My wife, Adriana, and I have just built our new home over-looking the Monterrey Bay. We love nature, gardening, literature, music, the arts, photography, traveling, keeping up with the news and politics. We specifically love to learn about famous historical figures and love all the music of the 60's. Both of us are from academic backgrounds. Retiring into Santa Cruz area with many great restaurants and whales, seals, otter sightings makes it easy to enjoy the surroundings and easier to accept less traveling due to aging concerns. I was a special education professional in Orange County working with autistic young adults and an administrator of a school for neglected and delinquent teenagers in San Francisco and Adriana is from Europe where she was an actress, fashion model, broadcast narrator and a news announcer in Slovakia, Germany, and USA. She is an avid nature-lover and plants trees wherever she is, especially in fire devastated area in the USA and through Arbor Day Foundation depleted areas of the jungle forests around the world. Adriana is a linguist who speaks 6 languages fluently (English, Japanese, Italian, Slovak, German, Russian) and loves talking to new people of different cultural backgrounds and customs. We love this semi-rural sea breeze area living among our flower and tree garden, taking walks to the beach and experiencing acres of strawberry fields where herons, eagles, hawks and plenty of other birds give us company during the day and hearing all the owls and coyotes at night. When traveling we require separate, clean smoke free and pet free accommodations.
