About Me

I live close to the water. I enjoy walking on the beach and being outdoors. I also love going out on our boat.

We have a camper and like to travel around visiting national, state and local parks.

I am a Master Naturalist and enjoy anything nature and environmental related. I help with environmental programs for school aged children.

I also love to garden (vegetables and flowers).

I work and volunteer at a railway museum as an exhibit interpreter.

I have a rescue beagle who have trained me well! I lost my cat Onyx in December 2023. I had her for over 15 years and miss her.

I like to pen pal and have done it since I was a preteen.

I love lighthouses. I like to visit them and also collect them. I have a lighthouse decorated room.

I also collect tea pots. I am a tea drinker and enjoy trying different teas.

I also enjoy exchanging postcards. I like the following types of postcards: lighthouses, tourist, covered bridges, city, state, province or country, and maps. I also love receiving love postcards that represent the area that they are sent from. I also like to exchange keychains and frig magnets.

I love learning about different cultures/areas, people's lives, hobbies and interests. Trying foods from different areas is one of my favorite things to do.

Favorite Television

NCIS, Criminal Minds, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Mandolorian, and Jeopardy, I also like shows like Forensic Files and Investigation TV. I am currently watching Death and other Details and the Great British Baking show.

Favorite Crafts

I like counted cross stitch. I have also started making my own envelopes I like receiving things to decorate letters and envelopes (stationary, stickers, washi tape, and other embellishments.) Different color pens or stamps are also good. I have also starting embossing and using die cuts.

I also like painting ceramics. I consider myself a craft generalist. I find it fun to try new crafts; although not always successfully.

About Me

Please let me know if you do not receive my swap. I honor my swaps. Thanks.

Likes/Dislikes

I am a tea drinker. I do not like coffee. I do not like licorice/anise teas. I prefer stronger teas.

I also have a collection of washi tape and stickers. I love all different kinds except for reward/school related stickers or ones with letters/numbers only.

I would ask that no religious or Easter items or quotes be sent to me. Religion is a private thing for me.

I rarely wear make up or nail polish so prefer not receiving it. I do like lotions and shower gels.

I like receiving things that represent the area that you live in.

Favorite Books

I love reading mysteries and suspense novels. I also have read all of John Grisham's novels. I also enjoy reading most of Nora Robert's books.

Favorite Music

I listen to classic rock and country music. My favorite band is the Eagles. I love Hotel California. I also enjoy other groups from the 60s and 70's.

I like a lot of different country groups, .

About Me

I love to travel. My goal is to visit all 50 US states. I also want to visit most if not all US national parks and monuments.

Comment: Thank you for joining my swap and sharing your answers. I enjoyed reading them. It is so interesting to read about others travel experiences, where they have been and how they like to travel. I am always afraid that my luggage will disappear. Luckily it never happened before. I agree, my favourite part of travelling is to explore something new, cultures, sughts, food, nature and get in contact with locals. It is so much fun.

Comment: Thank you for the elephant card and facts. We have 2 very very senior girls at our zoo. Tembo is an African elephant. She is about 54. Cora is an Asian elephant and she is 65. Cora just lost her last tooth so now her caretakers have to grind all of her feed and hay. They live much longer when they are well taken care of than in the wild.
Response: That is great that they are living such a long and well cared for life!

Comment: Thank you for your nice note and the lovely PCs. I'm going to mark Chesapeake Beach on my 'road trip' map. The next time we head south on a road trip, we can skirt Washington to the east and visit the museum. We have the Chatham RR museum near here , which is also housed in a nice old wooden station. Its history is much like your stations is... a short-line railroad getting passengers to the beach.
Response: That would wonderful if you get a chance to visit the railway museum here. We also have 2 lighthouses that are fun to visit. I need to check out the Chatham rr.
