My husband and I live in Boquete, Panama - a charming town in the coffee growing region of Panama, not too far from the border with Costa Rica. We moved here with our sweet dog Maggie, a Labradoodle, and embarked on a great retirement adventure - improving our Spanish, learning about the wonderful Panamanian culture, becoming "inn keepers" in the process.

I make and teach art in my art studio. I give classes on silk painting, and also do watercolor, acrylic and work with polymer clay. The setting here in Boquete is so stimulating and inspirational - such an array of colors. Mort, an attorney, is known as The Rye Guy. He bakes the most incredible artisan bread in a wood fired clay oven that we built! Our new bakery, Morton's Bakehouse, opened in 2013. Sign up for a bread class at the bakery!

We enjoy welcoming visitors to our Cottage by the River, sharing information about life in Panama and insider tips about Boquete. Because our home is in town, we can walk to the market, restaurants, cafes and shops. And when the wood oven is fired up, we enjoy having our friends drop in for some fresh bread or a pizza.
