    Another great day with mostly sun and wind. We've had no turtle hatchings that we know about and there are only 10-11 nests on the beach this year. Patti checks every day for progress during her walks. The weather has been no less than outstanding......

    Dinner was at Elements last night and the food and service was really top notch. Lots of space between the tables. Interestingly enough the table service has changed a bit. When the server delivers the food.... it's not placed on the table, but left on a tray table side for the guest to place on the table. Couldn't understand how that worked with our cocktails sitting on the tray and not in front of us when our server left..... til Patti clued me in..... good to have her around! Patti really loved the romantic setting.... and that's a criteria for her with restaurant selection!

    Covid tests negative and we had the results printed in the lobby for us last night. We're just not ready for anything other than paper for boarding etc.... but we'll eventually get there!

    This has been a wonderful trip for us ('cept the mean casino) and I really need to get with my girl and enjoy our last day on the beach.

    The whole tray table thing is kind of strange but glad you both enjoyed your dinner. Nice photo in Aruba Today, by the way! Enjoy your last full day and the beach. Safe travels tomorrow.

    I'm just getting caught up on reading. I love the picture! Your meals sound great as does your time on the beach. I will miss your reports.

    Thankfully, you and Patti were able to help that girl. It is sad when parents do things like that. In the US and Canada, we generally keep a better eye on our children than many other countries where kids are given more free rein and not so old, older children watch their younger siblings. I have a cousin who lives outside North America and his brother has told me how small kids routinely go places by themselves. They think nothing of letting a 3 or 4 years old go by themselves to play with a friend or cousin several apartment buildings down the block. In our mind it is crazy, but in their society it is normal.

    Enjoyed all your daily reports and pictures too! So strange to see so many empty palapas though. I would not like the side tray for my food/drinks would probably drop or spill things, lol....Congrats on your certificate I set my friends up a few years back with their 30 years it is very nice to have something to frame or keep with your Aruba memories. Safe travels home, enjoy your last evening in paradise.

    Our last full day is always kind of a melancholy day..... but we made the most of it.... well, until I let go of Patti's flamingo tube which actually launched toward South America... hope some kid gets it and enjoys it. My girl wasn't the happiest with me over that.... but now I'm forgiven and it was an accident.

    Just a lazy day on the beach with another lunch with our friends at Pega Pega..... Dinner was at Sunset Grille which is a last night tradition for us. Food was excellent, service slow and the place was very crowded. Another chocolate dessert for me.... hope I don't kill the scale when I get home....

    Off to Alhambra for my nightly beating... and back to the room by midnight..... gonna catch a few hours of beach time and then to the crying room. Maybe I can wave at Jay (Aruba4ever) when he arrives the afternoon on the plane that takes us back to the 'other side'.........!
