    You have many places to purchase Palmera. They have a store below Oranjestad that is on the right coming from the airport. All of the grocery stores will have plenty of it. Here is a link to find the different kinds.

    Oh, and you can buy Palmera in the Duty Free before you go through US Customs. I don't believe the Duty Free once you get through US Customs has any locals. I will post when we get back home what I found there.

    They do have Palmera on the US side, but there were not many bottles left when we got there.

    Breakfast


    Our last full day and night in Aruba. We had breakfast on the balcony again and filled up for a lazy morning.


    Beach


    We've spent more time on the beach than any other trip here. We've done all the tourist things at least twice on Aruba and have done most of the local things the last two years. It's all rest and relaxation for the remaining hours. We didn't budge until I took a dip about 1:30.


    Lunch


    We walked 15 feet to the Sand Bar for lunch about 2:00. I had the Chicken Caesar Salad and my wife had Chicken Quesadillas. I drank a few Chills before we went back to our hut to finish the day.


    Dinner


    We went back to get ready about 5:45. We had 7:00 reservations at Carte Blanche, which is about 30 feet as we exit the elevator now. We looked in their new space Wednesday evening, right next to the new high tech exercise building. It is perfectly located for us. The 2 Fools made sure we mentioned that we heard they were afraid to play golf against them. The setting is a little bit more formal than 2 Fools. The new space is very nice. Unlike the U-shaped seating at 2 Fools, this is more of an arc. We sat between a couple from New York with a house on the island and a local couple of a Dutch husband and an Aruban wife. The food was great. We started with a lobster bisque. After that was a ceviche with scallops and salmon. A wonderful lobster dish came out next. The sauce was creamy and the vegetables excellent. The main course was New Zealand rack of lamb with potatoes. It was a large portion and excellent. My wife had the triple chocolate surprise for dessert and I had the tiramisu. We shared and it was fabulous. With an abundant wine pairing the bill came to $328.


    A short walk and we were in the elevator, headed back to our room for the evening.
