    Day 6. What an awesome day I had today. My day started with a 50 minute walk, 3 hour tour with Bully and he took us to the bright bakery for goodies. I finally tried the pastechis with gouda cheese and I had a coconut macaroon cup cake. Great 3 hour tour.

    For lunch the west deck and I tried the grouper fingers, conch fritters, fried funchi, keshiyena and a side of rice. We were stuffed!!!

    Dinner, Quintana De Carmen. Loved it! Great building, court yard, staff and food. I have dinner reservations at Daniels tomorrow but I'm tempted to go again to QDC.

    We hit the Glitz casino after dinner and called it a night.

    Last day tomorrow so I have to make the most of it. Thanks all for the birthday wishes It was the best ever.

    One delicious day right there! I love the pastechis with gouda. QDC is so great. if you go back, you may want to try the Orange Cosmo, if you like that type of thing. It was one of my all-time favorite drinks.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Oh no I'm back home to reality. Yesterday Day 7 I spent a lot longer than usual at the beach. I really wanted to appreciate the beauty of Eagle Beach and was there from 10:30am to 3:30pm. I usually leave at 2pm. I got a lot of sun, drank a lot of rum. was in the water a long time. Dinner was at Daniel's and I was like a Zombie from all the run & OJ I drank at the beach. A lot of booze and a long time in the sun don't really mix. You get dehydrated if you are not chasing it down with water which I didn't and the sun drains you after a while. I felt sooo tired but I managed to make it to Daniels. I had the filet mignon and lobster tail and bacon scallops as an appetiser. My Mom had the mixed grill of filet mignon, shrimp and lamb chop. Everything was excellent but the service was really slow. It was a pack though so understandable. I managed to drink a white wine despite all that booze. Traditionally I have an Old Fashion Martini the last night but I needed something light.

    When we left Daniels a white taxi van pulled up with the number 5. I thought it was Bully. So I get in the van and said, hey this is Bullys van. The driver said,no sir this is my Van but I'm Bullys brother in Law Hubert. I was so glad to meet him because I heard great things about him too. I told him I took an excursion with Bully the prior day and Bully had told him about it. So i told him if Bully told him about when we got stuck in the sand by the 3 bridges. He said yes and started laughing.I told him that poor Bully was sweating thinking he was not going to be able to get the van out since the wheels were spinning. I'm sure we've all been there with mud, snow or dirt road. Hubert said oh so he was sweating and he said he was going to tease him all week. LOL

    Today I got to the airport at 11:30am and I was at my departure gate by 12:40pm. It was a breeze but I could have even gone faster if I had gotten the wheel chair assistance for my Mom like I did in NY. Still great timing. We departed at 2:20 and was in NY by 6:45. i got the wheel chair assistance for my Mom to luggage claim and the guy took a short cut threw some security area. Took 5 minutes. When we got to luggage my bag was already there so i grabbed them both and we got a cab right away. What a breeze it was in Aruba and in NY!

    To recap my trip, I dinned in 5 new restaurants Gostoso, Ricardo's, The West Deck, Daniels and Quinta De Carmen. I enjoyed them all but wow Quinta De Carmen was awesome! I also ordered the Nutella Cheese Cake Cindyo reccomended and since it was my birthday they put a sparkle candle on it. I must of eaten Grouper 3 or 4 times this trip. I had it at Barneys the Parm Grouper which was good but my favorite was the dutch grouper I had at Barneys last year.

    The Bully tour was excellent. He really provides a great service. He took me to Alto Vista Church, A Catholic Cemetery which was unique because they are like miniature mosoleums that hold 4 caskets inside and they are all painted in bright colors. We went to the natural bride, gold mine ruins, a water tank with awesome view of Orangestad from up that hill, the rock formations with the indian drawings. He took us to the Bright Bakery and bought us Pastechi,Coconut Macaroon cup cakes and a loaf of bread filled with gouda cheese. He insisted on paying and said that is how he operates. He droped us off at The West Deck for lunch after the tour and told me to call him when I was done and he would drive us back to the hotel which he did. Great Guy!

    So that is my story guys and I just have to say that it gets better every time. Hey isn't that a Beatle song? "It's getting better all the time, better, better,better.

    Thanks all for reading my story!
