My Perfect Day – 

I was born and brought up above the business I have worked in all my life. From when I was old enough to cross the street on my own, I was sent to the local tailor, with items for alteration and to collect altered ones. How life has changed ! Then I spent my summer holidays giving a hand as best I could. So probably one of the best days in my life was when I finished school and became a proper employee ! I had dreamed of nothing else and wanted nothing else. I am now retirement age but have no desire to leave what has been my life, at least for another while. It has been a pleasure to interact with people and make every effort to please them. ‘Giving good service’ has been our motto and still is.’

My Perfect Day – 

‘A perfect day is any day I can get close enough to watch the waves make towards our West Coast shore. The tide constantly ebbs and flows, leaving its rippling signature on the sand. Connecting with the natural cycles of earth, sea, sky and the ever changing light. The ocean captivates and fires my imagination and leaves me with a sense of wonder and tranquility.’

The Ocean stirs the heart,
Inspires the imagination
And brings eternal joy to the soul.’

Robert Wyland
