A little about me, I am outgoing and very personable, have a great sense of humor, as humor is the best medicine. I love to do anything outdoors, fishing, crabbing, hiking, walking my dog (Australian shepherd) and anything boat or water related. I am also fond of cooking, and challenging myself to create new and exciting meals, enjoy having friends over for dinner.
A good movie is always welcome, enjoy storms and I look forward to them, traveling and visiting new locations, my music tastes varies depending on what type of mood I am in, I have a broad range of genres I listen to.
I am boat crazy, I use "fishing" as an excuse to go boating. I do enjoy fishing, AND exploring our beautiful area by water.
I no longer frequent bars, and I am generally busy building my business empire...or boating/fishing, so online dating it is!
Catch me while you can....
If anything has sparked an interest, or if you would like to know more, I encourage you to send me a message!
Dog is my copilot...... And chaperone :)
