70, Fisheries biologist
70, Horsewoman and gardner
We are an active couple who live on a small farm in western Washington state. Rich is a fishery scientist by trade and leads a non-profit organization working on global fishery sustainability. JoAnn is a retired fisheries technician and now a print artist, gardener and horsewoman. We do not have many animals at the moment - 2 horses and a cat but over the years we have also had many horses, dogs, cats and raised sheep, chickens, geese, ducks, peacocks, guinea fowl, etc. We love nature and are active hikers, bird watchers, and gardeners. We have a special affinity for the sea and love open spaces. We cut firewood on our property as a primary heat source in the winter. We enjoy nature and have a great diversity of birds, deer, coyotes and other animals on our property of over 50 acres. Rich often house sits alone as Jo Ann has animals to take care of at home, but sometimes we sit also as a couple depending on needs and circumstances.
