    The Old Windmill, the long-gone Spritzer and Furhrmann store, certain stones along the beach, anything to do with the old Aruba Caribbean Hotel. What a child remembers. Taps for the natural bridge.

    Glad to do it. And thanks very much. It was such a special time for us. I figure that those times deserve a nice review. While I'm around, I should help bring that time into focus.

    I certainly will share more. Aruba was a big deal in our family.

    A wall in the Bali Bar (Aruba Caribbean) and a publicity brochure shot being prepared. My father was overseeing that.

    As a new hotel it was pretty wide-open - almost like a world's fair pavilion. I'm sure the turf has been turned over many times.

    Here's are poolside and room service menus from the Bali Bar (although the food is from the Divi-Divi Coffee Shop), from about 1962. I have a slightly earlier food menu edition with even lower prices.
