“Opening the next chapter in your life”

Retire like you have always dreamed.
The world is your oyster.


Did you know you can live in a warm tropical country at a fraction of the cost? Places such as Thailand, Ecuador, Vietnam, Portugal, and Mexico are much more affordable.


Your happiness begins with finding a healthy lifestyle just for you.

Traveling abroad opens your eyes to new cultures.

You’d be surprised how friendly other cultures can be.

Wine Country California

Napa and Sonoma Valleys are wine lover's heaven.   With 100,000 acres of land dedicated to the vine, if you can't find a bottle you like - you just aren't looking!   The climate is perfect for grapes - hot summers, a little fog, a little rain, and the tender care of...

Growing up in San Diego

I have really fond memories of growing up in California.  We moved from Detroit Michigan in 1950 when I was four years old.    My grandparents had already made the move the year before.   It didn't seem odd at the time that they were living in a home-built travel...

Retire in San Diego, California

Unlike her big sister Los Angeles, just 100 miles to the north, San Diego is relatively free of smog and much more laid back.   Her 1.3 million people live all over the county in vastly different communities.  While only 10.7% are over 65, many retirees have settled...

Portland Pedal Power!

Friends Steve and Susan have been retired for several years.   They parked their car in the garage and put it on a low voltage charger and pedal their bikes or take public transportation.   “It takes 1.5 hours to walk downtown.   It’s mostly flat, so we have an easy...

Washington….It’s so much more than rain!

When you think about Washington, most people think rain, Space Needle, coffee, rain, ferry boats, Pikes Place Market, and let’s not forget the rain! Locals know better. Although Seattle does have a lot of gray days, Seattle gets just 37 inches of precipitation per year, while NYC gets 49, Boston gets 42, Miami has 58 and parts of Hawaii get a whole lot more! The mountain peak in the Olympic Rainforest sees over 200 inches each year. What Washington does have is green green forests, 900 miles of waterway, 170 islands, mountains and farmland, the mighty Columbia River – and lots and lots of coffee!
