We are Canadians and are both retired. My husband, Ken, has been retired for about 6 years after working as a professonal accountant in his own firm for 44 years. I retired from the University of Victoria in April 2010 where I worked in administration in the Computer Science Department. We like to travel and play golf, although the latter seems to always be a work in progress! Ken enjoys snorkeling and I like to sit on the beach and read a good book. We enjoy exploring new places. Over the past 20 years we have spent October or November in Palm Desert, California but because this year is a special anniversary we wanted to do something different. We honeymooned on Maui and have returned many times but have never experienced Kauai. We are really looking forrward to a Hawaiian getaway, especially this year because of our 40th and because we are in the midst of planning our youngerst daughter's wedding which takes place in September and we will probably want to "catch our breath". We are a quiet couple, but do enjoy socializing and meeting new people. I love shopping!
