    CP, we touch down at 11:41 Saturday! Enjoying your reports. My living room has become suitcase central. Making sure DH and teen boys have everything. Last minute things tomorrow then a very early wake up and we will be on our way!
    I packed bug spray/wipes. Guessing they won't help with the flies?
    Any last minute suggestions I might be forgetting?
    Looking forward to tomorrow's report!

    I finally have had the chance to catch up on my forum reading. Nice to read about your trip preparation and your exploits so far. Now, I await reports of your big casino wins! Good luck!

    Even if you forget something.... you're in Aruba..... makes it easier to deal with. FYI there should be fireworks on Palm Beach.... in front of the Hyatt at 9 tomorrow night.... haven't confirmed that, but it's happened every year for a few now.

    Quinta del Carman last night 8:30 dinner. Food A, Atmosphere A+ and service A. We were greeted at the door 20 minutes before our reservation and seated within 5 minutes. The staff is well trained and understand the menu. The courtyard with all the trees and lights is quite lovely.... DW thinks romantic! She ordered the bleu chz tenderloin with mushrooms and I was having a beef withdrawal, so I got the superb 20 oz bone in ribeye ordered cooked 'Pittsburg'..... and they understood the order and delivered it almost as ordered. The outside was charred perfectly and the inside was just beyond medium rare. Presentation was wonderful and the veggies nicely sautéed. DW's tenderloin was a perfect medium rare and the mushrooms beyond good. No complaints at all with this restaurant and I highly recommend it. Not cheap.... but you do get what you pay for and this place is a definite value.

    Tucked DW in and went over to the Glitz casino around 10:30 and struggled for over 3 hours at a blackjack table to win $60. At least it was a win and the first night I didn't leave money at the casino!

    Breakfast at Mango's again this morning... at the beach for choice of first row palapas by 9 and lunch early afternoon at Tulip.

    Nothing to report about the beach today..... just sun, swim, read, nap and relax.... it's a tough job... but someone has to do it!

    Quinta del Carman is definitely my take on a fine dining experience. All elements work and deliver a wonderful wow factor. Never woulda discovered it w/o the forum...... thx guys...!

    If I were at the Radisson again.... I'd be in the casino while DW gets ready for dinner. At the AM, I take care of trip reports which is probably cheaper in the long run!
