    Just got back on Sunday!

    It was another wonderful 17 nights in paradise. Will post photos and a trip report soon.

    My favorite new restaurant: Papillon (went there twice)

    Also went to the Butterfly Farm for the first time (thought it was beautiful.)

    Horseback riding at Gold Mine Ranch again....had the friskiest horse - he was young and it was like riding a wound-up puppy. Good ride but I was exhausted by the end.....finally let him have his way when we were headed back to the ranch and he broke into a full gallop and we left everyone in the dust.

    Beach was wonderful, clear every day....could see fish at my feet and could still see the bottom when I swam out to the buoys.

    Amsterdam Manor....love the staff, love my room.....

    Went to a wedding on Ren Island - what a fun night! Great food, drinks, and dancing til 11pm right on the beach. Haven't danced that much in ages!

    Now...need to start planning trip #21...

    Randi - here's the website for Papillon:

    http://www.papillonaruba.com/

    It's located in The Village across the street from the Radisson. Great food and atmosphere. Definitely one of our favorites.

    Andrea - yes, next time we're on the island at the same time we'll have to ride together. I don't ride as much as I used to and this horse was a little too much for me. I couldn't even take any photos while we were out riding because he would never just stand (had to keep him going in circles.) It was our guide, myself, and 3 of my girlfriends. I was ahead of everyone the whole way....felt like I was out there riding all by myself a couple of times and had to keep looking back at our guide for him to point me in the right direction. LOL!! I think next time I will ask for a horse that is a little less spirited so I can enjoy my ride a little more. LOL!!

    Dh loved their carte blanche! Truly uncanny that there were items he either loved or was intrigued by, but enjoyed every morsel.
