(Deland, Fla.) – Retirement means different things to different people. Sometimes, the meaning changes as the years go by.


For David Watson, a resident of Good Samaritan Society – Florida Lutheran, retirement started with lots of travel. It has evolved into the patient, creative work of building handmade canoes.


David is a retired master mason, as was his father before him. His wife Suzanne is a retired educator. They crisscrossed the United States both on motorcycles and by motorhome. But when it was time to settle down, they lived in their motor home in Mt. Dora, Fla.


These days, they make their home at Florida Lutheran where David takes advantage of the air-conditioned woodworking shop. He’s completing his third wooden canoe and, at age 85, he’s calling it his last.


The workshop is one of many amenities that help residents like the Watsons live fulfilling lives, no matter what stage of retirement they find themselves in.
