What is your favorite outdoor activity?

It's hard to choose just one, but some other than hiking and walking are biking, kyaking, beaching, swimming, gardening. I used to play a lot of tennis, and would like to renew my skills. I have done a moderate amount of cross country skiing, and would like to snowshoe. I spent most of this past summer of 2011 in a seaside beach and fishing town. Being right at the ocean was delightful and continually refreshing and renewing.

Do you have a cherished childhood memory of a time you spent outdoors?

I grew up near the beaches in RI, and then near those in NJ. I loved summer camp with all the sports and activities and outdoor lore, campfires and canoe trips. I was a brownie and girl scout, and have many memories of happy times with those groups. I loved to ride my bike to quiet rural spots, and to climb up in a tree and read and imagine.


I'm an artist/art instructor. My artwork is often inspired by experiences in nature and my love of science and biology. I am interested in moderate hikes, dancing, music, theater, movies, books, cooking, yoga, and writing. Friends call me "Dottie".
