    Our new friends from Holland.

    OK, this would NEVER happen at home, only in Aruba, it brings the best out of me.
    We dropped them off at the parking area at the top of the pool. We then proceeded to drive down to the pool as we got to the bottom, low and behold the park ranger is there, we took a left and headed to Daimari Beach, he followed for a while and we stopped at Daimari and finally got our feet wet there, what a beautiful place and the sand is like powder sugar.

    We stayed for 15 minutes and figured we would head back towards the pool only to get run off by the ranger again, it must have been lunch time as he was gone. We stayed at the pool for about an hour and yes had some more Aruba Cheesesteaks, we exited the park in Santa Cruz and headed back towards the off road we re-entered the desert at the Nat Bridge and took it all the way to Arashi Beach and snorkeled from there to Catalina Cove and back, we the headed back to the resort, long day lots of territory covered. We are now at 305 miles.

    Tomorrow maybe the same but throw in Baby Beach too.

    That's awesome! I think Aruba generally brings out the best in most of us I'm sure they were very appreciative when they found out how much longer they had to go!

    Sadly enough, we leave tomorrow.

    The trip's over but the memories will last a lifetime.

    We hope that what we've provided was helpful for members, old and new.

    158 days until Aruba 5.0!

    Day 10

    Day 10

    Went to the park today for the Natural Pool and entered a new way we never entered before, through the front gate. We're now official annual pass members, left our donation. Told them that although we paid, we still intend on sneaking in.

    After the pool we drove to Catalina Cove. Did our usual walk over to Boca Catalina and snorkel back.

    Correction to an earlier post, the photo we had named as Boca Daimari was, in fact, Boca Ketu:

    Thanks to all who followed. Hope everyone enjoyed. Our total miles were 349 miles. Summary to follow, with more pictures, after we get home.

    Bon Nochi from Aruba ♥
