Former executive director of a public art gallery and author of 4 history books. We live on an old farm overlooking the sea, where we raise a few cows, sheep, turkeys. I'm travelling with my long-time partner Gerry Cote.We're keen kayakers (touring among the many islands that surround us) and hikers. We're both avid readers with good senses of humour, history buffs, looking forward to some great theatre, museums, galleries in London and then some multi-day walks in the English countryside. This will be our fourth trip to Britain. We're looking for a quiet and interesting place to stay, not too far from the center of the city.
