Travel and Family:

The photos, movies, and journals are from our travels and family gatherings. Our large family is scattered over five continents; sometimes we travel to visit family and sometimes our family travels with us — it's all good, either way.


Our most recent family event — Gabrielle’s and Jeffrey’s Wedding:

14-8190 The Kiss (GregS-0735)


Gabrielle and Jeffrey were married on December 7th in Kells Irish Pub in Portland. 








14-8232 Wedding Party (Z-8-682)




It was a great venue and ceremony and was followed by a fun reception with excellent music, food, drink and, of course, Voodoo Donuts.







Recent Travels — Eastern Europe in September and Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea in June:

In September, we took a Cal Discoveries Tour to Eastern Europe that began in Sofia, Bulgaria and ended in Prague, Czech Republic. Most of the tour was by boat on the Danube River. When the tour ended in Prague, we traveled on our own to Krakow, Poland. Jim and Corky drove to Passau, Germany and spent an afternoon with us there. They also flew to Krakow for the weekend. Tom, Peggy, and Bill met us in Prague on Gary/Dad/Grandpa’s 80th Birthday and traveled with us to Krakow. It was a great trip and was made even more special by having family join us along the way.
