I too have done things I typically would not do. I took a ride home from someone who is NOW my good friend. He insisted on driving me home after playing cards at the casino all evening, him and his buddy gave me a ride back to the Ritz. I thought over and over as I was getting in the car, I have only known these guys only a few days and I am getting into the car, in a foreign land for a ride back to my hotel...dumb, real dumb was my thought.. Then my thought as they were driving away after dropping me off, what nice guys....they went out of their way to take me home so I did not have to call a cab and wait.
Thanks for the update on Ruby! I'm so glad she is doing better! Wonderful!
Loved your advantage, going from Baby Beach all the way to the California Lighthouse (I believe, there is a second lighthouse, the Colorado Lighthouse down there at Baby Beach area but I haven't been there). Great stop at Charlie's Bar (would be on my wishlist).
And following a strange while being in Aruba: been there, done that!
Boca Catalina, Arashi Beach Manchebo Beach, Eagle Beach

Hope the the people are able to adopt the dog. It's so sad to seen them begging for food.
Peggy, I meant to tell you that we did go over to Divi but we didn't see the person that you were talking about. We also went to the craft vendors at Tam. on Friday night but didn't see them there, either, but thanks for telling me.
At the Renaissance Marketplace Downtown, there is a unique store that sells handcrafted items that look hand painted. They are actually composed of a resin that has been dyed and then applied to wooden objects. I do remember them having iguanas but the style is artistic and may not be your taste. It's called the MopaMopa store. Here's a link to give you an idea. Scroll down to the 26th slide and you'll see one version of an iguana. http://www.mopamopaaruba.com/art-gal.../#.VryUq_A8Kh8
