The Fredericksen course was the first course that we visited on this trip. The hidden driveway lead to a heavily forested park. We met up with a couple of friends and headed out for a round.
The course is a little rough around the edges, no tee boxes but beautiful baskets on every whole. This is perfect for our group of course-deprived Canadians. The massive number of trees and elevation change made this course fun and challenging. What a great way to kick off the weekend.
We liked the course, and there are some great holes and with a little bit of clearing of the trees, this course would rock. The amenities may be lacking, but the holes are great.
Today was my last day at MYRA. I was at MYRA for almost three years and I have learnt a lot in those three years. While at MYRA I filled many roles, including
- Web technical analyst
- Web developer
- Technical analyst
- Project Manager
I had the pleasure of working with so many great people at MYRA, and I learnt a great deal about the IT Industry, service delivery and business. I will miss the people at MYRA, they are the ones who make it such a great place to work.
I will be starting a new job as a project analyst at Island Health (formally Vancouver Island Health Authority or VIHA). The Island Health opportunity looked like a great way to further my skills as a project manager working on large projects in a PMO. The PMO will have a staff of 50 peope and will show me a side of project management I have not yet been exposed to.
So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
Working at MYRA has been incredible, an experience that I will remember for the rest of my professional career. I am looking forward to a new set of challenges working for a new employer, for those who I have met at MYRA, keep in touch.
For the non-geeks, So Long, and Thanks fo All the Fish is a reference to the Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe.
Swan lake is a nice little lake in Saanich. I have skirted around it many times on bicycle while riding on the Lockside Trail.
Looking down at the ducks
Last weekend we decided to check out the rest of the park with Oliver. I had never been to this part put it was pretty cool and Oliver really seemed to enjoy running around and interacting with the wildlife.
Up close and personal, the ducks were not afraid to stay close.
Ducks doing tricks for us
This was a fun place, Oli loves to get out side and it was neat to see him interact with the wildlife.
You can get seriously close to these ducks.
