My wife (Nan) and I (Tom) have lots of family and friends. We like meeting new people and enjoy good conversation. Nan is from a large, distinguished family and she has a scientific bent and loves animals and the outdoors. Ask her about her carefree days on the hippy trail in Asia. I find it hard to disguise the fact that I taught Humanities, Psych and World History at San Rafael High. I also am a piano player, bassist and book speakers for the Marin Philosophical Society where Ioften lecture. I'm especially interested in a cross cultural approach to the meaning of life.
If you want privacy we are happy to stay in the background and just be there for you if you need us.
Most weekday mornings, Nan and I are out around 8am with our dogs climbing to the top of the ridge between San Anselmo and the Terra Linda part of San Rafael. There are breath-taking 360 views of Marin and even to SF and the East Bay. At a moderate pace our route takes about 90 minutes. We've had some guests join us; it's fun.
We have 2 little dogs—Franny--an adorable Terrier, Shitzu mix--and Mrs Fiona Miller, an odd mini-Poodle. They are cute and lovable and are in and out of the backyard as they wish. They don’t shed and won’t be in your room if you keep the inside door closed.
In Nan's lovely pond, we have about 50 or so Koi, Goldfish and Shubunkin.
We expect our guests will treat our property as they do their own: with care and respect. Smoking is not allowed in doors.
