Peoria, Illinois.....yes, Illinois, where our Governors make our license plates
I live on a canal and am interested in kayaking, but I also love most anything outdoors, especially boating, fishing, and golfing. Not into biking, but I may be persuaded and would like to give volleyball a try. Cookouts, happy hour, comedy clubs.....any type of social activity works for me, as I really enjoy meeting new people....the toughest part of moving here was to leave so many of my lifelong friends, and I'm hoping to make some new acquaintances.
I've been visiting Naples for 25 years and finally retired from teaching (and other stuff). I moved here permanently in October to be closer to my 92 yr old dad who lives in Countryside, and my son and grandson who live in Cape Coral.
This was my first activity, and I'm looking forward to many more...what a great alternative to going to a bar.....you're immediately introduced to like minded people. Met many nice folks, and thanks to Marie for organizing!
