    Trip Report 5/15 - 5/23

    So I can't believe I'm back at work already. The goodnews is we are 1 day closer to the next trip!! I'll try to keep this short bycategory if that works.

    Travel to and from:
    Cab on time, Logan was a breeze. We met a new neighbor the week we left whohappens to be a Jet Blue Pilot. We were calledup to the desk and told to board first, free Bloody Marys on the way down.Totally unexpected, thanks neighbor! Arrival on time, short lines, picked upthe luggage, duty free, the rental across the street and off to La Cabana.Coming home was actually pretty smooth. Dropped off the rental, hit Jet Blue,no lines no waiting until we hit "the luggage room", but even thatmoved pretty well. Spent some time at One Happy Bar then off to Boston.

    Places we ate dinner, snacked, happy hour, etc.:
    The West Deck / Hostaria da Vittorio / La Vista / Passions / Texas de Brazil /Casibari Cafe with Kukoo Kunuku / MJ's / La Trattoria El Faro @ the lighthouse/ The Kitchen / Scott's Brats (ate, drank and ordered a new plate for the car!) / The Paddock / Islander Grill @ La Cabana / BugaloeBeach Bar / Carlito’s Sports Beach Bar / Pelican Pier Bar / Zeerovers

    Spent much of our time on Eagle Beach, made sure wealways hit the Pata Pata Bar happy hour each day and did a little shoppingdowntown. Made a small deposit at thecasino at La Cabana. We were up at onepoint during the vacation.
    We did a couple of excursions. We love the Mi Dushi trip. We miss the old sailing vessel. The new boat is nice and the staff is veryfriendly and they make sure you have a fun time. The food was good as well. We also did Aruba Bob for the first time andI can’t say enough about that experience. Stuart did an excellent job at making sure we all had a safe, fun and unforgettableexperience. Very professional, knowledgeableand the pictures he took during the trip were awesome. I highly recommend Aruba Bob, they run afirst class operation.
    All in all it was another successful and enjoyable tripto Aruba. Can’t wait until next year!
    Cheers!

    Sounds like a great trip right from the start! You hit a lot of our favorite spots.
    Question - if you have been on Jolly Pirates, could you compare that experience to Mi Dushi?
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    We have actually never tried Jolly Pirates but I have not heard any negative reviews. It just seems like the boats have many more people on them than the Mi Dushi.
