Just a wee slice of paradise and I always love to share my home and magnificent harbour and peninsula environment.
Marty has lived here for near on 30 years and has a wealth of local knowledge of history, environment and geology.
Marty is an ex-teacher now working from home. His two boys are now making their way in the world, so now we've got time to open up our home to others.
Marty has always enjoyed the harbour environment, learning to windsurf here in the early days, and subsequently sailing on small yachts to keelers in the many harbour and coastal events. His latest project is restoring a 1940's clinker built (lapstrake) launch called Puffin.
Marty is very involved in the local community, especially when it involves being on a boat on the water. He is currently the secretary of the local Broad Bay Boating Club.
You're welcome to visit the webpage he recently developed >> search Broad Bay Boating Club Dunedin.
He enjoys his coffee, from home roasting to pulling a fine crema cup.
Sometimes there's blood in his caffeine system!
Happy to be your host. :)
