Rocking Chair Renegades: Roz Wyndham

A Rocking Chair Renegade is a woman over 50 who: refuses to let age define her and is not afraid of showing the lines of life on her face… believes that the fountain of youth springs from her mind… is wise, funny, active, engaging, valuable, beautiful and definitely not finished!

Roz Wyndham

Lives: Pawleys Island

Family: My husband of 32 years, Roger, and daughters Allie, Sarah and Mattie.

Occupation: I am the cook and owner of Roz’s Rice Mill Café in the Hammock Shops of Pawleys Island.

Hometown: I was born in New Bern, North Carolina, and lived in the Washington D.C. area, Cleveland, Ohio, and Missoula, Montana, before moving to Pawleys Island when I was 19.

Age: I’m 57 years old with a 24 year old outlook on life!

Activities: boating, walking and the beach

Loves: my family, cooking and traveling

Laughs: I crack up watching one of our family dogs, Schooner, run laps around the house when you clap for him. Schooner is part poodle, part cocker spaniel.

Favorite Meal: anything with peanut butter—the staple of life

Perfect Day: when the sun is shining and everyone around me is in a good mood

Reads: I don’t read as much as I used to—right now I’m reading Merle’s Door, Lessons from a Free-Thinking Dog, by Ted Kerasote.

Spirit: The contentment I get from my customers coming back over and over again…I get my energy for life through what I do. I look forward, not back. I have had Roz’s Rice Mill Café for 15 wonderful years, but I think one day I’d like to begin again with a simpler, more laid back establishment. I just haven’t decided where! I consider myself an A.C.E. (Atlantic Coast Local) and would be happy from Bar Harbour to Key West.

Gets Excited: when I travel…anywhere

Aging: It’s a natural part of life. I have no qualms about getting older. As we age, I feel we really do realize what’s important and learn not to sweat the small stuff.
