I am a very outdoorsy person so spend as much of my time as I can outdoors. I enjoy walking my Welsh Sheepdog. I also enjoy foraging and sea fishing,wild camping and learning about wildlife. I have an interest in hunting and processing wild game as well. Photography is another hobby of mine and I mainly take photos of the landscape, nature and my dog. I also enjoy cooking, baking and making preserves from foraged goods.
