    When we were walking back to the car some people were just entering the gate with the cooler (they were apparently smarter than us) but...the donkeys are smart, too, and recognized the cooler and went right for them before they even got half way there. LOL!! So the cooler doesn't work that well. My advice if you have treats: be ready to run. LOL!

    Great trip report and enjoyed all the pictures. We are wine drinkers and would love to try the wine room. Where is it located? Thanks for taking the time to write your report, a late report is better than no report, lol!

    Here's the map from their website. It's not on the main road but very close. You need to take the roundabout by Wendy's (between downtown and the low rise hotel area) and go inland. Then take the first right and then take another right by the laundry (kind of like you're going around the block) - it's almost at the end of this street on your right hand side.

    Monrick (owner) has a great knowledge of wine - he just recently came back from a wine tour/tastings in Chile and brought some really nice wines back with him.

    Great photos Amy. I enjoyed your report very much. I too love Bugaloe for lunch/dinner etc...just a great island feel there. We will go to Bugaloe twice our first week, first day and then when our friends arrive we want to take them there to start the trip off right.

    Where is the photo where it looks like you guys are standing on a deck, starting on photo 2 with the waves crashing in the background on the rocks?

    It's a cute little beach party house which has always been empty when we've been there. We stumbled upon it years ago and now we take a few beers with us, sit on the steps and enjoy the view when we're out and about. I'll send you more info.

    Thanks Amy. Everyone's reports are great. It makes all of us realize how much there really is to do on the island. I am pretty lazy these days on vacation but I am taking mental notes because in another year or so our vacations will evolve as our son gets older. Thanks again.

    Always love your reports and pictures Amy. Looks like those donkeys have quite the personalities, you captured great pictures of them. I was surprised to see the old cars pictures, it is nice to see Aruba has some new spots for those who have done it all. Always amazed at how you and Mike never seem to age, what is your secret? Perhaps all the trips to Aruba (LOL) thanks for posting, never too late and always worth looking forward to your reports.

    I think I take about 10 photos of the donkeys just to get one good one - thank goodness for digital cameras. LOL!!

    Laughter is good anti-aging medicine - we do as much of it as we can and don't take things too seriously! (Which means I now have laugh lines - oh well. LOL!)
