    Aruba Trip #11 - Here we come!

    Smooth flight from Syracuse to Atlanta this am. Now sitting at gate (im)patiently waiting to board and get on our way. This appears to be a full flight. Will hit the island around 2:40 ready to party for Pans bday (WaltVb"s wife). Willcheck in periodically from the Happy Island. Just started calling for boarding. Woot!

    First morning on the beach. Came down at 4 and all of the palapas in front row were taken so I'm settled in to a nice large one in 2nd row. It is now 430 am and the guys are up in the palms with flashlights trimming the fronds. Have never seen them do that in the wee hours of the morning before.

    Our travel day day was smooth. We were the only plane arriving so breezed right through immigration. The bags did take a long while to reach the belt, maybe we got through too fast. Dennis from Tropic was waiting for us with a sign reading "KTS". I inquired about the sign and the shuttle (also a KTS vehicle), and he advised that they have partnered with KTS to provide the shuttle service since they are no longer allowed to complete the rental transactions on the airport property. The new process is still quick and efficient (shuttled us to a lot across from Price Smart where the car was waiting and we were on our way).

    We we were too tired to stop for groceries so came straight to the resort. Had to have a few drinks while waiting for our room (drat!). Met up with Walt and Pam for a great dinner at Chihuahas. We were the only ones there - I hope this place can survive. Walt says it was very busy last week, so I guess there is hope. After dinner we went to Moombas for a bit, which was crowded as usual on a Sunday night.

    Looking forward to a nice lazy day on the beach today. If I don't get knocked out by a coconut!

    We're almost neighbors. We live in Fayetteville, but we'd actually be closer if we were on the island at the same time

    Up bright and early on your first full day, nice. I will be honest, I have a much better chance of being up till 4am than getting up at 4am, lol. I am surprised that the entire front row was taken by 4am- wow! Have a great day.

    Must be Playa Linda, right? It's crazy how early the front row goes some weeks. But we do love it there. I heard some of the units have been renovated, anything notable?
    Enjoy your trip and thanks for sharing!
    7 trips in and still finding things to love. #8 will be great in November!
