I will assume that you have read the "Message to Host," provided above so you have some sense of who we are. Rather than repeat that, I will add a few lines to it. I was raised in Northern California and my wife was raised in Pasadena but, for the past 40 years or so we have lived in Fresno. As you can probably imagine, living in the heat here in the valley, we love to get away to the coast and enjoy the fantastic climate there. When there, we mainly like to relax but also enjoy dining out, especially at some of the fresh fish and seafood places. We also enjoy exploring wineries, other nearby towns, and short hikes on the beach or in the nearby forested lands. My wife likes to read, but I have never been an avid reader. Sports and good mysteries on T.V. are more my thing. Although older, we are both still very active and we have no physical limitations to hold us back. We would love to some day find our own permanent place on the coast but with the difference in real estate prices between the coast and here in the valley, that may be a stretch. In the meantime, we will settle for our occasional visits to the coast and are looking forward to our stay with you.
