Jacquelyn & Michelle – We live to Cruise!


We both love to travel and we have a great time when we travel together.  Our first cruise together was the summer of 2006 when we cruised from Seattle to Alaska.  Our group consisted of 6 ladies – Michelle and Jacquelyn, Grandma, Aunt Ande, Cousins Junith and Blythe.  What a great trip!

March 2008 – We spent a few days in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic before our cruise and spent the day with a local guide, touring the area – beautiful churches, Los Tres Ojos caves, and the Christopher Columbus lighthouse.

We joined 11 other ladies from across the country for a Ladies Only Cruise.  We sailed from the Dominican Republic to the Southern Caribbean, soaking up the sun and the island life.
