I've been off the dating sites for a while but maybe this time will work. Recently retired from the City of San Diego and tried managing a restaurant in Florida. That gig didn't work so now I am busy working at being retired. I already have two retirements (I also retired from the Navy in '94) so I am not in a rush to get another job.
I have finally found a way to fix my aching back and end my constant sciatica. I had to give up running and dancing because of this. I work out 5 to 6 days a week and am swimming three miles a day right now. As I get fitter and drop the extra pounds, my attitude and energy improve.
Last summer I hiked the West Highland Way (97 miles in 7 days) in Scotland with three friends and discovered that I really enjoyed hiking. I'm off to England this summer to hike Hadrian's Wall (coast to coast across England). I love to travel and have been to 61 different countries. I owned a home in Nicaragua until last September and still go there to relax and recover. I would really like to find a permanent partner to share the wonders of different countries and cultures with. I've been to Burning Man the last two ears and had an incredible time.
I have taken years of dance lessons and helped teach west coast swing for a couple of years before the sciatica forced me to quit. I normally have season tickets to the Broadway series and thoroughly enjoy live theater. I have belonged to a wine tasting group for the past 20 years and have had the opportunity to try some incredible wine over the years. I recently started brewing my own beer with a couple of friends. I have a crazy Samoyed who is my best buddy and has a future as a therapy dog.
