As a military "brat," I grew up all over the US, and also in a couple of overseas posts. Spent most of my adult life in Maryland raising two daughters.
After working 18+ years for a local government (legislative branch) in Maryland, I got a chance to early retire, and I took it! I have family in South Carolina, and after a lifetime of driving up and down I95, I decided it was time to get closer to them. The historic city of Charleston was the perfect fit for me. With its wealth of history to explore, and its proximity to lovely local beaches, how could I resist?
Aside from history, I enjoy gardening, good stories, walking the beach looking for shells, and spending time with people that I enjoy.
Love traveling just about anywhere. Places with great natural beauty and an interesting history are right up my alley. I've been fortunate to visit 3 wonderful cities in Italy (Rome, Florence and Venice) and Prague in the Czech Republic, as well as many lovely places here in the US.
I hope you'll enjoy getting to know me a little, and I look forward to getting to know you. Thanks for checking out my listing, and enjoy your stay!
