Over the decades that I have lived in Northern California, Marin County has always been my favorite place. The exquisite combination of spectacular natural beauty with the best in cultural events, and exciting dining and shopping, makes for a truly fine quality of life. For relaxation, I really enjoy going for a walk with a friend on the Tennessee Valley Trail to the Pacific Ocean, or exploring the ranches and rolling hills of West Marin. Art films at both the Lark and the Rafael Theaters provide endless enrichment. Fine food is a passion and there's just no limit to experiencing a rich variety of cooking styles, all within 20 minutes of home. My favorite organizations are the Outdoor Art Club in Mill Valley, Marin Agricultural Land Trust based in Pt. Reyes Station, West Marin, the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, and the Global Fund for Women based in San Francisco.
