My husband and I are retired but very active. We live near the beach on the central coast. We are South of Santa Barbara.and North of Los Angeles We like adventure and new experiences when we travel. We are very picky when it comes to what our hotel looks like. We often travel with our English Springer Spaniel so it is important to have the right place for him. Ideally there should be lawn, etc. We do not do luxury travel but like to do different locals. We also exchange houses.We have done three exchanges, including Germany.We like to get a good value for our money.At home we have volunteered as naturalist on Whale boats and my husband is a master gardner and volunteers at an expiermental farm run by U.C.
