Meet the newest Diva:

Last year she took her first trip out of the country and visited Cuba.  She loved it so much that she went to Mexico this year.  Now she’s interested in finding out just what Huron County has to offer; she’s looking for adventure in her backyard.  Christine enjoys trying new cuisines, being out in nature and anything related to healing and alternative health.

Growing up in northern Huron County, Diva Sophie Jefferson has always thought of “Lake Affect” snow as a blessing.  When the white stuff is on the ground, she enjoys a variety of winter activities and has recently started curling more than her hair.  In the warmer seasons, Sophie is a binge seasonal vegetable eater and avid beach-goer.  A boom box and football are standard equipment for trips to the lake and she’ll never turn down a flavour of ice cream she hasn’t tried on the way home.

“I am new to Goderich and Huron County – only here 23 years but mostly know who’s related to who,  so don’t make too many social faux pas anymore!  I worked for the provincial government, sometimes in the Goderich area,  for many years and am now happily retired. I love living in a small town, and a rural community, enjoying all that Huron County has to  offer- theatre, dining, hiking, sailing, the beaches (not in February), etc.  I love that a traffic jam is having 2 cars ahead of me on the turn signal at the 5 Points, and no parking meters!  I love that in a small town, if I forget what I did or where I went last week, somebody will be able to tell me! I love the way the community, including our elected officials, responded to the tornado and how the town looks better than ever, thanks to the involvement of Goderich citizens.  Goderich and Huron County is a great place to live. The opportunity to travel the entire county and share my experiences as a Travel Diva is a grand adventure!”

    I tried to send this post once so my apologies if this posts twice! My friend and I had shot a similar concept to this as you will see on the travel section of Solomag.com. Love what you’re doing and wondered if you’d be interested in letting me post some of your adventures on http://www.solomag.com – an online lifestyle magazine for single and independent women.

    Cheers!
