Ric and I are baby boomers who have permenent health issues that slow us down, but we are still putting our right foot forward, living. We spend time between Kingsville Ontario and Wilberforce, Ontario with a little travel here and there when available. We are willing to share our little piece of paradise in order to help off set living costs. We are a live and let live couple who expect others to treat our place with kindness. Remember this is a septic so careful on toilet paper usage, don't flush other paper products, conserve water use within reason. Enjoy our fabulous well water. Great drinking.
Respect our beautiful environment. Recycle, compose, follow by-laws
I enjoy life and try to engage when I can in many activities. Walking is a daily necessity, the rest (quilting, jewlery, writing, painting, kayaking) as I can including a little travel. Ric enjoys the sounds of nature, carpentry, his classic car, reading and travel. We are both warm weather people leaving with respective serious Heath issues
