Hi Kari, We are a newly-retired couple anxious to do a little traveling and explore a new place. We have been married 38 years and have three children ages 24 through 28. Both of us were raised in California - John has been an electrical engineering manager and I have done a variety of secretarial, accounting, IT, and public school work. John likes to hike, ski, and bicycle and we both like to watch detective and history shows on TV. I have lots of arthritis problems, so I don't do the outdoor things so much anymore, but I do a lot of sewing, knitting, and simple jewelry work. We both like to read, go to museums, and socialize with friends. This will be our first trip to the San Juan Islands and Orcas will be the first stop on our itinerary. Then we will go on to San Juan and then Victoria for a few days. We are looking forward to exploring your part of the world.
