My husband Darryl and I own and run a Bed and Breakfast in Parkview, where we have lived for the past 30 years. We started Remote Corner B & B in 2009 when our 2 children went away to university in Cape Town.
I enjoy art and gardening, and Darryl is an engineer. He loves nature and wildlife, and was Event Director at our local parkrun - and for parkrunners around the world, our run is Delta
We love travelling, although haven't done much recently. If I have a favourite city, ( that of course second to Johannesburg) It would be Paris.
We have met such wonderful people over the years and have made many friends.
