    Sunday Day 12:

    Another day poolside and then off to The Beach Bar at the Divi for happy hour, thanks to Pegmeister’s tip on the band, Honey Pot, playing from 6-8. They were playing with a three-piece band tonight, and we stayed until 7:30 or so. It was the perfect night!

    Went back to the condo and cooked dinner on one of the public grills.

    Tomorrow we get together with forum members Robin and Stu for dinner. Looking forward to catching up with them!

    Monday Day 13:

    Back to Super Foods today to pickup some essentials. Found some Corona Extra beer on sale at 52.59 Afl, for a 24 pack of 12oz cans…. cheap!

    From there we went to the Arubian Taste mini market. We are not rum drinkers but wanted to give it a try. We sampled at least a dozen types, and all were very good. Walked away with a couple bottles and headed back to the condo.

    Sat poolside for a bit, and then got ready for dinner. Our reservations were at six o’clock at Las Ramblas, where we were meeting forum members Robin and Stu. We decided to stop at Peta Peta for a round of drinks before dinner, and Robin and Stu joined us. We were seated promptly at six, and we all enjoyed our meals. We were the last ones to leave the restaurant, a little after ten, as we sat in the night breeze and caught up. We had a great time! I’m sure we’ll get together again this trip.

    Made our way back to the condo and turned in.

    Tuesday Day 14:

    Beach day...back to Eagle Beach for some sun time. Very pleasant day with nice winds and moderate waves.

    Back to the pool for a bit and then over to Mathews, for the tail end of happy hour. Stayed for awhile after it ended, enjoying the cooling nighttime breeze and finished our beverages. They were packed for dinner, as it was their rib night special.

    We decided to eat in tonight, so headed back to the condo and utilized the grill.

    Retired shortly afterwards and watched a little TV...simple day.

    Thanks God you guys don't like rum-12 tastings! I hate to see what you do drink if you did. That's a fun place and as a forum member here stated, a good price in a liter of vodka for $24 U.S. We always stop buy for some rum too.

    Thanks for posting

    We walked into the store and the first thing we said was, "we don't drink rum" and the women replied, "then why are you here" We were actually picking some up for Robin and Stu. I don't drink rum, because it usually doesn't end well. Let's just say I'm older and wiser. The wife has a wicked sweet tooth, so she loved all of the flavored and creamy rums. I knew I'd be in trouble drinking those, as I didn't have my insulin with me, but what the heck. I spent the next twelve hours getting my blood sugar to flat line to my normal.

    I usually drink vodka on the rocks, and Grey Goose is my choice, but I remembered the post on the forum, about the vodka there. I did sample it, but it wasn't for me. When we landed at the airport, we went to Duty Free, and picked up two 1.75L of Absolute, at $32.00 a bottle...couldn't pass it up. Otherwise I reach for Miller beer, or something similar. The wife drinks champagne or white wine.
