Likes theatre(I recently took an acting course), singing (I sing in a choir), sailing (we have a 33 ft sailboat and just spent some time chartering in the British Virgin Islands), skiing(most recent ski trips were to Big White, BC and Sun Valley, Idaho), reading (Geraldine Brooks is a great author of historical fiction), gourmet cooking, and keeping fit. Semi-retired social worker in adoption. Travels have taken us to South Africa, Botswana, Hawaii, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Turkey,New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Malta, British Isles, and various countries in Europe. My husband (of 45+ yrs) and I have two daughters, one of whom lives and works in the performing arts in California, the other in Toronto. We have always had people staying with us in our home in Toronto, ever since our kids were very little. Our guests have all been very happy with their stay with us and some have stayed more than once. We have been welcomed as guests in other homes on many occasions.
