    Surf club June 21st thru June 28

    I apologize in advance.. no laptop on this trip.forces me to not look at work while I'm away. Please excuse my lack of punctuation grammar spelling etc..etc..I will be using my cell phone to keep you updated.I will try to keep you posted on what's going on. first of all nice easy flight from Newark plenty of leg room with exit row seating picked up my car with hans no issues as usual. .also picked up a bottle of Grey Goose $34.00 from the duty free shop. plenty of wind 25 miles an hour to be exact. Also no problem checking into the Surf Club.couldn't help to notice: the support for the World Cup although I'm not a soccer fan it is crazy how they support this sport.huge big screen at the Moomba unfortunately we went to dinner there and it was awful, waited forever purchased a few drinks and left couldn't believe the lack of service... went to champions with no issues had a sandwich and a beer in front of me in less than 10 minutes.went to the casino and made a quick donations. Also ran into junior is an activities salesman who knows just about everything that's going on in the island looking to book a few things with him what a great guy and a resource for activities in Aruba I'll try to keep you posted. oh by the way... Ling and Sons is $66 for a case of 11 .5 ounce cans florin. it is my mission to find the best price for balahsi on the island.
    Next Aruba trip to the Marriott Surf Club July 2018.

    We were at the Surf Club a few years ago during the World Cup. The Netherlands was playing one afternoon and the noise all over Palm Beach was deafening, but we got into it along with everyone else and had a lot of fun. Let us know where you find those Balashi for the best price. Have a great trip!

    Sunday went to super foods picked up a few things for breakfast and beer of course 60 florin balashi and 80 florin fpr bright seems to be the best deal so far the way I'm going threw it I might as well call the Balashi brewery and have them deliver me a pallet. they also are making fresh squeezed orange juice everyday it is amazing. Also compliments that bottle of grey goose. Went to Waka Waka good not great. First choice was Hollywood smoke but it was packed with soccer fans. Marriott is having a comedy show now. Will be checking that out this week. Also super foods now open at 8am on Sundays. Have a great week.

    You would have thought it was a Holiday from the people partying and watcing Holland play in the world cup. Really neat to see. Snorkeled at boca Catalina... the clarity was good and the fish were plentiful. Rest of day was at the beach. Went to whacky wahoo for dinner. The dining room is much more comfortable with the renovations. Food was amazing as usual. So amazing. I booked another reservation for Friday on my way out. Casino donation.. Andrea you were right....the buffalo is officially pronounced dead.

    Went to Linda's on Tuesday for breakfast followed by some shopping downtown....no cruise ships so it was peaceful. took the boys to ride go carts afterwards at bushari. Carts are fast and it is a nice track. .Went to bingo for dinner very good and reasonable prices. Went for a night swim and had a snake swim right in front of us in the lazy river. Had him contained in the steps area ad called for a pool boy to remove, but some hot shot decided to throw him in the landscaping, therefore we have no idea where Mr snake is now. 14/16 inches skinny and was black. To much excitement for me...back to the casino tonight.

    well i am very creeped out re: the snake.
    that being said, those are black racers and they are harmelss to humans and love to eat rodents.
    so (i cannot believe i am saying this) they are the good snakes.
    i hate them i hate them i hate them!

    the go cart place is to the side or behind Lings right?

    glad all is well and you folks are having fun!
