    Boy I love the Flora store!
    Your photos are amazing and beautiful and still do not do it justice. (I do not mean that in an insulting way)
    Folks need to see that store.
    A few years ago I bought a beautiful Christmas owl......covered with "bling" and he is amazing. I leave him out year round.
    I also bought a beautiful white peacock tree topper there. It is beautiful.
    Dear hubby was saying during the entire Flora expedition.........Hurry, let's get back to the beach.
    <sigh>

    Every year I say I’m going to make it to the Flora store but never do. Tom resists because he says we already have too many Christmas decorations. He’s a Scrooge that way! Love the photos.

    Window shopping is not my favorite either, but if the wife wants, the wife gets

    Friday Day 24:

    We got an earlier start today, so after lunch we sat at the pool for awhile before heading to the beach. We ended back up at the same place as yesterday, by Casa Del Mar, before deciding on a happy hour.

    Went to Riccardo’s again and had a couple of beverages. We had planned on going to Café 080 for dinner, but the wife wanted to stay at Ricardo’s. We hadn’t been to Café 080 in a while, mainly because of their menu, so I explained to her that it has changed and off we went.

    We ordered Chicken Sate, a vegetarian flatbread pizza and mushroom soup. Everything was amazing and the wife thanked me for talking into going. We had a couple of beverages and sat in the back, at their now expanded seating area for awhile and just enjoyed the atmosphere there. Total came to $57.24 plus tip and about half of the were for beverages. We'll be back...

    We returned to the condo and turned on the TV, which has been worthless this trip as we both fall asleep after 15 minutes. Who really travels to Aruba to watch TV anyway…not me.

    If you hear anything about a new secret Speak Easy called Apothotheek, opening this month down town, please let us know. Sounds very interesting. They won awards at the bartenders brawl in Aruba.They claim they make serious elixers. They had a popup place around town before. If anyone can find this place ,its you guys. You trully are the "off the Beaten Track" Explorers! Thanks

    I saw your photos of Cafe 080 and was surprised at the food choices. Last time we were there the menu was really limited. It’s a cool spot and the staff is incredibly friendly. I just don’t know how we’re going to decide where to go. Our list is way too long for the number of days we’ll be there!!

    The staff were excellent. We had at least three different people tending to us.

    We haven't come across it yet. Not sure if we'll get to the downtown area again this trip, as we only have three full days left. We'll be back in three months, so we might have to look for it then.
