He joined the Belladonna Cove Nature Center Hiking Series for something to do on weekends and was immediately smitten with the hike leader Naenae Phillipine. She was not so taken with him, though. It took several tries for her to agree to go out with him but Zachary was persistent (he even slept on a bench outside the nature center until she agreed to a date.) They hit it off well and she finally warmed to his quirky charms. A few dates later she agreed to move in with him though he has yet to pop the question.
Naenae is a homebody with a deep love of nature and a passion for cooking (particularly grilled cheese sandwiches). Her dream is to have 6 children and see them all happily married with children of their own.
