Love the Caribbean and try to get a week there at least every other year. Lots of great places in the USA I haven't seen yet. I'm more drawn to natural wonders than man-made, so I'm not as attracted to NYC and Vegas as I am to Yellowstone and Sedona. Occasional visits to wineries can be fun, and make great day trips. Love Autumn best. Beautiful colors.
I'm a pretty good photographer and cook, but again, I don't live it. Enjoy all kinds of music except rap and opera. My Ipod runs the gamut from country to pop, current music all the way back to one or two songs from the 1930s.
I have two dogs, mutts I acquired from the animal shelter. They're fun, but I'm not obsessed with them, though I have taken them through training and occasionally take them to one of the area dog parks to run & play. I also take them hiking on occasion, but there aren't a lot of places that allow you to do that off-leash, which is my preference.
My personal aspirations include finding a special someone with an optimistic, yet realistic bent, with whom I can enjoy life's adventures.
