We are Paul and Sheila Juilly. We came to Cazadero weekends and vacations during our working years, but moved here full time 4 years ago when we retired. We are both from the Bay Area, Paul being born in San Francisco and Sheila in Oakland. Paul grew up in San Carlos. We met at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo and moved back to the Bay Area after college when we married. We raised 2 children in San Mateo, and after they 'flew the nest', we moved to San Francisco for the next phase of our lives. Paul is a retired structural engineer and Sheila has been a teacher and an administrative assistant. Now we are lucky to be 'on vacation' all the time in this beautiful area. We enjoy hiking, biking, classical music and traveling. We have been to many countries in Europe as well as Canada, Mexico, Japan, China, Cambodia and Tahiti. Some of our travel has involved home exchanges. We enjoy meeting new people and have been renting our guest suite for the last 3 years. For French visitors, Sheila can converse/correspond in French.
We live in Cazadero because Paul's family came to Cazadero in 1918 when his uncle went to Boy Scout camp here. That was the beginning of family vacations every summer since then. Originally we stayed with the extended family in their cabin. In 1979 we had our own house built. We finished the guest suite in 2005.
