    Last beach day..... just a simple repeat of days past..... lunch at Pega Pega and Patti finally had Nacio Smile..... nice drink! I had a couple of Brights…. only a couple of 3 Bright lunches this year.... it's exhausting getting those limes in the bottle..... I just can't keep up anymore...!

    Hung on the beach til about 6:00 and Patty was between Matthew's and Sunset Grille for dinner and decided on Sunset..... the only dinner restaurant we've been to more often would be Mme J's. Had a wonderful dinner right at sunset sitting outside..... way too much food. A Grey Goose Sour for me and a couple of fancy name cocktails for Patti...… I guess the special name justifies the 15 price.... ouch! Split an app, pork chop for me, filet and crab cake for Patty, creamed spinach and dessert for me and decafe for Patti. Way too much food.... but all wonderful....! The service charge here is 18% plus 6% taxes.... plus tip.... holy crap, I spent more on dinner last night than at any other time on the island.... but it was good with perfect service!

    Wait for it..... wait for it...…. Back to Alhambra last night for a couple of ups and downs at the blackjack tables.... and ups and downs at video poker. Always crowded til after midnight.... so it's tough to find a good seat at a black jack table...… kept about even and then had a 500 negative run at blackjack and decided to bail and rest for travel day.... so...…. I had to put 100 into 'that' video poker machine toward the exit and played for quite some time... up a bit.... down to almost nothing..... then luck turned and had a couple of runs up to over 100 again.... finally hit 4 deuces for 1000.... and that was my absolute last play.... I didn't even clear the win. I cashed out for $1145 and turned the ticket into money at the cashier..... and retreated back to Manchebo! I'm comfortably up for the trip with my casino stuff.

    Just had breakfast at Ike's and it was OK.....just OK... but in fairness, it's tough to maintain a buffet for a low volume place....! Packed and ready to go hang in the crying room and we'll check in from the other side..... thanks for checking out my reports..... I always enjoy seeing yours!

    I looked forward to each days report. Getting in the mood for our August trip. I don’t know what was the highlight the dining, beach or the casino wins. It was exciting. I don’t think anyone could have a bad trip to Aruba. We are all so blessed we are able to spend some time in paradise. I know I am. Thanks again for sharing.
