We believe in enjoying life! We love to travel and we love to host our guests. We enjoy nature, sightseeing, good music, good movies and good food. We both love boating on the lake and antique cars. We are always interested to learn about new people and places. Jim loves to fish and hunt. He is interested in architecture, gardening, and history. Sheryl loves to read, write, and practice yoga. She is interested in holistic healing and public health. Interesting fact about us: We were married aboard a boat by the Captain on Lake Pend Oreille (pronounced Ponderay) in Sandpoint, Idaho!
