About Me


To pursue all my interests, in as leisurely a fashion as I can: gardening, traveling (of course), birdwatching, classical music (Early Music), reading, yoga (Kundalini), and my grandchildren.


See "current mission" above. In addition, I am currently president of the Canadian section of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom.
Note for surfers: We go to bed early and, while we love to have a meal with you, we do look forward to some quiet time after dinner for reading, listening to music, or watching TV to unwind from the day. Also, I regret to say we don't drink coffee so if it's really important to you, bring your own.
We love to see the souvenirs from your country but we're really trying to cut down on clutter, so if you do want to bring something, please make it consumible. It doesn't have to be from home; tea, chocolate, wine, pastries, or the like are always appreciated.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We've hosted people from Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Mexico, Guatemala, Australia, Oregon and Washington State. We've had wonderful experiences staying with hosts in Spain, Ecuador, and Washington State.


We travel extensively; like hiking, birdwatching, culture, music (especially early music), gardening, working for social justice.
