After many years work in mechanical engineering, I retired so I could go sailing. I also enjoy a good game of squash, which I play throughout the year. When I'm home I like to share great meals and funny stories with my friends. This home is ideal for entertaining throughout the year and a great spot to gather your family and friends from around the globe.
I transferred to Nova Scotia in 1999, and was determined to make the most of 'Canada's Ocean Playground'. I started with kayaking and was later invited to go sailing. The instant I felt the sails fill with wind to carry us across St. Margarets Bay I was hooked, I had to stay. The hospitality and friendship of Nova Scotians is so compelling I decided to build a home on the ocean so that I could enjoy the bold views and peaceful surroundings as well as the people. I built my home in 2004 and have never looked back. Now I sail whenever possible, which is why I am able to share my home with you, especially in the Summer and Fall! Come and enjoy the comfort of my home and all that Nova Scotia has to offer.
Spending time in my home you will feel any stress of the day melting away. It is so peaceful and relaxing here. If you've never sat at the edge of the ocean and watched the waves roll in, you owe it to yourself to try it.
And at night, watch in wonder at the stars. They are so clear and bright out in the country.
