T. & T pro-am golf tournament each year. There is an abundance of golf courses in the area and a famous auto racetrack at Laguna Seca. The Monterey Bay aquarium is world renowned. The area is known as Steinbeck country and there is a museum in the city of Salinas. The area is also home to a number of wineries which are open to the public for tours.

The home is in a gated community called The Meadows located midway between Monterey and Salinas. The weather usually is quite mild so the area can be enjoyed year round. We have wonderful resturants near us. The Steinbeck Musuem is fifteen minutes away. There is a wild game park near us to visit. Lots of golf and tennis. The Lagunna Race track is also near us. Two hours away is the beautiful Hearst Castle which you can take tours through. Near by is a cute town called Cambria. The beach is about twenty minutes from us in Carmel.

We are a retired couple, Bruce and Linda. We have a large extended family which includes 7 children and 7 grandchildren. We are empty nesters who love to travel and explore new places. We often travel with another couple who are likewise retired and non-smokers. We are experienced home exchangers, having exchanged once in Germany and twice in Holland. The experiences were extremely successful. We are the type of people that respect another's home as if it were our own, and the people we exchanged with were likewise. We are open to a proposal for anytime or anyplace.
