Sorry for the delay in posting, but for the past 2 days all we did is pool and beach time. No fancy restaurants, nothing really special except lying in the sun and lovin’ life. We did visit Scott and Leslie for a late lunch today, which by the way is a bad idea if there is something you really like on the menu, like the dipped Italian sandwich, because it’s gonna be sold out. Oh well, we made do with what was left, Scott customized some things and we were satisfied as usual. We will be there tomorrow early enough to get what we crave. Again we walked down to Bugaloe for a drink before heading back to the Surf. The weather has been beautiful, a bit windier than we are used to, but more wind is so much better than no wind. I had to go out and get some gas for the rental this afternoon and went to the Valero next to Linda’s. I pulled out and made a left instead of a right and saw the Caribbean Store. I stopped in and had quite possibly the coldest Balashi I’ve ever had for $2.30. Yep, $2.30…less than a mile from the area where the same beer, not nearly as cold, might cost you 4 or 5 bucks. It’s not a fancy place, quite simple actually, on the side of the road. I will be back there, a lot, this trip and every one from now on. This is the type of place I like to find. No fancy stuff, just a good honest place with nice honest people running it. I love the place… SIL has come down with a bit of a head cold and we are dealing with that. Hopefully she will be better by tomorrow. I just realized that earlier today was the BB party. Sorry I missed it, but I think my trip to the Caribbean store made up for it.
Great review and solid advice on Scott's. First time I went there I went at 2:30 hoping for a brought but they were sold out. Lucky for me they had Italian beef sandwiches which I ended up falling in love with. I'll have to be on the lookout for the Caribbean Store next time we are there cheap and ice cold is my favorite kind of beer.
Monday evening we went to Casa Tua for a pizza and had the tre Frommagio. We really liked the thin crust and complimented it with a bottle of Prosecco. We headed over to Hard Rock to pick up some t-shirts for the kids and then stopped by Buster’s to have a drink and watch a part of the game. Tuesday we slept in then got up and went to Scott’s for that Italian beef sandwich. They were slammed, but the beef was still available, and was as delicious as always. Leslie bought me a drink for my birthday and we said our goodbyes. We don’t leave till tomorrow, but they have closed starting today for their “staycation”. I’m not sure exactly how long they will be closed, but I’m sure the info is on their Facebook page. We went back to the Surf and hung out waiting to go on the Black Pearl for our afternoon snorkeling trip. The trip was as great as we remembered it. The entire crew is a fun, knowledgeable group and we had a great time. The cheese and tomato and grilled cheese sandwiches along with the “boat special punch” after the stops on the way back was dinner. After showers we went down to MooMba. It was pretty dead, but we had a great time talking to the bartenders, discussing where everyone was from, how long they had been in Aruba, etc. I just love the way Europeans travel and experience so much that the world has to offer. We said our goodbyes and returned to the room. We are up this morning for our last full day. Since the snorkel trip was late yesterday, I am going out tonight for my birthday dinner. I’m leaning towards Passions, but Barefoot is in the running too.
