    OK, so we figured out that Cold Steel's comments related to the guy that was trying to change clothes on the beach.

    We got home safely around midnight Thursday (or maybe it was technically Friday am). Our flights went well. We were a little concerned about the weather, and had been receiving weather alerts from the airline, but the snow wasn't that bad, and we had no trouble getting home. Our connecting flight was delayed about 45 minutes, but we've had longer delays when the weather has been fine.

    Finishing my trip report -
    We spent the last two days relaxing on the beach and on the private island. Tuesday night we decided to have dinner at the Renn. restaurant, Fresco again, because we had enjoyed it so much the previous week. Tom had the pasta in the wheel again and I had the lasagna. Both were very good. It started raining as we were finishing, so we moved under the restaurant's gazebo for a while. One of the supervisors came by for a chat, and we shared our pictures of the cave explorations with him. He knew about the one with the ladder by Baby Beach, but he had never heard of the one near the anchor.

    Wednesday night - I had made a reservation for our last night at West Deck (our second visit on this trip). We went there twice last year, also. West Deck has become one of our favorite stops. We love the views and the food is great for a casual meal. We thought that we would try something new, but the Balashi Grouper Fingers won out again. They have a new beer, called Carib, that my husband discovered on our first visit this year. I believe that it comes from Trinidad. He had a few of those while I had their delicious sangria. After dinner, we walked around the area, and soaked in our last night in Aruba.

    This was a wonderful trip. Being there for three weeks, we experienced a lot of weather changes. The temperature was nice and mild, averaging about 80 in the daytime. The water in the pools and ocean was a little chilly. We had a lot of rain showers during the second half of our trip. Some days, it would rain about 4 times while we were on the beach in the mornings. They were just passing showers for a few minutes, but some were downpours. We had a lot of wet towels, but were never run off of the beach. The last week was quite windy, with 20 - 30 mile an hour winds for days. Of course, I'd rather have the wind than no wind.

    There were lots of highlights:
    Just relaxing on the beach and the private island in February
    Cave exploring, owl watching, mural touring with Bully
    Getting together with forum friends, Sean and Susan, Robin and Stu
    Dining in so many fabulous restaurants - Yemanja was Tom's favorite. Barefoot was mine (as always)
    Kukoo Kunuku Wine Tour
    Super Bowl Party at Costa Linda

    Thanks for the kind words Hatteras. All of us getting together was a hoot and laughs. We would have never met if it wasn't for this forum. So cool to share island suggestions in real time when in Aruba.
    Thanks Sean and Susan
