Date men from Canada / British Columbia / Mill Bay, 62 year old

Date someone special from Mill Bay, Canada. A widower following a 30 year happy marriage, who wants someone by his side, to share thoughts, laughs, closeness and companionship with. Also need someone that can respect the need to be alone at times, and someone that can also enjoy silence even if together.
Looking for an outgoing, optimistic partner to share life with, someone that can teach me to cook, and will let me cook with her, and someone to long for and miss when away.
Want to share quiet evenings, good food in home or out, travel to interesting places near and far, good music and concerts, musicals, and operas. Also like a great hockey game. Like to explore museums and art galleries, as well as anitque shops and the occasional country fair and flea market.
I am a long time philatelist and can be found hovering over my desk sorting stamps from different countries and adding them to my collection. Also is an enthusiastic fan of older Swedish cars - the now dead SAAB and have one of their two-seater sports cars which I restored completely - and aim to get driveable again. I like being outdoors for walks and hikes, not much into camping, but enjoy the occasional fly-fishing day in a nice river on a sunny summer day.
