I've been teaching decorative painting for over 25 years, specializing in photo realism and florals.
My husband (who has been sailing for over 40 years) and I have, currently, 2 sailboats, a 28 and 44 foot. Being in Michigan, the Great Lakes, mainly Lake Huron and southern Lake Superior, is our realm.
Our son, 21, is a fireman, and bitten by the sailing bug as well. He's been a part of racing teams in the Great Lakes races.
I'm a 'mature' female, looking for some mental excercise and a little escape.
