We are an active couple who travels a lot. My husband is a retired Dean of Sacramento State and I am a former executive of non-profits. We enjoy meeting people, and have many interests. We have hosted visiting dignitaries from all over the world through the International Visitors Center. Sacramento is close to the wine country, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, and San Francisco. As Californians we have been most everywhere in California, the most beautiful state in the US. We love to hike, ski, camp, enjoy the arts, music and the California coast. Charlie, writes novels and poetry, loves photography, and is an artist. I make semi-precious stone and crystal necklaces and enjoy gourmet cooking. We enjoy wine and have been to many wineries in California.
