    Dan & Bobbie are finally in Aruba!!

    Our daughter picked us up at 3:15 am on Tues. morning and deposited us at the airport. It was an uneventful flight, but I must say, each one gets harder, just can’t seem to get comfortable. We checked in at the Courtyard where we will spend 3 nights. We went down to The Beach Bar at the Playa Linda and we each had a couple of Heineken’s. We then ordered Amstel Brites and when they were delivered, we were told the couple across the bar had picked up the tab for that round. We went over to thank them and inquired as to whether we had met. They said no, that they just thought we were cute and reminded the guy of his in-laws. Well. how about that!! We ate at the Beach Bar, just had grouper bites and french fries. Both were good. We called it a night early and zonked out. We each had the best night’s sleep in a long while. We spent the better part of today at the pool. It just felt good to lay around and enjoy the warmth. Our daughter, Catherine, came today and will spend the next nine days with us. She’s a lot of fun and we enjoy being able to spend time with her. We went to The Beach Bar for happy hour and then over to Smokey Joe’s for dinner. I have to say, that is by far our favorite place to eat. We shared a full rack of ribs plus a couple of appetizers. So good!! Well, that’s about it. I know, pretty boring , but well, what can I say? We’re a boring couple. Now, I don’t know how this is going to come out as I’ve never cut and pasted. So we’ll see. That’s it for now.

    We spent most of Thursday hanging arounds the pool area. Went to dinner at Craft and Lola. It was very good. Had ice cream at Gelatissimo and that sure hit the spot. Tomorrow we move to the Ocean Club. I hope we get a good room!
