i am a native Californian and retired grandmother formerly from Santa Barbara, San Diego, and the Bay Area, I have been living in the beautiful Sierra foothills for over 13 years now. Having been self-employed most of my life in various businesses, including publishing, graphic arts, and real estate, my true love is music and I have had my own rock 'n roll bands (many years ago, sigh). I now enjoy hosting all the wonderful and interesting travelers/adventurers who book their stays with me. It is my dream to go to Europe for 2-3 weeks later in 2014, and stay in Airbnb places and revisit some of the really cool guests who have stayed with me :-} News on my end is my former husband Michael and I have reunited after 42 years, and he now enjoys the hosting experience with me, as well as helping tremendously with the workload a 5 acre property entails. What a blessing he is! I guess the moral of this story is it's never too late for love :-]
Our home is convenient to Hwy. 41, and just 5 miles from a large casino that has great all-you-can-eat buffets and some specialty restaurants, yet it is peaceful and quiet here. This location is approx. 30 miles from the Yosemite Nat'l. Park gate, 30 miles to Fresno, and 25 miles to Bass Lake. We are friendly, young at heart, quiet, love animals and most non-overly opinionated people, and enjoy growing plants and trees. I really enjoy meeting, chatting, and hosting new people of all ages and countries. In my spare time I love to read - mostly magazines like the Smithsonian, Discover, Wired, and various art magazines. Once read, these magazines are put in the rooms for visitors. And last, I love watching the amazing advances of technology, robotics, artificial or accelerated intelligence, and even at my age, I still love rock 'n roll, Santana, Elton, Whitney Houston, Bonny Raitt, Rolling Stones, Journey, Foreigner, etc, altho I don't play it loudly, don't worry :-) Michael was also a musician and in the music industry in one form or the other for most of his adult life. We love meeting new people from all walks of life and sharing our home with friendly guests.
We sincerely look forward to meeting you!
