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 a few from the 1940s.
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.
