Stan works as an Manufacturing Engineer in Gainesville 3 hours away and I am a retired teacher. Most of the year one or both of us are on the island in our house as well as our family members. My favorite things to do are making pottery/crafts and jewelry...reading...walking the beach for sea shells or fossils and gardening. Stan likes to fish and kayak. We have two adult sons and the youngest made us promise we would always keep the island house .
