I'm a newcomer to beautiful Western Sonoma County and live two blocks from the Russian River. I spend a lot of time looking out my window, watching the mist curl its way down the neighboring mountain. I have a wonderful senior dachshund named Rosie. I adopted her last year, and she has me almost fully trained to do her bidding.
I've traveled widely (Poland and Turkey are two of my favorite places, and I lived in India for a year and worked for Mother Teresa for several months), but these days am more interested in exploring my own backyard.
I don't smoke, drink rarely, and am generally a quiet and respectful guest. As a host, I love sharing the best secret places with visitors, including best bakeries, best beaches, etc.
