I am recently retired and split my time between Olympia, WA and my handsome newish boyfriend's home in Mariposa, CA. I owned a small environmental laboratory which my sister, kindly bought from me. I still work a little, but mostly I live to hike, kayak and dance. My partner, Hank Delamare, is a carpenter and a musician. We spend about half our time traveling and the other half making our life work.
