the USA have Leisure

Time and surplus income to travel and enjoy it !  When

Brian & I travel to Developing Countries we are very

conscious that many Families live below subsistence

level. We do support them financially especially to improve

Health and Educational Opportunities for Children !

Brian & I do important work in our Communities - Vocational

Education and Physiotherapy - which allows us to both enjoy

our Leisure Time and support those less fortunate.  

Love & Peace & Joy to ALL - ANGELA & BRIAN ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก

    I would like to go sailing someday. It looks really fun. ...then again so did white water rafting and that did not go so well for me. Still, you live, and you learn. It is good to sometimes try new things.
    Persistence is key

    • ANGELA & BRIAN

      Thanks DION - ANGELA HERE - Thanks for you comment ! Brian & I are good swimmers so we enjoy all types of Water Sports. White Water Rafting & Canyoning is very popular in NEW ZEALAND as is BUNGEE JUMPING into water Sailing is our number one Water Sport and the bigger the Craft the Better. We have crewed on Tall Ships (as shown in the Video) that is the ultimate Sailing Experience and very Safe ! Florida is a good US State for Sailing because it has the biggest Ocean Coastline of any State ! In ESSEX (UK) we have a Christian Sailing Centre for Teenagers ~ AWESOME !

      Blessings & Joy in JESUS
      Yours ANGELA & BRIAN ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก

        I do not see myself bungee jumping any time soon. I will leave that up to you and Brian. Still, I to love the water.

        Oohh, I got me yacht in the UK - or barge - at the bottom of me garden. Me home backs on to a Canal. Well, I know a friend whose home does so. Erm, it's rather a disused Canal now though. I think they do paid barge tours though.

        • ANGELA & BRIAN

          Thanks UNCLE STEVE - BRIAN & I have been Bargeing on the UK Canals ! Great fun especially the ubiquitous locks. We have also been cruising on the Rhine & the Danube which is a different *Kettle of Fish* altogether. We are fortunate to have some spare time (and spare income) to enjoy our Leisure Time. One day we hope to be able to afford a Yatch of our own ! There is nothing better than *Mucking about on the River*. Essex is not far from the Norfolk Broads and Brian is on NB Boat trip today with his Church - He tells me - Weather is set to be fair ! Pity about the Weather for the ENGLAND / OZ Test !

          Blessings & Joy for You & Precocious Puppy

          You are very lucky that you get to go sailing...I remember when I used to have access to a yacht and I would go fishing a lot....miss those days!

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            Hola Christina Nuestra Hermana Bella. Gracias por tu commentario ! ANGELA aqui ! Your State has lots of shoreline so there is no excuse for not Sailing. Sea & Lake Fshing is also good Sport and you also get your Supper ! Essex has a large Sea Coastline so Brian & I get a chance for some Sailing ! There is a Sailing Club @ Brians College and also the Hospital so we dont need to buy our own Yatch. there is also a Christian Sailing Centre where we volunteer and can help the Teens Spiritually and with their Sailing !

            Blessings Peace & Love to You & Yours
            Muchos Abrazos y Besos

            GRACIAS ANGELITA MIA Y MUY PRECIOSA ! A me gusta tua poema acrostica muy buen. I am pleased you can enjoy your favorite Sport Sailing ~ every Month of the Year in Auckland. As you know we have excellent opportunities to sail on the Essex Coast (without buying a Yatch) but only March to November ! Maybe when we start our Family ~ we will have to emigtare to Auckland for a THOUSAND reasons.! Its a pity youll be back in Essex just as the sailing Season ends ~ thats fate ! When I encouraged you to go to NZ I knew it was the best place in the WORLD for Sport & Leisure. ! The KIWIS are a hard nut to crack @ any Sport. My NZ Friends all tell me *You make a very good KIWI !*

            La Mia Angelita ~ Perfecta
            Muchos Abrazos y Besos
            y siempre Todo de Mi AMOR !
            Tu Oso Grande ~ BRIAN !

              GRACIAS POR TU COMMENTARIO - OSO GRANDE MIO ! Yes I do love to sail Brian - thank you for encouraging me to come to NZ on a Work Exchange. I have loved every minute of it - Especially the opportunity of *All Year Round* Sailing ! However much as I enjoy sailing - I would willingly never sail again - as long as I can always be with you ! Your presence by my side is much more satisfying than any Sport ! Howeer - while we are 11,500 miles apart I will go out on the water as often as possible ! Thanks for understanding !

              Gracias Oso Grande - Todo de mi Amor
              Abrazos y Besos La tua ANGELITA !

                Thanks for your perceptive comments *OUT* Mine is a simple formula ! I love my JOB and I willingly work to improve the *Quality of Life* of my clients - wherever I am in the World. I am a PHYSIOTHERAPIST ! For my services I do receive a salary in currency. With my salary I am free to spend it on Food - Clothing - Shelter - Supporting Charity and if there is any surplus to spend it on Leisure & Recreation - AMEN I am NOT avericious and I see money as simply a neutral device to enable me to survive and also to enjoy LIFE - AMEN - OK

                  In my 47 years and one month of my working life I only worked so that I could enjoy my leisure time outside work and now retirement is mine life is wonderful.

                  • ANGELA & BRIAN

                    THANKS UNCLE ANDY ~ ITS SOMETHING FOR ANGELA & I TO LOOK FORWARD TO IN 39 YEARS TIME ~ GOD WILLING ! In our Church and other Voluntary Organisations a lot of the ancilliary work is done by Pensioners and lots of Granparents I know mind their G-Children to enable their Daughters & Daughters-in-law to eran a crust to augment the family income. So many of the Pensioners I know are Happier & less stressed but still busy - busy - busy !

                    Blessings for YOU & JOYCE
                    Yours as always BRIAN ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

                    Your compassion and empathy for the less fortunate is moving. Nice write!

                    • ANGELA & BRIAN

                      Thanks FRIEND ~ We were both taught by our Parents to set aside at least 10% of our net income for the Work of the Church and for Specific Charities. This is our practice now and will be when we get married in 2020. Thanks for your commendation !

                      Blessings & Peace & Joy
