Originally from Los Angeles, Richard retired early from a career as a TV producer for PBS and Discovery Networks. With his wife Gwen, they bought and renovated a small hotel on Whidbey Island, WA. where we now live. Most summers we cruise the coastal waters of Washington and British Columbia in our 40' trawler, Northstar. Last summer we cruised the Inside Passage to Southeast Alaska. This year we are "land-cruising" in a 24' motorhome we call "Duckin' Out!"
