    It sounds like the casinos have not been kind lately. I’m not looking for generous, but it would be nice to win back a little once in a while.

    Yesterday was another nice day in Aruba. Started the day with a another jog that went better than the day before so thats a plus. We went to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Ritz, lol. The breakfast is amazing and almost a daily venture at this point. The 14.95 for CJ to chow is to good to pass up. After breakfast we did a combo of the beach and pool. At about 4pm we headed to go-carting which was fun. Wow do those carts fly!!! We were a part of a large group of about 14 or so all on the track at the same time. If you have not seen the rack it is huge! After the track we headed to shower because wow do you sweat with a helmet on.

    Dinner last night was back over at BLT where we had a shrimp cocktail and a crab cake for apps, then CJ and I had filet which was excellent and T had the braised short ribs she said were good but not as good as our steaks. We also had a baked potato that was surprising amazing.

    After dinner T and I played in the casino as CJ was in the Divi playing on his phone. We broke even only for me to back over later to give a donation. Got a good sleep and I am going to get prepared to go another a run for the 3rd morning in a row....starting something good here, lol. I have not run in years....I did a weight loss competition with friends about a decade ago and I got crazy about and would run daily but that is about the last time I ran consistently.

    Today is going to be a nice beach day by the looks of things. That said plenty of water on the balcony tells me we had another nice rain over night. Thinking dinner at Casa Nonna may be in order today...woke up thinking about their pasta, lol.

    Till later.
    Just finished trip 36 and have trip 37 Booked.

    thanks for sharing Jay!

    we had rain in the Ponton neighborhood on and off from about 3 am til 7.
    at about 6:45 I could hear the rain AND hear kids yelling and laughing.
    I looked out our door and it was pouring and the boys were in the pool with Becca sitting under the pergola lifeguarding.
    those kids are pool rats!
    THINK.. is it Thoughtful? Helpful? Inspirational? Necessary? Kind? sidtm

    Just got back from the beach! Longest day on the beach in our history of trips. The ocean felt amazing today. We played some soccer and football on the beach and relaxed the rest of the time. CJ got a bit worn out and headed back to the room but we just chilled and enjoyed a late lunch at Madero before returning to the beach/water. Today as very relaxing. We had planned on going to Bugaloe for dinner but that is in question at this point. Whatever we do I am sure we will enjoy it.

    Ha ha- kinda my my thoughts right now too, lol. Just took a 30 min power nap and I am ready to go! I think the power nap erased the drinking I did all day and I am ready to go now. I/we slept through possibly grabbing a spot at Bugaloe so we are getting ready to head back to the Ritz to figure out our food plans...when we get there we will figure it out as we really don't have any preferences today.
