Welcome Family and Friends!

Thank you for visiting our honeymoon registry. We know this registry is a bit unorthodox, but since we have been so fortunate to have a lot of the "essential home items," we felt this would fulfill our greatest wish. We hope you find this registry to be a way to help us make our honeymoon come true. By contributing here you will help us revisit the site of our first real vacation together in San Diego, CA. Josie and I had planned her birthday trip, in April, to destinations in San Diego and a cruise to Mexico, via Holland America(I have never been on a cruise). I proposed to Josie on Valentines Day, and so we decided to make our trip a honeymoon too!

We have decided not to have a large wedding, just an intimate witnessing of our vows. Our honeymoon will be another opportunity for us to create memories that we will cherish and look back on for years to come. We will do our best to document our experience via photographs and share it with you when we return. Please don't feel obligated to contribute to our registry; we are grateful for your love and support, and to have you all in our lives is our true gift.



Much love,
Norm and Josie

We're going to 7-DAY Holland American Cruise and San Diego!

1st Stop: San Diego, CA Ship:
Here we will board Holland American (Ship: ms Oosterdam )

2nd Stop: Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

No longer the well-kept secret of the artists, writers and Hollywood stars who first "discovered" it in the 1960s, "PV" (as it is affectionately known) still retains the essence of the quaint fishing village it once was. Here is Viejo Vallarta, the quaint Old Town, An enticing mix of red-tiled buildings, cobbled streets, chic shops and bustling open markets. Here are Mismaloya Beach, Gringo Gulch and Conchas Chinas, the Beverly Hills of Vallarta. Nearby: the rugged canyons and luxuriant jungles of the Sierra Madre. Sample shore excursions: Countryside on horseback, Dolphin encounter; Town, Country & Tequila; Sea Lion Encounter; Eco-safari Off-road Adventure; Canopy Adventure.

3rd Stop: Mazatlan, Mexico

Home of the largest shrimp fleet in the world, this cosmopolitan resort city tempts with every variation of this tasty crustacean: grilled, al mojo de ajo (with garlic), or in the shell with a tangy squeeze of lime. Other temptations: miles of uninterrupted sandy beaches, busy markets, and sleepy mining towns tucked into the Sierra Madre. Sample shore excursions: Deluxe City Tour with Papantla Fliers; Old Mazatl n Walking Tour; Deer Island Kayak; Sierra Madre; Concordia & Copala.

4th Stop Cabo San Lucas, Mexico


At the tip of the Baja Peninsula, where the blue Pacific mingles with the Sea of Cortez in a whirl of watercolors. Even more spectacular: waters teeming with marlin, swordfish, sailfish, tuna and other fighting fish. Feast your eyes on exquisite black coral; take in the annual migration of the gray whale. Sample shore excursions: Deluxe Coastal Cruise & Whale Watch; Half-day Sportfishing Adventure; Sea Kayak & Snorkel Adventure; Beach Horseback Ride.

5th Stop
San Diego, California, US
We will spend a week here, before returning home to Chico, CA.

Sunshine and fun are business as usual taking a cruise from San Diego. Walk on Coronado Island's sandy beach, take in the Old Town that brings the city's early Spanish days to life, have a wild time at the famous San Diego Zoo or a whale of a good time at Sea World. Sample shore excursions: San Diego Tour.
