    W used the free wifi at the market. The password is aruba123. Found that if I needed the wifi for more than a minute or 2 that this was a better option. I kept losing the wifi at Divi.

    Thanks for making me feel better Ace!

    Andrea, we're hoping to get to Barneys, maybe tomorrow or Friday. I had thought about Hollywood Smokehouse but remembered last year they closed for the whole week. Ended up having a really nice dinner at the buffet. Tom had the beef Wellington from the carving station and said it was good. I went with shrimp cocktail, assorted cheeses, salami, hummus with fresh pita triangles and chicken wings. Quite the combination. No complaints.

    DiviDivi, hopefully it's quieter when you get here!

    Wednesday recap:
    Early breakfast at the buffet. On the way back to the room I noticed the small pool at the Veranda was empty, perfect! Had the pool to myself for over an hour, very relaxing. Grabbed a taxi downtown to the Seaport Casino, got our players cards and made a small deposit. We decided to try the Sidebar for lunch. It has a small menu but it was a really good choice. Tom had a cheeseburger that looked so good I wished I ordered it. I went with the Dutch snack platter with bitterballen and fricandellen and cheese. It's nice to try flavors you can't get at home.

    Also checked out the Ocean Suites since we'll be moving there on Monday. The small pool is close to completion. The pool is filled and it looks like they're finishing up on the pavers. Looks beautiful. Trying to get a taxi from there was a pain. We gave up after waiting 40 minutes. They had called 3 times. We grabbed the shuttle over to the marina tower. When I told the shuttle driver about the wait for the taxi he hailed us one and like magic a taxi appeared. Lesson learned. The plan was to then head over to the Bucuti to check it out but by then I just said the heck with it and we went back to the Divi.

    So so now we hang out at the lobby catching up on emails and such.

    Peg - have you noticed if my favorite breakfast lady Anita is still there? I really hope so I have a small token of appreciation for her. If so, please let me know her name is Anita correct? I know you know who she is, the lady who makes the waffles, eggs benedict etc. Thanks in advance

    I don't know why it's always a hassle to get a cab from that area. When I used to dine at Cuba's cookin, I used to wait 30 minutes for a cab. By the way I was by the bucuti resort today. Actually I was next door at Manchebo pega pega grill for lunch. They make great tall frozen drinks and the lunch is good too. A very nice quiet resort but I noticed the palapas are not close to the water.
