Mark Harmon has been spotted for the first time since leaving NCIS after 18 seasons.
The 70-year-old actor was spotted outside his Los Angeles home doing some heavy lifting and household chores, according to DailyMail.com.
The veteran actor and former Sexiest Man Alive was spotted just one day after his beloved character Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs made his final appearance on the hit show.
The silver-haired father-of-two appears to be keeping busy during his acting retirement, as he walked his dogs, brought out trash cans, and wheeled in a large box delivered to his home.

Mark insisted on bringing the box inside by himself, bringing down his own transportation trolley and licking his fingers before wheeling it inside.
The actor turned down all offers of assistance from the delivery man.
Mark, who has been married to Mork & Mindy star Pam Dawber for 34 years, was dressed casually in denim jeans, a sweater, and suede shoes.
Later that day, he was seen walking his two dogs around the neighborhood.
Producer Steve Binder confirmed Mark’s departure in a statement earlier this month, but clarified that he would remain an executive producer on the CBS show.
‘As an executive producer and dear friend, Mark remains an integral part of the show’s fabric,’ Binder said.
‘Our north star has always been staying true to our characters, and that truth has always guided the stories we tell and the places our characters go.’
‘In terms of Gibbs’ future, as long-time fans of the show may have noticed over the years… ‘Never underestimate Leroy Jethro Gibbs,’ Binder concluded.

Harmon’s final episode on the show saw Gibbs solving a case involving a conglomerate CEO hiring a contract k1ll3r to eliminate opponents of a copper mine.
When Leon Vance (Rocky Carroll) offered Gibbs his badge back, Gibbs revealed he was leaving the agency, opting to stay in Alaska, where he’d been for the past few episodes.
In the episode, FBI Agent Parker (Gary Cole) paid a visit to Gibbs’ home after he went missing, telling Timothy McGee (Sean Murray),’something tells me he’s not coming back.’
NCIS was a spin-off of CBS’ JAG, both of which were created by Donald P. Bellisario, which ran for 10 seasons between 1995 and 2005
There were rumors that Mark would not return for the 19th season, but it’s now believed that he did because he learned CBS might not renew the show if he didn’t.
NCIS was a CBS spin-off of JAG, both of which were created by Donald P. Bellisario and aired for ten seasons between 1995 and 2005.
NCIS: Los Angeles, which debuted in 2009 and is currently in its 13th season, NCIS: New Orleans, which was canceled after seven seasons, and NCIS: Hawaii, which debuted this fall, are all CBS spin-offs.
