Spectacular? Wonderous? I will post a video on youtube if I can. Dd shot it today,it is mainly the turtle nests, but you will get the idea. Up at this end the only rock are those surrounding the big palapa on the far side of the boardwalk in front of 1200 and then down by 1400 where the beach begins to curve.

Enjoy, I hope screaming eagle was as good as you planned. That Bully is so thoughtful, very nice Welcome. As far as your little Movie Star, watch it, she'll be handing out Autographs soon. The end of a Long day 1, rest well tonight

Sitting here under my palapa.
The early morning clouds have burned off and it is going to be another beautiful day in Aruba. Just some white fluffy clouds.
Dh is off to Avis...'nough said...will report back.
Dd is still in dreamland and will be there for a few hours at least. We figure a good 12 hour sleep will be good catch up so that puts her at about 11 a.m. then she will go to breakfast. By then the pizza bar will be open so it will be the start of another great day for a kid who doesn't have a care in the world. Kids club afterwards?

The three of us had the most amazing dinner last night at the Screaming Eagle. We love Passions and this too is another new favorite. Dh especially is a "foodie" and was just so thoroughly impressed by the menu selection, the preperation, the taste and the presentation. They had one of my favorite wines by the glass and wonderful sea scallops which are a rare treat for me living in a land locked part of Georgia.

Dinner tonight is here at the resort at the Red Parrot. We have reservations there tomorrow night as well at the request of our friends who arrive tomorrow. That is just fine, lots of great choices there as well...I think I hear an Onion Soup calling my name...Dd wouldn't order shrimp last night because she already knew she would be ordering it tonight, probably tomorrow night as well too! :D

Please excuse any typos, mispellings or grammar...no caffeine yet. :(

If you haven't had the Churasco steak at the Red Parrot yet, you might want to try it.
That is, if you're a carnivore... I personally look forward to it, almost to the point of trying to make a reservation before we even get to Aruba, all in the hope that the restaurant will have the steaks.

As for the rocks, is the stack/pile of rocks in front of 1500 gone? You know, by the end of the shuffleboard court? That would be a real treat, especially for those tenderfoot types... like me.

If you should see Imelda and Renata, please sent regards from Helen and Hank from Florida. We hope to see them in November. They are very sweet ladies. Thanks.

Sounds like you have a great start to your vacation! We were in 1307 just a few days ago and love that building at the Tam - it's so close to everything and our palapa was right outside our door.

Bully told us about your Brights and your daughter's coke but swore us to secrecy! He is SUCH a nice person and thinks quite highly of you!

Please give Andrea at the pizza bar a hug for Teri, Jim & Danielle - we already miss her.....

Have a GREAT time!!

We have been extremely busy doing nothing but lounging, swimming and reading. Dd playing with her friends.
Today we sail aboard the Tranquilo and tonight is dinner at the Chefs Table.
The weather? The first couple of days the mornings were nice but afternoons turned mostly cloudy with one being overcast.
Yesterday, the day before and today however are clear blue skies with just some white puffy clouds. Windy goes without saying in that June is the windiest month of the year. Keeps life bearable and nightime is just downright beautiful.
Below is not from today, but the kind of skies we have been having.

Miss you all, hope you are having fun! Someone else will need to step up and win the beer drinking contest now that I am gone!:rolleyes:

We ALL miss you too. :( Sorry we got back too late Thursday night. :o I understand we missed you by about 15 minutes. C. wasn't feeling too well after so much partying the night before anyway. :rolleyes: No ocean today as the water is VERY rough. We are off to the donkey sanctuary and possible Boca Catalina this afternoon for snorkeling. Already rode up there and the water up there is flat unlike here...:(

Thank you, I appreciate that.
We had a great trip.
I will be gathering my thoughts over the next few days.
We had some wonderful experiences and one not so good one.
Have to decide whether I want to put it all into words.
