I fell in love with The Canadaway area when I hiked through as a Girl Scout, and I fell in love with Merv in Coimbra, Portugal. Now I am lucky enough to live in with Merv in the cabin we built in the Canadaway Woods behind the Old House and the A-Frame. We have restored the Old House and the A-Frame to host our family and friends during Camp PapaNana, an annual weeklong retreat for grandchildren, neighbors, and extended family. But the houses pine for more company--which is where you come in!
Merv and I love to travel and cook in Europe, and have eaten very well in Portugal, France and Italy. We love antiques and good books and languages.
As our children were growing we hosted many exchange students and we hope that our houses will host many international guests. Merv speaks and reads French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, and is working on his Mandarin Chinese. I speak Spanish and Portuguese.
We both were predicted to be foresters by the preference/aptitude tests we took in high school, and after careers in pharmaceutical marketing (me) and ministry/counseling (Merv) we are happy to be living in the Canadaway Woods and managing our forest!
Do come and visit!
