My husband Bob and I moved from Maui eight years ago in order to be near our grandchildren in California. We do miss Maui very much but love our involvement with our family. Even though we are of "retirement age", Bob still works in our neighborhood taking care of landscaping (this is how he made his living in Maui). He is happiest being outside and involved with the earth in some way. We love this area of the Sierra Nevada mountains. It is nice that it is so lovely here because we
certainly miss the every day beauty of Maui!
