    We are Sylvie and John, we bougt our place tree years ago, it's a new house on 2ha. with a nice pond.
    I am 51 years old and came to Canada four years ago from The Nederlands.
    My wife is Canadian and succesfull in her work, and travels a lot. 2-6 weeks at a time.
    We have two lovely dogs and no kids.
    We are easy going and young at heart, like to take it easy and enjoy every day.
    Start work early and quit early to have a cold one on our patio.
    Like our privacy from time to time and love my vintage car.
    Like to make trips to town to sit by the water front and talk to people. I just started my own little Moving and Hauling business and also do some Pet-transport.
    We are in an aria with a lot of mosquitoes over a period of about 5 weeks ( last week of may and the whole of June) We stay behind screens and wear protection when outside. The rest of the year is no problem.
