    We're back and it's soo good:) pt. 2

    Tuesday

    Anniversary day
    No better place to celebrate than here.

    Running on the beach watching a cruiseship on it's way into the harbour - nice.[groundhog day]

    Breakfast and presents. Messages and calls from home.
    Off to the beach now.

    Later today Oranjestad and Flying Fishbone

    We went into Oranjestad for lunch. We ate at Cocoplum in the Main street.
    Good food and great natural juices and good service.

    Coffee at Starbucks and then some shopping.
    And after some debate at Benneton(took me five minutes to convince the cashier that a 20$, a 10$, a 5$ and a 1$ makes 36$ not 41$) we went to Ling's for food and beverage.

    After we returned to the hotel we were called up from the management.
    We were asked to appear in interview for the Bucuti. The shooting will take place on monday. Sadly we had to decline, we're going home on Saturday

    In the evening Flying Fishbone

    It took some time to get there, but it was worth it.
    Good reception, nice table and an excellent waiter(David)
    We had Alaskan Salmon and Seafood Pasta - very, very good.
    After the intro cocktails we asked for bottle of white wine.
    I suggested one and explained for David that my wife doesn't like to dry white wine. He instead suggested another Riesling. It was great and 18$ cheaper. - top man.

    Dessert were Creme Brulee and Chokolate Fudge - very good.
    All in all a vefy good experience - again

    Wednesday

    Running on the beach watching a cruiseship on it's way into the harbour - nice.[groundhog day - again]

    Then beach life for five hours

    After that we went to Hi-rise area.

    brownies at Moka, beer at A Taste of Belgium and a walk at the beach.
    - and Havana Nines had a new collection on show, so another shirt bought.

    In the evening we walked to The Screaming Eagle. Lamb Rack and Swiss chokolate for dessert for me and my wife had Scallops Risotto and Tarte Tatin.

    It was very good and the service was great.

    My entree and dessert was very similar to my order at MJ, so let's compare

    Lamb Rack was best at MJ. Dessert and service was best at the TSE. Interior and decor clearly best at the TSE.
    Aircon at TSE was to cold, though

    All in all I think TSE was best. We'll be going back to both places, though
    Walking home barefoot at the beach - nice

    Thursday
    Running on the beach watching a cruiseship on it's way into the harbour - nice.[groundhog day - again, again]

    Beach life - again

    Thank you. It was wonderful to celebrate here.

    - and to think five years ago we said:"We'll go on holiday the same place twice"

    Our next time here will be the fifth - and there will be a next time
    Can't wait to come back

    Next Aruba trip in

    We love Aruba and the very lovely Arubans. The restaurants and especially the Bucuti hotel&staff. Super service and it's like a second home
