    Pannick attacks are no joke!. Hard to understand until you had one. Good move by Paul. See you tonight at 6p.

    Day 2 Sunday May 16th.

    Woke up very early at 530am but I did nap and slept a lot on Saturday. I was down at the deli at 630am for my coffee and breakfast sandwich to have on my balcony. I noticed that half the beach chairs had towels on them so early. However, all the beach huts were available. It has been very windy so perhaps guests are opting for the pool. I like to alternate. I relaxed in the room after breakfast and decided to try out my duty free bottle of Captain Morgan Black. I've never had the black brand before so I poured a shot over ice. One shot lead to number 2 to 3 then 4. I would not mix this brand with anything. It was smooth with hints of vanilla, coconut and a touch of molasis.

    I made it to pool by 11am despite being up so early but when you are having a few drinks, time tends to go so fast. All the pool chairs were taken so I got a beach hut in the back which was just across the Jacuzzi which was cold so I went inside pool. I did some pool stretches Andrea told me about a few months back and they really help stretch my hip flexors so they don't tighten up when I walk. I was a little sore yesterday but much much better than previous trips knock on wood.

    I had lunch at the pool bar and 2 drinks at 1pm. I was back in room by 2pm as I wanted to nap to meet up with Walt and Andrea at moomba later in the evening. We met at 6pm and we had a great time! Great conversation, joking, drinks. The staff is wonderful but the food so so. Well I just had a personal pizza which was not so good so I can't pass judgement by 1 items but I would not order it again. It was not crowded so I guess locals are not going out as much. Andrea and Paul were nice to give me a ride back to phoenix. I always have a hard time getting a cab there unless it's crowded and cabs are coming there to drop off people but it was a slow night.

    After I got back to room I watched some Netflix until 10pm and called it a night..

    Like you the pool exercises and water walking really help with my arthritis!


    We r lucky here at LaCabana that the WiFi allows for Netflix without much interruption and buffering

    When I am up early I watch Netflix.

    Enjoy your time at the Phoenix

    Day 3 Monday 5/17

    Not such a great day but still better to be in Aruba. Yesterday before I went to bed I started to have digestive issues. Well it continue in the morning. At home I was having issues with constipation but not here. It must be the great water and I think my body caught up.

    I did have a very nice breakfast at Pure Beach some large pancakes with sausage, coffee around 8am. I settled back in the room but I ended up having to go to the bathroom every 30 minutes. Every time I wanted to head out to pool or beach I had to go. So I did not want to take any chances and stayed in room watching netflix. Around 1pm I went to the deli to get a turkey sandwich on toast and a beer. I took a nap from 2pm to 4pm and I was in the room hot jacuzzi by 5pm, showered and from 6 to 7 I drank some ballashi and watch the sunset on the balcony. No dinner tonight as my stomach finally settled but I will have a nice breakfast tomorrow. Some more netflix, bed by 10pm and hope to get some beach time tomorrow...
