Nice Blog!
Very nice! The cover picture of you two is great...and the one with Kelli is stunning. It's funny, we both used the Voyager as a start-off, but different views. I think your family and friends will really like your Travel Blog.

Got it!
Doug - I did get your blog on my Sotheby's email so use whichever you choose. FYI - in college I use to have a class in the Beach Boys lead singers home in Manhattan Beach. His girlfriend was a friend of mine and the group use to do ad-hoc concerts on fraternity row when they topped the charts. Mike looks a tad older in your photos... don't we all.
