Port Moody, My Home-Port

by Myrta,

I grew up in Switzerland, travelled Europe, met and married a Canadian working in Zürich and ended up first in Ontario where our children were born and eventually moved across Canada to B.C.

We checked out Burnaby first as my husband was teaching at BCIT but soon found this gem (Port Moody) and decided to make it our home. The neighborhood we settled in was and still is very supportive and it had many advantages for me : 1) the schools for my children were close by and 2) so was the university (SFU) as I was working to get my degree in Science, 3) various after-school facilities for my children were within short driving distance. We moved once within our neighborhood and are still here in College Park after nearly forty years. Our plans are to enjoy the rest of our retirement right here in Port Moody. My husband works out in the gym at the Port Moody rec center and I joined the local 50+ club and it's activities. I love playing my ukulele with other seniors and hope to get back to it after the pandemic.
