Good Morning folks... Last full day here as we are flying out tomorrow.
yesterday was much of the same... Lube up, float, read, rest. Mid afternoon we went up to the lazy river and floating around.
Now here I go on my rant.... Freaking jerks have a rope in the river to stay together with and form their personal flotilla.
Hello security where might you be??? Also the band color changed from lite pink to black. A couple floats by us laughing with their Aqua color bracelets on. Security appears and misses the wrong color bracelets and the human island. While I believe they are trying efforts to stop this it isn't working. I know I should be chilling on vacation but I get totally get crazy nuts over this. Breath deep Cindy!!
Bully picked us up and took us to Ventana Del Mars. Lovely setting, great service, quality meal. $120 for us. Had goat cheese salad, corn and crab chowder and both had grouper. My trip should be named, "Cindy does Grouper" as its day 5 I have had it.
two hour event. Nice guitarist in back ground. Super nice evening. Go, 5 min cab ride from Surf.
last day... Gotta go grab our palapa and soak in sights. Promised Rob I would go out at 8 am...
maybe post tonite if I get packed early enuf
My gosh just can't believe your vacation is coming to an end! Hope the lazy river today is just that -- lazy! I'm not much of a fish person. Tried grouper (fried) and enjoyed it. I'm thinking I need to expand my horizons and try a different grouper preparation.

Boy I know vacations in Aruba go by way too fast when I am there but I swear it goes by just as fast when members post every day, maybe it is because reading along seems like we are there with you all. Enjoyed your reports, safe travels home and start planning your next trip!
Cindy and Rob, thanks so much for sharing your trip with us. It was like we got to spend almost 2 extra weeks on the island. Glad we could join you at dinner, the beach and in that confounding lazy river. I have a big mouth and would drag a security person in the pool if people had a rope tied to each other. Did you notice the security folks have the current color band on their wrists? I guess it's to remind them. I also don't think it does much good. Hope you guys have a safe, quick flight home.
(And a some point, be sure to thank Johan Vaaler, credited with the invention of the paper clip.)
Your many days of grouper is right my alley! Your trip report has me more excited for our trip and reminds me that I did enjoy the lazy river more than I realized. We never went till late afternoon or evening time when it wasnt as busy. It always bothers me when people think their enjoyment is more important than mine and just disregard rules and common courtesy.
Enjoy your last day and I wish you safe and smooth travels. Thanks for posting!
