Family Travels
The United States
We so enjoy traveling to Europe and Cruising the Caribbean, we
have done very little travel inside the United States.

Darlene (mom) traveled extensively as a teenager, camping
across the United States on month long camping/travel trips with
her family in the backseat of a station wagon, pulling a mid-size
camper.  She eventually visited all fifty continental states (except
Michigan due to a tornado in Wisconsin--long story)

Our children do need to explore the United States as a travel
destination.....give us some time.
Few people know that you can book cruise shore    
excursion with other operators than the cruise line.

We use Shoretrips and have had incredible adventures.

          Top Five Excursions

Beach and Snorkeling with the Sea Turtles

2.  St. Thomas--Renting our own powerboat....Gave us
