Hi, we are Vickie and Pete. We've both been teachers for over twenty-five years; I teach English and Art and Pete teaches Math and Physical Science. We live in Pollock Pines, located in the Sierra Nevada foothills of California. We enjoy the outdoors, everything from running, hiking, backpacking and mountain biking, to working around our yard, with two large gardens and seventy-five lavender plants. I love to cook with fresh ingredients, paint, run and enjoy a nice glass of wine. Pete paramotors, golfs, works with wood and brews his own beer. We are the proud parents of two amazing kids and between the four of us, we have visited over twenty countries. Family is at our core and our friends round us out. We look forward to meeting you.
