    Don't know if that will happen. Rumor has it that condos will be built on the bluff overlooking Rodgers Beach. Sad, that area was so nice at one time. Piers were destroyed over the years and never rebuilt. Same with the high dive platform that was there back in the 30s, 40s and 50s.

    this plan for the golf has been on paper for a long time.
    i guess we wait and see.

    if the residents of aruba are for it, then we can object frequently and forcefully but it is their home?
    look how much objections blocked the ritz?! not :-(

    If you're looking for an ice cold beer (and Balashi on tap in frosty mugs) and a bite to eat when you're in the Rodger's Beach area, go to the Rum Reef Bar at the dive shop near Baby Beach. Great place and friendly staff as well. Within the next year they said they hope to expand the bar/restaurant in back of the dive shop so that you can sit on a deck with a view of the water.

    Thanks Amy. Will be back on "The Rock" starting June 11 for 3 weeks and, as usual, will spend many days back in area. Will definitely try the Rum Reef Bar. And a ride up to Colorado Point is always on the agenda. There is so much history there and just hope that any new development will not disturb what remains of the base of the gun turnets and watch tower.

    It is a shame. Same thing happened about 6 years ago and the hundreds of conch there tasted like oil. We (man) have perfected the art of destroying what nature thought was forever. Odd thing is that most of our destruction of natural resources happens in the use of or the seeking for more ...... Natural resources.
    Oil, Gold and wood played a dirty trick on us all. We are enslaved to it.

    be well

    The history and true stories surrounding that area are staggering. Incredibly interesting.

    Very true Charles. For you history buffs there is a mountain of information on the web site: lago-colony.com created and updated by Dan Jansen. See stories and pictures taken back in the 30s, 40s, 50s, etc. Many of us who were born and raised on the island have submitted information to Dan who updates the site when needed. So what some see as progress for the island, others see as destruction; conchs being a good example as indicated by Charles. And those divers that take part in inspecting the coral and reefs periodically along the west coast, see what is happening and it isn't pretty. I know because there are a number of ex-Lago employees who take part in documenting what they see. And since the next Lago Reunion will be held in June 2012, the group will again be diving in the areas. Enough said. Looking forward to being back on "The Rock" and enjoying the sun, wind, sand, water but most of all the wonderful people of Aruba!!!! Maybe one day I will meet Charles as we exit the airport heading to pick up our car from Amigo Car Rental.
    Be well Charles,

    dolores....is there anyway you could give us a "look at the colony" thru your eyes?
    i am assuming that your parents (dad) was employed at the refinery.
    i am assuming that you grew up in the colony?

    can you give us a looksee into your life as a kid there?

    if you want to post it in the Aruba General section, that'd be ok......or i can enter it into charles' area SNIPPETS as a "special guest entry".

    think about it.
    many of us would love to hear.
