    Our favorite place on the island, is the great beach at the Boca Grandi. The water is the best, and its very quiet.

    GREAT pictures Lisa...... We also had a great vacation at the
    Tam. in early Dec.
    It was our fourth trip to the Tam in two years. We agree, the resort could use a bit of updating. We did notice building 2500 was closed while we were there, total renovation. As most people know, everything in Aruba moves much slower than we are used to in the states.
    The beach is the most important part of our vacations. The Tam is by far the closest you can get to the beach.(about 25 feet from your patio). Well, thanx again for your great pics. We can't wait to see more.......Arlene and Steve

    sagman thank you for your kind words, they are greatly appreciated. Just this a.m. I am working on some photos I took late one afternoon when dh and I took a walk down the beach to the Divi. Whether it be the beach, dinner or an excursion, I rarely go anywhere in Aruba without my camera. This is a terrific way of preserving memories and the changes on the island. Or even just catching the moment when to the delight of everyone, the kid's club staff decides to jump in the pool with all their clothes on!



    Taking a quantity of photos is just to insure I get that perfect shot. They do not cost anything to develop, only my time to review them all. Even at home when photographing backyard birds with my telephoto lens, I may take 100 photos and only 1 shot comes out perfect. Now with my nieces, nephew and dd, I would need to take 1000 pictures for just 1 photo where someone did not have their eyes closed, was not smiling or looking to the side.

    I am using an Olympus EVOLT E-500 8.0 megapixel. This is definitely not a "point and shoot" camera. After 15 months of using it, I am still practicing.
    Right after my dh purchased the E-500, Olympus came out with a 10.0 megapixel E-510 which I am sure has even sharper photos.

    Click on this photo for the full size in the gallery:


    Below is a similar photo take with my Dad's new Olympus FE-300 12.0 megapixels and at 3.7"W x 2.2"H x 0.87" D downright tiny. Imo, it took great shots if you are looking for an easily trasportable "point and shoot" camera. AND there is a huge price difference between the two cameras.



    This is one of my favorite photos of the entire trip. It was taken late afternoon. It had rained off and on all morning and at noontime the sun finally did come out. You do not see many shots of this area of the island.
