    Saturday 8/24 - Our last full day on the island

    Very long time coming I know. Sorry!

    We spent the entire day together - beach, then pool - enjoying our last hours together and with Aruba. Long talks on the beach, memories we will cherish forever. We went to our last bingo & Pata Pata Happy Hour - Our friend Mike won the free breakfast certificate and gave it to my niece since she was staying an extra week.

    We left the pool and went back to our rooms to get ready for dinner at Madame Janette - our last night on the island tradition. Holy Crow! Incredibly amazing meal! Service was superior, as always. The food was to die for! Portion size was huge - pasta very fresh, kids' meal portions were way too much (chicken fingers & fish sticks pictured below). I'm so happy I decided to keep the reservation & tradition of MJ's.

    I stopped at Passion's to get a gift certificate for a friend who is getting married & honeymooning in Aruba - was told to go to the desk at the Amsterdam. Went there and was told they only sell GCs on weekdays So I wasn't able to get it for her since we were leaving the next day (Sunday). Lesson learned - don't wait till the last minute for anything!

    Got back to LaCabana & spent the last few precious moments with the family & hit the casino one last time (no significant wins) and packed up

    that is a shame that "passions" at the amsterdam manor could not have been accommodating.

    your food photos look scrumptious.

    thanks for sharing.

    I encourage everyone to write their Aruba stories here - for all of us not on the island AND to have available when you are back home and missing paradise!
