Thanks, Cindy! Glad you enjoyed the pictures.

I just noticed that I'm not too often in the pictures as most of the time, I was the one taking them! :)
But here are a few:

Not sure when I will be able to return to Aruba as I might go again to Germany next year to visit again with my parents. They both are at a age where it's hard to tell who long they will be around.

When I looked at the airport pictures, I noticed it was the last time that Continental flew from Central Texas - Houston - Aruba. A approx. 7 hour trip. Which was perfect. I also remember that Continental had told my, my return trip had been cancelled!! And I would have to fly to Bogota/Columbia and from there back to Texas! It was quite a hassle. Finally, Continental made an exception and I could fly back with Delta, going from Aruba to Atlanta and then Central Texas. In the meantime, flight to Aruba have been very inconvenient, going there was ok but coming back would have taken 20 or 30 or more hours!! But I will keep checking.

I have another great sets of photos from another Aruba trip which DH put on a slideshow with great music. Unfortunately, that server went out of business and the link is not working anymore. I will try if there is a way to retrieve those pictures.

I remember when I was in Arubathe very first time, I would smile the entire week. I felt such a happiness in my heart, everyone I saw or met was smiling and happy, everything I saw was new and beautiful.

Sorry to hear that your parents are not here anymore, they are just a big part of our life and who we are.

The time I spend with my Dad is very special to me as I was not allowed to have contact with him almost my entire life because the woman he had married when I was only four years old would not allow it. Now she has passed away. And last year was the first time that I could actually meet my Dad and talk with him. In those conversations I realized how much we not only look alike but also think alike, even have the same gestures. I'm his spitting image, inside and out. It's a very long story, I could write a book about it. :)

Here are some pictures from my Aruba trip February 2009.

Love looking out the window of the airplane! Got lucky to get some nice areal shots while approaching Aruba.

Looking at all those pictures I once again see the "Love affair" I have with Aruba and capturing the beauty I see with my camera!

Enjoy! :D
