My husband and I are retired educators with a passion for family, friends, travel, food, sailing and art. Our connection with Rockport spans over 40 years. My parents built the home where we now live.
We have always loved to travel. We have been around the world and to Europe many times. Who knows where we will go next?
Sharing good food, drink and conversation with friends is one of our favorite activities. I belong to a local gourmet group and enjoy trying new recipes. I also enjoy painting and have been showing and selling my work since 2002.
Did I say that I love the water? I know how lucky we are to live in Rockport. Whether it's walking the length of Front Beach collecting sea glass, lounging at Old Garden Beach or cruising the Maine coast, nothing is more relaxing than being on the water.
We enjoy meeting new people. I speak French, am learning Italian, and can communicate a bit in Spanish. We look forward to helping our Airbnb guests make the most of their visit to Rockport.
