In A Nutshell
I love spending time outdoors... camping, hiking, biking, kayaking and snowshoeing in the mountains, lakes and coastal regions of NH and Maine. While I am content enjoying these on my own, I believe that the true beauty found in nature is best when shared with a loving companion ... so, won't you please come out and play with me?
I also treasure spending a relaxing day and evening indoors, sharing wine and conversation as we fix dinner, and as an 'old fashioned woman', I love totally pampering a nice man.
A self-confessed hopefully romantic sappy girly chick, I am an eternal optimist, enjoying witty banter and in depth conversation on a myriad of topics, intellectually curious, loving life, and quick to laugh at myself. I've been told that I neither look nor act my age, and I cherish my continuing childlike wonderment at all to be found in this beautiful world.
Loving travel, my 'bucket list' of places yet to explore include: BVI, Provence, Tuscany, Ireland and England, river cruises through Europe, exploring the quiet back roads of NE, and RVing/camping through the national and provincial parks.
I am low maintenance and easy going, yet possessing a youthful high energy approach to the many simple joys and wonders of life.
The One I Am Looking For
I seek that 'special' connection with someone truly unique ... an upbeat, honest, intelligent, spontaneous, energetic yet easy-going, warm, caring, affectionate, and romantic best friend and lover.
You are playful, affectionate (a great kisser), adventurous, with a great sense of humor, easily able to laugh at life and yourself. You believe in the importance of communication, openness and honesty, and are easily able to share your thoughts and dreams. You love the outdoors, and appreciate the value of remaining fit, both intellectually and physically.
You have endured some ups and downs in life, as have we all, and have worked them through, learned a few valuable lessons along the way, and have no excessive baggage, wisely leaving the past behind. Now, you eagerly look forward to what the future might hold -- for you, for me, for us.
I'd Just Like to Add
We are both somewhat independent, having lived on our own following long relationships and are not truly lonely in our aloneness, yet now seek the joyful friendship and loving companionship of a like minded soul, realizing that each experience is enhanced when shared with someone special. We are invigorated at the chance to meet someone new, and to experience love once again.
After a very long absence from the dating sites, I am eager to find a playmate and companion. I have recently retired and will spend my summers in Wells, Maine, and hope to escape to a warmer climate for a couple of months each winter. Let's throw a cross country camping trip and perhaps a first time trip to Italy, Ireland, and a European river cruise into the mix to keep life interesting. Please come and join me as we make some wonderful memories together - the best is yet to be!

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
I love the simple pleasure of hiking the woodland trails, savoring the silence of the woods and the sounds of cascading brooks and waterfalls. There is something so very special about a walk in the woods or along a beach, that is reflective and calming, yet also so highly energizing.
I love exploring the beautiful New England region, and long to take a cross country camping trip to visit the national and provincial parks. A winter getaway to Florida or the Caribbean might be nice, as would a Europen river cruise. Please come and join me ... I know we'll have fun!
I derive great satisfaction from my volunteer work with various conservation and land trusts, the Ogunquit Playhouse, and various civic groups.
