I'm retired after 32 years, and I am loving life. I look younger than my age, I'm told. I am Peruvian and Costa Rican by heritage.
I raised three cool kids who are my pride and joy, I have two wonderful daughters-in-law, and thank God, my first grandson was born in April 2013! He is precious!
I've traveled to many places...Italy, Spain, France (twice), England, Ireland, Scotland, Costa Rica, Fiji, Alaska, Kauai, and Mexico. What I'd really like is to explore more of San Francisco with someone fun and special. There's so much to see and do, and so little time. It would be great to have someone special and interesting to hang out with, and enjoy doing fun things.
I LOVE dogs, and as much as I look forward to owning one again, I am happy with my cat, Samantha. I enjoy music (soft rock, hard rock, jazz, blues, guitar, piano). I also enjoy 49er games, gardening and especially my cymbidium orchids, barbecue, (love sushi and sake), swimming, hiking, German Shepherds, cats, canaries (I used to breed them), salsa dancing (I took classes... such fun!), classic cars, games, movies and popcorn, theater, concerts - first saw The Beatles in '65 and last concert I saw The Eagles.
I love walking in the park, and on the beach, and who doesn't love a sunset! I love dog-walking at Fort Funston, Stow Lake, Lake Merced (son's dog, Tank, (100 lb) my grand puppy/bodyguard).
Dinner with a view is great in our beautiful Bay Area. I was born in San Francisco, and raised in the Sunset District, and I raised my three kids there too... Huge 49er fan! I'm fairly adventurous. I am a little girl at heart, love to laugh, and love good humor.
On the deeper side, I am almost done reading a great book, "THE FIVE LEVELS OF ATTACHMENT". Toltec Wisdom for the Modern World. By Don Miguel Ruiz Jr.
Wow! Excellent realizations in that. Highly recommend it.
Be present, and enjoy the journey.
Be still, and know that I Am God.
But, enough about me...
You ... ?
... easy going, kind, intelligent, smart, thoughtful, trustworthy, fun and funny, faithful, honest man, lover of God, close in distance, who appreciates the company of a happy, smart, confident, content and independent woman.
Chemistry is everything though, so until we meet...
Photos much appreciated.
People who shine from within don't need a spotlight.
