    (back to talk of sunscreen lotion)
    here is the lotion that we use.......CeraVe
    CeraVe products recommended to me by ArubaLisa a couple of years ago.
    Within the last 6 months they have begun selling sunscreen.
    we do not like the invisible zinc oxide.......as it is NOT invisible and leaves a white film.
    not inexpensive, but there are always coupons on their site and often cvs has great coupons

    all but the first 2 days were "pray for clouds".
    me, the sun lover has been looking skyward looking for a cloud every so often.

    today, Saturday May 11

    Sunny with an occasional cloud and nice breeze!

    We snorkeled at Renaissance Island for a little while, hung out at the beach there (and still no flies and or mosquitos)
    Came back to the Renaissance pool and hung out by the pool for a little while, then headed down to Nikky Beach for a drink and a look around.
    What a really cool place. It was very busy and all seemed to be having a good time.

    Dinner tonight was at Madam Janette and it was exceptional.
    Paul had the burgerloin and was only able to eat half.
    I had the almond crusted grouper and also only ate half.
    Their portions are huge.
    The service was terrific and this time we sat on the patio.......first time on the patio/porch in probably 10 years.

    We might go back before friday.


    Marriott Casino for just a short while...made a quick withdrawal and got out!

    Andrea, Thanks for the daily updates... I was especially looking forward to your Mme J's review... so glad all was good.... it's traditionally our second night dinner when we are in Aruba. Sounds like you are really having a relaxing vacation.... nice!

    Andrea thanks for the reports. We are trying MJ for the first time in June. Has the trolley been running?

    Sunday May 12
    Weather delightful, another day where clouds were scarce.
    We did not get out to Renaissance Island today as we were just too damn sluggish and never ate breakfast til 11 am.
    Most of the day we spent in (not at), but IN the pool. We did get out to reapply sunscreen and use the bathrooms, but other than that we had our nalgene bottles of ice water, our pool noodles and just floated aimlessly about for hours.

    We went over to the BLUE Bar at the Marina tower for a drink before dinner then into Aquarius for dinner.
    We had been to Aquarius before, and always enjoyed it. Tonight, not so much.
    Maybe because it was crowded or because i was tired........the food just seemed to be subpar.
    The grilled lobstertails were tough and stringy. My husband did like the seared tuna.
    The selection of veggies was very limited.
    Certainly not worth $40 pp tonight.

    *****addendum. The restaurant. A restaurant manager spoke with us this morning because we voiced our displeasure of what we considerd subpar ( Aquarius is usually good) to the manager on duty last night.
    He was kind and listened to our concerns.
    He invited us back for dinner again, but our restaurant card is full.
    however we will go back for breakfast on Wednesday morning as that was in our plan anyway.
    We thanked him for the offer though and said breakfast instead.

    We headed over to the Marriott to visit the casino and ....this time we broke even, which is always good.

    Tomorrow we'll be snorkeling at Baby Beach, a dentist appointment and Amsterdam Manor beach Bars AKA Passions Beach Bar, for happy hr.
    Hope I make it there for happy hr as my dentist appt is at 4:30

    til tomorrow...
