About Us

We are retired and spend most of the "gardening months" up the coast, growing our own vegies and harvesting seafood. We also have a garden apartment in Vancouver. We love to travel in the spring, fall and winter. We have traveled extensively in Mexico.

More about us

We are interested in spending time in southern Ontario, Quebec, Chicago, New York, Scotland, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Eastern Europe. We don't mind visiting great cities in the winter, but prefer fall and spring for touring countrysides.
