We are empty nesters, keeping up the sport and outdoor stuff. We are into sailing, skiing, tennis, cycling, running. Charlie is a Professor in Wildlife Management and I am a school software consultant. I work at home. We have 2 grown up children, one a restaurant/bar owner and the other a doctor, both living in Auckland. We came to live here in 1988 from England. We still travel back there every year or so and enjoy taking in a cycle or ski side trip in Europe.
We enjoy hosting people at our house in Nelson and sharing this rather fine character home!
