    Dolphin boat

    We did the Dolphin excursion today from 1-4

    boat seemed small but was actually fine. It held 40 people.

    the water at the sunken ship was so rough they had to start throwing the life preserver out. Our kids all went out to snorkel and had a very difficult time even swimming. Not much the boat could have done different, but I'm thinking they should have said in advance that swimming could be tough. Stayed there 45 minutes, imop we should have left imed and headed to Boca Catalina. Staff was friendly, drinks weak, served tuna and chic salad sammies and fruit cups. Also gave us I love Aruba t shirts , so for $45 it wasn't over the top spending.

    nothing beats the BlackPearl!

    hit Hard Rock for burgers after hitting Bugaloe for 5-6 happy hour.

    for those of you who remember George from Renn boat driver.... We found him captaining a catamaran that docked at Bugaloe. Holy cow we were surprised!!!! Didn't catch the boat name. For those who remember him he hasn't changed one bit!!

    Aside from Tino and Lilliana, George was one of the best loved Ren employees.

    George let me drive the boat back from the island a couple times when no one else was aboard, it was great. ( hope that's not why they let him go ). Still miss him after over a year!!!
