August 6, 2012: Two days after Megan’s and Mark’s wedding, the extended Cherry and Gmelin clans and a contingent of close friends gathered in Port Allen, Hawaii, for a boat tour of Kauai’s rugged and beautiful Nā Pali coast.

Portrait of my great-great-grandfather, Paul Heinrich Albert Gmelin AKA Albert Gmelin (1842-1903), with his mother, Christiane Luise Keppler Gmelin (1805-1867), c1850. At age 25, Albert left his native Pfullingen, Württemberg, arriving in New York on June 5, 1867. The first news he would have had from home was that his mother had died on June 2.
