While having a hobby is often fun and exciting, individuals are likely to find that parenting and attending to a career means having to put their passions on hold. Still, retirement living seniors may discover that they are able to enjoy beloved pastimes once again in their golden years.
According to the AARP Bulletin Today, one retirement living senior has reignited his passion for model trains.
Larry Stark, a 63-year-old retired construction supervisor, created one of the dozen miniature rail system that were recently on display for the public by the Model Railroads of Southern California online chat group.
"When you retire, wouldn't you like to do all those things you did when you were a kid?" he told the news source.
Stark, who grew up frequenting the local train hobby shop, put extraordinary details into his model. The tiny railroad system includes paint cracks and mini animals scurrying around the imaginary neighborhood he created.
And while Stark doesn't mention the cost of such a project, the news source reports that some train enthusiasts can spend up to $50,000 on their hobby.
Retirement living seniors should remember that having a regular pastime does not always require spending a lot of money. Activities such as running or even gardening can be accomplished at little to no cost.
