Started Super Bowl Sunday with a direct flight out of cold Boston. Flight was ontime and smooth no issues when we landed in Aruba sailed right through everything, luggage was there all is good. Walked outside to find Bully and Hector was there instead thats fine took us to start our wonderful vacation at Playa Linda.
We rented a townhouse (3 bedroom) we were 6 people was great. We had made reservations to watch MY PATRIOTS play at Moomba arrived there we had second row seats with a table great view of the HUGE screen.. WHAT A GAME.. exhausted after back to place to get a good nights sleep was a long day being up since 3;30.
Had to get up bright and early 5 to save a spot at pool we had the same spot all week was nice. Saw our friends we met 2 years ago they had their whole family down for the week. Needless to say weather was terrific... We ate in this night so we could get the whole day in at pool then strolled Palm beach area. ahhh I love it here...
Tuesday.. We actually went downtown shopping just us girls..spent all day there bought some Jewelry of course guys stayed at beach We ate at Smokey Joes this night for Ribs.. Kelvin was our waiter he was super made a joke of everything..
Wed... oops more pool and beach..and bingo....Dinner this night was at my favorite Chalet Suisse I had the stuffed grouper, hubby had the Shrimp Scampi, our friends had the beef stroganoff and Filet what a meal...
