    Tracey, we got there (just past the Ritz, across from the kite/wind surfing places) a little before 10:00 and actually jumped out of the plane around 11:00, and we were back at Surf Club by 12:15. Are you sure Jon is going by himself? You will have to listen about it for a long time. Today we met some folks by the pool who were talking about the folks that were skydiving. One of them actually had a picture they took yesterday from their balcony and it was me! I was amazed!

    We went and saw Scott and Leslie yesterday since they only work Wednesdays now. Had the Italian beef sandwich which was awesome as always. Washed it down with a vodka lemonade. They are doing great in semi retirement and seem to really enjoy it.

    That is crazy cool! I can't even imagine! And imagining is all I'll ever be able to do. I give you both tons of credit. I can't even fly in a regular size airplane without squeezing my kids' hands & crying like a baby. JUMP OUT of a plane? Not in this lifetime....but thankful I have people like you whom I can live vicariously through

    I am the dare devil.
    By the way love your Red Sox shirt. Just got tickets for June 27th the day before we go to Aruba. Just need to see Ortiz play one more time before he retires.
    I have received many compliments on that shirt, of course it has a number 2 and Bogaerts on it!

    Cinco de Mayo was a fun day on Aruba. We made a speed run to Lings, I think I really like them better than Super Food. The parking is better and the prices are competitive, plus the crowds are smaller. They were open for a few hours due to it being Ascension Day. Following a losing day at poolside bingo, we enjoyed the margarita special at Pelican Nest in the afternoon, the bartenders had sombreros and maracas and poured perfect drinks. We followed that up with a great Mexican meal at Chihuahua's for dinner. This will become our favorite Mexican place I'm sure, the service and food were really good, the staff entertaining and the prices were great. They have specials a few days a week like all you can eat tacos (I think for $12.95) and other things. We wrapped up the day at MooMba, sharing drinks with our favorite semi-retired couple on the island.
