    I was sitting poolside at the Holiday Inn next to a couple whom I started to talk to. They were from Canada and it was their first time in Aruba. A iguana strolls by in front of us and the woman went crazy screaming. Then her husband sees the iguana and he was worst. He jumped up and stood on his lounger screaming louder than the wife. Then the wife got on top of her chair. They were both yelling on top of their lungs that they can't take it and that they had to go home. Everyone at the pool and I'm sure on the beach also heard them. Little kids following the iguana told this couple that iguanas won't hurt them. They didn't care. They just kept screaming. I was hysterical laughing but I had to leave as I didn't want anyone to think I was with them.

    I wasn't there to see it but my nephew, his wife and 2 kids were staying at the then Westin. They were having lunch at the poolside Terrace Restaurant. Along comes 2 iguanas and started to have sex right in front of their table. The kids had their sex education class that day.

    I think this counts because we were actually on the island when we read act1966's rendition of their first time at "2 Fools and a Bull"

    We apologize to those who have no idea of what we're talking about...

    On all my trips to Aruba I tend to run into a lot of Americans, Canadians and a few South American visitors; it's very rare that I will run into anyone from T&T during the course of my stay. On my last trip to Aruba in 2016 I invited my friend and her daughters to spend the afternoon at the Surf Club Pool. We were walking around trying to find vacant seats close to the pool and could not seem to find any. This couple called out to me and told me that there were three chairs nearby that were free, I thanked him and could not help but detect a familiar accent. He then said, "Excuse me sir, but your accent sounds very familiar. Where are you from?"
    "Trinidad and Tobago," I replied. "How about you?" "The same!" he replied. Turns out he has been residing in the US for the last 20 years in the same part of Long Island where my relatives now live; and that his older brother was on of my teachers at the last school I attended in T&T before heading to college in Upstate NY.

    The Tranquilo is the best trip we have taken 2X. Can't wait to go again this year.
    The funniest to my family not me is when my kids managed to get me surrounded by iguanas, on my lounger. I don't mind the creatures but when you have about thirty of them surrounding you, on and around the lounger it was pretty freaky.

    That reminds me of an iguana story! We were staying at the Radisson and had another couple of friends with us. The husbands were feeding the iguana nearby, well he went and brought back all of his iguana friends and it felt like they were swarming. My friend and I escaped to the pool for a while till it cleared out. Later she was eating on a lounger, kind of straddling it and one hopped right up to share her fries. My friends reaction and clumsy effort and her voice when she was calling for her husband was so funny. The husbands were in trouble for a few minutes, but now we all laugh and say "they're swarming, they're swarming" anytime we can possible fit it into a conversation.

    A few years ago my Dh was enjoying a leisurely dip in the TS jacuzzi when he noticed an iguana wandering around close to him. He thought nothing of it until said iguana decided to walk on water and then across my Dh to get to the other side!! I was watching from the pool and almost peed laughing at Joe jumping up when he realized the iguana was on his shoulder !!! He still laughs about it everytime he gets into the jacuzzi.

    Our first time drinking Amstel on our honeymoon 1989: We were mid-20s and had a high tolerance for drinking beer (hey, we were in our 20s and had lots of practice). We were unaware of the higher alcohol content of Amstel (at that time it was not Amstel Bright, just plain Amstel and it was potent). We boarded a catamaran for a nice afternoon sail and snorkel. One of the deck hands asked my hubby what he wanted to drink, hubby responded with "beer". The kid handed him an Amstel, which at that time came in tiny bottles. My hubby laughed at the one-gulp sized bottle and said something like "you might as well give me the case". The deck hand tried to persuade us to take it easy, and we ignored the friendly advice. Wellllllll, those little bottles of happy turned us into happy people in no time. I do not remember much about that sailing trip....

    Also, on one trip in the early 90s my sister and her husband went with us to AUA. Hubby and I were not and still are not ones to go to "theme nights" or dinner shows. But, during that trip the HI was having a Western Night. Our BIL insisted on going. It was so bad we laughed all night. It was a combination of not so good food, lackluster entertainment, tacky costumes and performers trying to emulate what one might see at a BBQ with cowboys in the U.S. southwest (the combination of accents was a hoot). The term "Western Night" has not left our vocabulary.










    Hoping for a 30th anniversary trip to our favorite place.

    I was in the little grocery store at La Cabana picking up a few things and a familiar Calypso by Lord Melody called "Mama Look a Boo-Boo" came across the PA system. I started to sing along while I continued looking for stuff, this older gentleman was in there with his wife and he was singing along as well. We both looked at each other with a look that said, "Glad to know that I'm not the only one that know this song."

    I think mine was the first time we rented a catamaran on Palm Beach. I sailed a lot as a younger guy... but had never sailed with DW (with the 'white knuckles') with the amount of wind on Palm. I listened to a lot of 'too fast' comments and was behaving myself after a number of laps from the Marriott down to the Wyndham (Westin...RUI) when we got caught in a rain squall with a wind that really kicked up. One of the pontoons got caught in a swell and.... yup... we went over! We both surfaced and after checking to see she was OK, I started to right the cat.... and got it back up in under a minute. The guys from the rental place were already in their speedboat to come and rescue us.... but just waved as they went by seeing we were OK. Sailing became an annual event.... and as long as I watched the speed DW was quite comfortable with sailing...... well, until we sailed with my BIL and SIL years later and it happened all over again..... but that's another story altogether......
