I'm retired --- for the 2nd time as of April '09 and I think it will take this time. We maintain homes in Bellingham, Washington and St. Andrews By the Sea, New Brunswick, Canada and divide the year between the two.
Berry Point is a place that my avatar resembles fairly well, and we are fortunate to have our Canadian home there. We are often visited by eagles cruising low over the water near our deck. Ospreys, seals, porpoises, loons, and a large variety of other sea and shore birds are always nearby. We are fortunate indeed.
