    The week we are in now, Lacabana is at 70+% which is terrific.
    How early are you getting to the pool? AND when you get there, does the pool attendant bring your the chairs that you need or are the chairs now back in place like the pre covid days?

    Headed to LaTerraza for dinner. Always good.
    Won the cover all at bingo Friday. Yahoo. When we’re here in October the cover all was $80, today , Monday it was $295. The resort seems regular full by the pool deck. Don’t have to get there at 6 unless you want a front row table but it filled up.
    Yesterday, Sunday was my husband’s birthday. LaCabana gave him a birthday cupcake and card. Nice surprise. Dinner was at Mathews.
    Today we decided to go to Baby Beach. Water was cold. We didn’t have fins with our snorkel and mask and the current was to strong to watch the fish. We left and drove to Casiberi rocks to show the kids. They had never been there before. Lunch was Bright bakery. Dil was in heaven. Ate lunch there and brought back a bunch of goodies. Salt and Pepper tonight for tapas.
    AIDTM THINK.. is it Thoughtful? Helpful? Inspirational? Necessary? Kind?

    On our own again. Dil and son left yesterday.
    Couldn’t get into West Deck for lunch before their flight so went to the seaport and did Linda’s Pancakes.
    Last night we went to dinner at Braise, spelling wrong, anyway they had an Italian menu, a French food menu , and a Greek food menu. We chose the French and had vol au vent, chicken stew in puff pastry. Excellent.
    Doing some laundry today, 5 more days.
    We will be slugs the rest of the time here.I had written that you had to be down by 7 for a table or palapa but it is back to early early.
    High rise seemed a bit more crowded last night. Hyatt casino too. I think this coming week and next will be busier with schools out for Easter vacation.
    All the Arubans have been thanking us for coming down.

    Well resort looks almost full. Need to get out earlier for a table or palapa. We were lucky to be able to get a table at Twist of Flavors tonight. Had their vegi lasagna. Very good but enough for two people. Husband only had grilled shrimp so he was able to help and still left enough to bring home. TOF opened a new restaurant in the same mall by Alhambra. Having senior moment and can’t remember name. Menu looks really interesting, eating there Tuesday so will report.
    Casinos are closing 9 now. At least I won tonight at Alhambra. If I can stay away from a casino till I get home I will be ahead. .

    Brownstone is the new place. We haven't had a chance to try it. I'm looking forward to hear your review of it.
