    In regards to damage reports at Old Man & the Sea,

    "The restaurant has received a few damages but nothing major. The weather died down until late this afternoon with the chance it will continue tonight. They will be probably reopen this week.
    So, people can call in to make their reservations."

    I am sure you won't have to worry! My husband and I were there last August/September for our honeymoon during Hurricane Felix. We knew the storm was coming, but didn't panic until the morning of, when we went down to the lobby and saw alot of the guests milling around. There were sandbags at the doors preventing the water from coming in and all the patio furniture had been brought in the night before. There was no electricity, just generator power. Flights were cancelled, all except ours that is! We thought we might get to stay another night. The staff at the Marriott were all so helpful. They had all the necessary information and were willing to let us stay another night, in another room, for a discounted rate. We kept in touch with our families in CT & MA for flight updates and alas we had to go to the airport after all. Ours was the only plane there, no others were coming in or going out that day. Our cab driver helped my husband pry open the doors to the airport because they hadn't fully opened yet. Everyone was so helpful, I am sure if there is a problem, the locals will take good care of you. Don't worry and have a great honeymoon! A rainy day in Aruba is better than any day not in Aruba! And just think, if you can't go outside, that is another reason to stay in your room!

    The flooding will be gone by then. The island depends a great deal on tourism and realizes they must do their utmost, after securing their own homes and belongings, to bring things back up to speed for their guests. With just shy of two weeks, they will have time to get everything back to normal for you.

    Sunshine today!

    Ah this photo is even better, but remember, you do need a couple of clouds , to keep down the sunburn.

    Another report posted from someone on another forum,

    "Passing by Brisas del Mar, we were surprised it was open. So we ate there. The damage wasn't as bad as I thought. The outdoor section has a lot of debris. They managed to put away all outdoor furnitures yesterday morning knowing the worst was coming. The pier where the sea view seats were located is made of reinforced concrete so it was intact. The wooden handrailings on the edge of the pier were completely gone. The remaining outdoor section needs a lot of clean-up. Talina, the only waitress tonight said insurance will come tomorrow to assess the damage. She was very optimistic saying it will be fixed in a week. But Brisas del Mar is open. Only the indoor section that is. I had my usual red snapper."
