Married to my best friend, I am newly retired and looking to travel the world. Sailor, wine aficionado and gourmet cook. My wife and I enjoy travel, time with family, gardening, reading, and all sorts of good food. I grew up on a vineyard in Northern California, and have lived up and down the Pacific Flyway. We live on 2 acres, on a rocky and rural island in the Puget Sound, a short ferry ride from Seattle, Washington (USA). After nearly 10,000 ferry rides commuting to/from work, the only time I want to leave our Island is to go to someplace interesting and fun. We love walking our Yellow Labrador on the beach, and we look forward to spending more time on our sailboat.
