    WOW I really have to check out that pastry area at superfoods the next time. I remember seeing it by the bread area but I just glanced at it I did not want to look but now Andrea has tempted me.

    The AC may be taking so much moisture out that it feels much colder than it is. We find that it gets really cool in the condo once the sun goes down.

    That bakery is truly something else. I was supposed to take pics of the treats I bought, but I dug into them before I could get a pic. LOL. I miss it dearly.

    Friday December 4.

    Ok, I miss my puppy.
    I said it to Paul earlier, and he kind of gave me the stink eye.

    We spent 3 hours at the pool and dodged a few raindrops.
    I spent 2 hrs in the water, taking advantage of no one else in the pool, I swam some laps and then went back to some water walking and then hopped into the water exercise class. (I do not call it aerobic)

    We were bored and needed to change things up!

    Back to Alto Vista for more prayers and photos.
    Over to Noord Bakery, Arashi , Catalina Cove, Lighthouse and then decided that we were starving as we had not even eaten breakfast. Just like Tracey and Jon, we could not come to an agreement on where to go for lunch……………then we saw a vision……………….the golden arches.
    After our less than gourmet lunch, (which included the special sauce) we headed to Superfoods as we were low on milk.
    We spent another hour in the pool and called it a day at 3 pm.
    I told Paul that I was just going to “rest my eyes”…….almost 3 hrs later we woke up!!

    Dinner was filet and onion and pepper on skewers.
    Paul did well as mine were rare and his well done!
    I made some pasta salad yesterday and we had it for dinner tonight.
    Our veggies of the day were celery in the pasta salad and peppers on the skewer.
    I am craving a huge wedge salad.

    And that brings us to now………..sitting in our room, wrapped in a comforter, watching tv and doing a lot of nothing.

    I was also craving salad. Pam and I split a goat cheese salad at Casa Tua, it was delicious. I hear Daniel's has a terrific wedge salad.

    December 6, Saturday

    As the other Aruba travelers have reported we had an on again off again rain day.
    Not a wash out by any sense of the word, but truly a pain in the buttocks.

    We hopped in the car b4 9 am for a trip to Reflexions, but it it downpoured downtown.
    So we turned around came back here and the sun shined……..til it didn’t.
    We stayed wrapped in our towels under the umbrella and waited for the sun to come back, and it did! Til it went away again. We played the game til about 3 pm and then called it a day. To say I was chilled was an understatement. Never ever do I go into a public hot tub…but I did here at lacabana as I just needed to warm up. It looked clean and smelled clean so I sat there for 5 minutes.

    We had a wonderful dinner at Bavaria.
    We each had a German brew….28 oz and it was so filling, but was delicious.
    I had the cucumber salad and the chicken schnitzel and spaetzle. Paul had the chicken schnitzel too. Peg…the singer is long gone!! Whew.

    Casino was Alhambra tonight and we were in and out of there in just 20 min.
    I did not play and Paul had a small win, so he took it and we came back to LaCabana.

    Tomorrow will be breakfast here at the Islander Grill and then will try Reflexions again.

    New food photos added.
    A couple of pix of my Lilygirl and her playmate.
    Does anyone know how Walt’s photos got added to mine?
