    Happy Days Are Here Again!

    Well we arrived yesterday for lunch after leaving cold N.J at 4am. Met Hans and off to ABC. Grabbed lunch at Matthews and got a real grouper sandwich. MMMM goood. Grouper is much thicker than the Talapia our local friends tell us. Great sunny hot weather. A nice swim and walk on beach, so relaxing. Headed over to Moomba to meet some friends. Always a fun crowd at the Moomba. Had dinner at Salt and Pepper, good meal at a fare price. Back to ABC and a nightcap at Ricardos.
    Having breakfast now at Manchebo and then a long beach walk. We are in paradise and everything is going smooth so far. Birds chirping and the waves make it so relaxing,
    Tonight off to a local bar/restaurant by Balashi Brewery called Young fellows for dinner and some dancing. Our friend plays in a Arubian band, so we are so excited. Everywhere we go warm hellos from staff. We feel like we are back home.

    We have never been to Young Fellow but have passed by a number of times. We'll add it to our list for next trip, since we're always looking to try local places.

    Another great morning. Had some rain at 7 am now the sun is popping out. Young Fellows was a blast last night. My Susan's number was picked out of a hat and she won Queen for the night. She wore her tiara and sash so proudly. The band was great and the BBQ hit the spot. This is a very local place, more fun to come when they have music like last night. Must have been a 100 locals dancing there last night. The beach in front of the Tam and Divi Divi look great! We hit the Bunker Bar on a nice long walk from ABC. At Manchebo, now for delicious coffee. Then a walk next store to see Paco the talking parrot by the bar. He is a pisser! "Whats Up". Then incredible laughter!
    Today we sail on the Black Pearl- we are so excited. A drink at the Moomba then some snorkel and a great sunset.
    We are heading to Scott's Brats to pick up a license plate we ordered for our grandson and breakfast sandwich and a Bloody Mary. Its too hot here. We are missng the cool temps in N.J. Its -1 today! You know we are only kidding!
    Off to another great day of sun and sand and a few cocktails. P.S they went cray over the superbowl here. Huge T.V's everywhere.

    Thanks for the update on Divi/Tam beach areas, don't get that too often for us Divi lovers. Have a great time on the Black Pearl tonight had read many good things about it. Really wish I were in that "hot" weather right now
