Happy New Tear to you guys, I am the early riser too when in Aruba. Love it! The birds get so loud before sunrise and before sunset, so tropical. Rob, don't forget to look up in the early morning sky for shooting stars. Without all the light pollution, Aruba is a prime spot for star gazing. We too love to have a front row papala for our long day at the beach. Sounds like a blast so far, keep up the good work with the trip reports.
Thanks Sean and Susan
New Years was wonderful. Beach from 5:30 until 3:30, 10 hours front row! Pool for two hours.
Dinner at Passions was a nice surprise. Reservations for table of 12 made 10 months ago nicely honored with a wonderful round table. Food was really done perfectly; not an easy task on New Year's Eve. Staff was a little light, but our waiter worked very hard to compensate and he got the bill right too.
fireworks did not disappoint.......moderate level all evening until about 11:30 when it broke out everywhere leading to a mammoth crescendo from 11:45-12:30.
