We are the Cheema's...Jane and Inder. One from Canada, and the other from Kashmir, India. Came to Southport in 1978 in search of a home base as we worked mainly overseas, and as the saying goes, the rest is history. Retired from ExxonMobil in 2000. Children and grandchildren are with us every summer, so life is great.
Close to our home which is also on Southport; sounded like a challenging post retirement project, which it was.
Serenity of Southport Island, with the hustle and bustle of Boothbay Harbor and associated tourist activities, available at arms length or a 7 min driving time. Southport has it all : kayaking, boating, sailing, walking/hiking, biking or simply lying on our many decks, in the sun or rain, or whatever.
