Paradise Found
MORE Recollections of a Kid from Penetanguishene
by Robert Popple

When Robert and Heather Popple moved to the Pacific Northwest to live in British Columbia’s Fairwinds on Vancouver Island in 2003, it marked the beginnings of an exciting retirement adventure. This companion volume to Born in Huronia summarizes the past twenty years of Popple’s life in BC and includes nine first-hand stories by people he has met in that time. They include Shelly Stouffer’s stoke-by-stroke account of her 2022 victory at the Senior Women’s US Open and surrender of a Nazi submarine in 1945. From Popple’s description of the first Europeans arriving in the Pacific Northwest to avoiding insanity in retirement to his travel adventures, his summation of the Trump presidency, and the details of his Mother-of-all organ recitals, this book is simply a must read.

I was born in Penetanguishene, Ontario and currently live on Vancouver Island with my wife of 58 years. I obtained a B. Sc. in Engineering Physics in 1963. I was in the nuclear-electric business in Ontario before moving to Vancouver Island in 2003. This book is my fifth book after Northern Belle, Keyboard Virtuoso: John Arpin, Cold War Warrior, and Born in Hiuronia. Paradise Found is Vol. II of a 2-volume memoir, Born in Huronia being Vol. I
