We enjoy sharing our home and chatting with guests about our travels. I have both a Home Economics and an Education degree and substitute in the local schools. I love to cook and try new recipes as well as spending my spare time doing handicrafts and stitchery projects. My husband raised purebred Angus cattle and was a cattle broker. We have travelled extensively throughout Canada and the U.S. as well as to Hawaii, Jamaica, Mexico, the Caribbean, England and France.Local Attractions*
