I call New Bern, NC home, been here since 1988. Almost a NC native except the first 3 years of my life spent in Maryland. I love traveling, I am an extensive travel planner and like to experience a place as if I'll not return again....too many other wonderful new places to see. I am recently retired after 38 years of nursing. Photography is my passion, I love gardening, especially flowers, I love anything in nature. My traveling usually focuses around natural beauty....mountains, lakes, coast, always in search of places of solitude...but I also enjoy some city exploring. My partner Dan, and I make a good travel team, I'm the planner, he's the navigator. I'm a good cook, Dan likes all kinds of food. Dan is a musician ( he sings and plays the harmonica), I like to experience all kinds of music. As your guests we will be respectful of your property, we'll enjoy visiting with you and getting to know your part of the world.
