    ArubaBob at Costa Linda

    Our Delta flight left on time saturday at 6am from Tulsa. Connecting flight in ATL left 15 minutes late but we still arrived on time, frozen like popsicles! That was the coldest plane ride I was ever on. DW had a sweater and a blanket and was still cold. Other than that a very smooth flight. Met Hans and got our car. Checked in at Costa Linda about 3. Room was ready because we were a day late. The weeks are Friday to Friday there. They did us a great job on getting our 2 weeks together. We rented next week in room 4004 from an owner and they assigned us room 4003 for this week on our RCI trade. They have been very good about this in the past as well. Last year we were in 4006 and 4007. The year before we were in the same room for 2 weeks. Went to Lings and stocked up for about 4 days. Got a pizza from Pizza Bobs for dinner and went to bed early. We got up at 3am to catch our flight.

    Great morning here at CL. Had our coffee, bagels, mellons and fruit and gouda for breakfast on the balcony. Spent most of the morning by and in the pool. Did some water aerobics and had a couple of mudslides at happy hour. Went down to the beach for a while. They have an area blocked off for sea turtles. I hope they hatch while we are here. The beach is much wider than I have ever seen it before. It is a long walk from the last palapa to the water. It looks like less than 30 or 40 yards to the boueys out there. Last year my GS swam out to them and it was at least twice as far away.

    Not sure where we are eating tonight. DW wants to go to Blossoms so we will if they are open. Casino for a while after dinner.

    Picking up Sis an Bil tomorrow afternoon at the airport. Sorry about the caps on the title, didnt know the caps lock was on until I was typing the message. It wont let me change it. Oh well. More later.

    Costa Linda - My favorite place on earth! The beach was really wide when we were there in Feb., much wider than we had seen in a long time. Sounds like a great day. Hope you get to see the turtles hatch. I would love to be there and see that one year.
