    My trip report

    Day 1 9/20 Landed in Aruba at 345 pm today. It was pretty deserted downtown on the cab ride to la cabana. I was in my room at 5pm. Unpacked and off I went to super foods for supplies. Dinner was pie from Pizza Bob to go with wings and I enjoyed a mug of balashi beer while I waited for the pie. Not much activity today but I'm ready for the beach tomorrow.

    Day 2

    Got up at 630am and went for my 30 minute walk. I had breakfast in the room and off to the beach around 1030am. It was a perfect day. The water was a little warm but once I get in, I don't want to come out. I can spend an hour easily in the water. Around 130 I went to the room for lunch and some beers.

    Dinner was at Hollywood smoke house. It was ok. I had the brisket and my mom had the pulled pork which was very dry. The meat was also bland so you have to put on the bbq sauce to get some flavor. What I enjoyed the most was the bourbon drink.

    Next we stopped by the allahambra casino. We did not win but we had a good time. My mom spent 45 minutes on 1 machine with 10 bucks so she got her entertainments worth. They are very generous with the free drinks and they come around a lot. I had a few of those aruba arriba.

    We went back to last cabana at 10pm and saw that the casino there was dead so we called it a night.

    Tomorrow another day in paradise.

    Thanks for sharing. I also thought the Bourbonwood at Hollywood Smokehouse was fantastic.

    Day 3 9/22. I woke up at 800am and did not go for my 30 minute walk. I was just too tired but I'm glad I got my 8 hours of straight sleep. I had lower back pain and sciatica for the past 7 weeks and after 4 to 5 hours of sleep I would awaken because of the pain. Today I felt zero pain the entire day and I am grateful.

    I made an omelette for breakfast and relaxed reading the local paper. Afterwards I went to the beach and read for an hour while sipping rum punch I made and then I swam for an hour. Off to the room around 130 for lunch and I had some left over pizza from pizza Bob.

    For dinner I went to Bingoes. I had the lamb shank which was good and tender with mashed potatoes. My mom had the jumbo shrimp with rice. I had an Apple pie with cinnamon ice cream which was awesome. My mom had the cheese cake. The food and the service was excellent. There were a few locals there and the staff were Dutch and very polite. I tipped 25 percent which I rarely do but it was well deserved.

    Back to the room and no casino. I was very lazy today.

    every now and again everyone is entitled to a "lazy day"

    glad that all is going well!!

    sorry to hear that you have sciatic issues. take it easy and do not overdo. i have a chronic piriformis muscle injury that causes sciatic pain. yikes, what a nightmare and it takes weeks to go away.........and then comes back when i least expect it. do not let it return while you are in aruba!!!

    thanks
