    Bruised and sore in Aruba under the tropical sun is better than bruised and sore at home! Hope you're doing better!

    We went to Wacky Wahoos once and we were not impressed either. We brought another couple with us and none of us were crazy about our dinners- we have had better fish at other restaurants and it's easier to get a reservation too! We went to Bingo's in May for our first time and we really liked our meal there.

    i have always enjoyed my fish at WW but even though they have expanded a bit, i still feel all boxed in and cramped there.

    jayshea you are correct about the reservation system.
    sometimes i think i have a better chance of getting into heaven than geting thru on the phone to WW

    We gave up trying to get a table. Lots of alternatives where it isn't such a PITA to get a reservation.

    From where we stay on the island we probably drive by the place a half dozen times a day. If we decide we want to dine there we'll stop in to make a reservation. We too would probably pass if we had to deal with the phone system.

    Thanks I am feeling less black and blue?.the Aruban Sun is helping wonders..
    I was bit worried about our Wacky Wahoooosss experience ...no ones taste is the same , and it is a bit cramped for space..
    well let's start with the soup Maria's Mom made
    Lunch Marias Moms Soup and crusty roll...heavens .,tasty yes very meat pumpkin potatoes plantain ..pasta ..after 1/2 so full could not eat anymore. Heavens above felt I had eaten a 5 course meal..
    Come 6 o'clock still full not just me Husband to...Shower dressed out to find a friend at Pelican Pier ...A few drinks get together and arrange more time with them ..down to Alahama shopping mall. Look see around ....love lazy lizard Elan clothes ..
    Feeling a bit hungry but no so much !!...up shot 1 Dunkin doughnuts and coffee .which was still a strain on the old tummy I have never felt so full In All my life . What ever the Arubans put in their soup will keep you going all day and all night long .But got a bag of doughnuts for next day...
    One things for sure however the Arubans make soup ,You do not want to eat anything at all for hours and hours ...
    Overcast skies today waiting for the Rain it never came ..
    unlike 2 nights ago , we sleep with our windows open. Middle of the night my husbands jumping around the bed..Good God what's happening .......The rain is comeing through the mozzie net Windows it was so funny ...No it was not a dream ...just superman husband fighting to close the windows ..
    Anyway Pam Pams tonight fillet steak for me surf turf for hubby wine beer. 76 florins ...called In At Cheng's..open at 9.30 got my Mango Sorbet ..ask about close time 10 o'clock ..just ate a bowl of mango sorbet ,early to bed tonight ,Husbands gone to sleep on the Sunbeds under the Palapa ...I think I will just leave him there for now ..he wil be fine.

    Just. Footnote ...
    Try the fish shop at superfoods. The Takeaway or eat in fish meals are good value and it's fresh fish...
    Been busy with visitors ..The girls from the Tamarjin came last night , we had a really good time Wine beers pizza , cannot believe we have know them For 11 years.how time flies by just like this holiday Zoooommmm..
    People are complaining about the renovations , as they where not told when they booked. Seems like they are trying to do a lot in the night but the workers are still doing during the day...But it's a big job sure it will be worth it. And look Wonderfull in the end .

    Went down town today. Parked 3 florins for 2 hours , the parking attendant was busy wheel clamping someone .but took time to speak While we where putting our money in the parking meter he was very helpful ,and a . Very jolly man!
    Bought some more things I do not really need. Was surprised Mango have a big Sale on .Hubby could not find any new flip flops as he's busted his...
    And got his self a Hammock instead !
    Must say my trip seems a bit boring , up to others ,that indeed I enjoy reading .perhaps it's because we sort of live the Aruba life and mix it up a bit with holiday days ..Or it's an age thing ...
