Eric and I bought our home on Marco Island in 2010. Our primary residence at that time was Traverse City, MI where Eric practiced Neurosurgery for 34 years. I worked alongside Eric, managing his practice and assisting him during surgery. Marco became our permanent home in 2017, when Eric retired. I have also flown several kinds of aircraft, and hold an Airline Transport Pilots license. We are members of the Island Country Club and enjoy playing golf. We would like to become more active boaters and are looking forward to joining the Marco Bay Yacht Club and meeting other boaters and participating in as many boating outings as we can. We have boated for all 47 years of our marriage and lived the last 32 years directly on the Mississippi River where we raised our 3 children. During that time, we have owned over 10 boats from sail boats and jet skis to cabin cruisers and still have a runabout in Iowa. We own a small Whaler here in Florida which we just bought to teach our grandsons to boat, and a 28′ Formula both of which are parked on the canal at our home.
