A Pacific Northwest beauty

Our home is situated on the south end of Whidbey Island, in the Pacific Northwest. We are about 1.5 hrs door to door ( including the car ferry) to Seattle, WA. The island is home to a remarkable group of professional and very interesting people who have come from all over the US to visit Whidbey then because of what they experienced, made arrangements to move here permanently. We thought our 'tenure' would be about 5 years. We have been here for 25. Our home has a stunning view of a bay and looks across the main Seattle shipping canal (we watch the cruise lines and commercial vessels coming and going) to the majestic Olympic Mts. on the Olympic Peninsula. The home itself is well appointed. We love to cook, so the kitchen is well equipped - there is huge amounts of outdoor space ( decking and furniture groupings and even a hot tub). It is a very peaceful place. We have a big master suite with adjoining office ( lots of desk space), another equally big guest suite, and a third bedroom with twin beds. Ample space to relax, work, rejuvenate. We love our home, we treat it with respect and would expect that others would do so as well. (We are non-smokers and insist that no smoking be done in the house as I have allergy issues with smoke).

About Me
I grew up my first 18 years of life living as an expat (father in industry. We lived in Egypt, Columbia, Peru, Switzerland and England. I came to the US for University, and have made my living and my life in the Pacific Northwest. I am a retired educator; first teaching, and then as a school principal. I have 3 grown children, all married, with children of their own ( a blessing). My husband is a retired architect and extraordinary fine wood craftsman. We adore the Pacific Northwest and all the accessible natural beauty as well as stunning natural parks and places to see and visit. We have travelled extensively (husband also grew up living overseas), love experiencing new cultures and places of historical and/or natural beauty ( I have a first degree in Anthropology) as well as meeting new people around the world. THIS keeps us grounded in a deeper reality of the interconnectedness of all people and living things on this special planet - especially when the current political situation seems to want us to 'hate' and/or feel fear of 'other'. At this age, we want to stay in one location for a longer spell so that we can experience living like the locals. And we believe our home on magical Whidbey Island can provide that experience to others as well.
