We live in Santa Rosa, California. That's in the middle of wine country, just 60 miles north of San Francisco. We live in an adult community called Oakmont Village on the east side of Santa Rosa. Santa Rosa is a wonderful place we have called home for a long time. We are both retired and are enjoying retirement by traveling to Hawaii as often as we can. My love affair with Hawaii began over 40 years ago when I was in the Navy. My past military status provides me with access to many on or off base privileges in Hawaii. We feel very fortunate in having such an inviting place to come to for a change of pace.
