Craig Walls and Susan Green met 8 years ago in San Diego where each grew up. Early on they discovered that they both wanted to experience living in a different part of the country after spending their entire lives in Southern California. They spent time online exploring different areas in the PNW, and shortly after retirement they took a leap of faith and moved to Washington.
They picked Port Townsend after driving through it on a road trip the year before. Susan said the decision was easy. “It’s a charming town on the water and has three grocery stores." Craig was attracted to the waterways and mountains in the area, as well as the woodworking community. They’ve been in PT for 3 1/2 years.
C&S both left large families in San Diego and enjoy going back as often as possible.They went to SD for several months this winter and plan to make it an annual event.
Shortly after arriving in PT, C&S met Patti Rowdabaugh who introduced them to pickleball. They were hooked immediately and have thoroughly enjoyed the camaraderie and exercise that this great game offers.
C&S both like to garden, hike, golf and explore all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Craig is also into woodworking while Susan experiments with painting and various other crafts.
Craig and Susan think Port Townsend is a wonderfully welcoming community. They especially value the friendships they’ve made through pickleball. Craig serves as Treasurer on the Board and Susan serves on the Strategic Planning Committee.
These two are always smiling on and off the courts. When you see Craig or Susan, give them a big thank you for what they do for our club.
