    Hatteras is in Aruba 1/31/20 - 2/20/20

    Good morning everyone. We arrived in sunny Aruba yesterday afternoon. Bully greeted us at the airport with a hug. We feel like vacation has started when we see Bully. He took us to Costa Linda on the new highway, and we were here in less than 10 minutes. So far, all of the locals that we have talked to are loving the new road, but no one is happy about the changes to the beach road.

    After getting settled, we went to our first happy hour and sat on the beach to watch our first sunset. Then it was off to Pizza Bob's for our first island pizza, and a visit with Alex, the host that seats everyone. After walking back to Costa Linda, we unpacked and turned in early, exhausted after a long trip and 3 hours of sleep from the night before. We both slept well, and I woke up at 6:00 and discovered that Tom was still asleep. He likes to get up before dawn to get his favorite palapa. He jumped up and hurried down to the beach, and managed to secure a front row palapa, so all is good. We stopped by the coffee shop for our first caramel lattes, and are getting ready to head down to the beach for the day. We'll probably head to Ling's late this afternoon. We have no plans tonight. It is a perfect day in paradise.

    Yay, another trip report! Glad you made it safe and sound. I like your priorities that you waited to unpack until after drinks and dinner.

    Always unpack after drinks and dinner! That's definitely a priority.

    Glad to hear that you have arrived, are settled, and are comfy!
    I'm green with envy.

    Irausquin Blvd is absolutely in need of something.....wider, better lighting..... I do not like that they changed it so drastically.

    Hmmm, I usually unpack and settle in right away before I run out of steam. But I think I like your way better! Going to do that next trip. Hope you are enjoying your first full day in paradise!
