As hosts Shelby and I share a love of meeting and interacting with people and making everyone comfortable. If you need peace and quiet you find it here. If you want to learn about our island we have stories to tell. Shelby has traveled the world and I have seen the world thru the eyes of a film editor.
I enjoy teaching knitting during knitting retreats and love sharing my collection of knitted treasures and patterns. Love music, movies from all over the world – subtitles if need be – travel, mostly by car, but also solitude and peace. Languages: German and English.
live and let live!!
