I am a young at heart mother of 3 girls. I love the outdoors, healthy food, beautiful places, travelling, animals, nature, I am passionate about gardening and being creative, I paint watercolors, knit, cook, ride my bike, swim, run, walk and hike. My profession for the past 25 years till present is Landscape Design, but, before that I worked as a Treeplanter, a Camp cook for mining exploration companies and treeplanters and once upon a time I was a Hairdresser and co owner of an Outdoor Adventure company that took guests up to explore our precious BC coast and the Islands of Haida Gwaii by boat. I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC and I have traveled and worked travelled extensively all over Canada, through most Mexico, the USA, Borneo, Malaysia and Great Britain, but, I have so much more to see on this planet. I love where I live, my home is really laid back, funky and comfortable, it sits in a grove within a forest amidst a city as its neighbour. I have lived in this same house for 21 years and counting!
At this time we have our resident friendliest dog on earth, Shyla, ( passed away New Years Eve ,dec 31,2014 ,I had to write this for those who knew had her and were graced with her sweet presence for a tummy scratch )3 kitties, Pip, Clementine and White Spot, and 4 chickens, Rose, Quince,Midnight Oil, and Lovegood.
I have a couple of bikes for guests to use during their stay and if you want me to take you on a hike or walk into the local mountains, off the beaten track, beaches or something out of the ordinary, it would be a pleasure for me to do so, if our schedules work out that it's possible, just let me know.
