House in Santa Rosa, USA

Dear Home Exchangers. We live in Sonoma County, which is less than an hour's drive North of the Golden Gate Bridge of San Francisco. San Francisco is cool and foggy in the summer months. While our area is warm and sunny all summer. Our county is a land of agricultural bounty and world class wines; ancient redwood forests and secluded ocean coves and beaches and genuine small towns populated with independent thinkers and more than 300 friendly wineries, 40+spas, farm-to-tab le restaurants, art galleries, shops, rivers and trails that meander over oak-covered hills. We are famous for biking and hiking trails. The Pacific Ocean is fine for summer swimming with its beautiful sand beaches that stretch up and down the Coast.

About Our Family

My husband, Don, is 81 years old and walks with a cane. For the last 5 years he has been taking German lessons and we
have done 5 exchanges in German speaking countries. In total, we have done 16 exchanges over 25 years; two of them
were back-to-back in Europe. We like to go to classical music concerns, museums, lovely gardens, zoos and aquariums.
Judy, is 80, and likes to bike on exchanges and do all the above activities. Don wants to be in a big city for our 2016 exchange and close to public transportation...ie., bus or metro (subway) service. He does not want to have to walk up more than
2 flights of stairs to exchange family's apartment or home....prefers elevators to 3rd floor apartments. For all our exchanges,
except in Amsterdam, Don has had to drive a stick shift car and does not want to have to drive every day.

Lifestyle

We live in a small retirement village with lots of activities. Friends play golf across the street and sometimes eat at
the restaurant there. We like to walk in our neighborhood. Judy likes to ride her bike. Judy goes to aqua aerobics 3 times a
week and swims every day in one of the 3 swimming pools in our village. She and Don attend world affairs lecture weekly,
sometimes use the local gym. Judy likes to garden and belongs to the garden and Spanish clubs. We like to sit on our
front deck in the mornings and have coffee and look at the beautiful view of the mountains, green golf course and wineries.
In warm days, we like to eat dinner in our private backyard patio and watch the deer, rabbits, wild turkeys and quail roam
on our hillside (and eat our beautiful plants...haL ha..! Don likes to watch football and baseball on the T.V.
