Well, got some pics uploaded to a share. This winter, when I'm in more, I'll get more pics and stories posted.

In a word or two, we LOVED Aruba.

Our first day there, the Radisson hotel we stayed at was the smallest but the best. It's grounds were amazing and the sanctuary of birds they maintained was very cool.









Lots more pics to come

It's that time of year. Going to Aruba right after Thanksgiving.

This time we are going to rent a 4 Wheeler to explore the other side of the island.

Can't come fast enough.

Not my youtubes, but just a couple for now that relate to what we did.

The 2nd last day we visited the newly opened Ritz along Highrise. It is a beautiful place. Expensive. So expensive, we didn't even get a drink there. Just visited to see the layout.

I also took my wife 4 Wheelin.... more on that little bit of intensity. It was just me and her in a rented Jeep Wrangler. I can't stand tours, so didn't do this Safari thing.

We visited the back half of Aruba and it's all desert. 4 wheel drive is a must. We visited Little Bridge, Natural Bridge, that part was easy.  Natural Pool (Conchi) gets a little more intense.

We'll little buddies, it's that time. Off to our little island in the sun.

Be gone a week. Not sure I'll have access. I believe they put in wireless. We shall see.

We made it without incident.

My wife had fat fingers booking and we had different rows.

I was fortunate to sit next to a nice young local woman and her precocious daughter. They need to know four languages here, there native tongue, which I forget, starts with a P. They have to know Dutch, Spanish and English. The daughter is just starting with English. She also knows some Chinese.

Oh, did I mention, she's 5.

Dinner tonight by the beach and now to bed.... This is a long day that started at 3 AM.

86 and very windy. That's pretty much the forecast everyday.
