    Thank you all for the advice. Don't think I can do any of that on my small tablet so will give you snippets. I'm a technical challenge!
    Yesterday, arrived late due to northeast weather but all good. Room exactly where I had asked. Did manage to post Chophouse dinner last night. Was happy but exhausted. Best night's sleep I've had in a long time.

    Day 2, up bright and early. We've got tradegales, not winds! But feels great. Lovely breakfast at ike's (those cinnamon rolls are divine!). A full beach day of lazing, swimming and reading Sandra Brown 's new novel. early dinner at ike 's (goat cheese/watermelon salad and yummy red snapper. Too tired for dessert (not like me!). It doesn't sound exciting but this is exactly how I wanted it to be. In early tonight.

    Forgot to tell you all about the turtle nest! There's one left on Eagle Beach and it's directly in front of Manchebo. According to Setchel (bellman, security and all around super guy) hatching could occur any time now. Could I be that lucky!? You know who will be the first to know if I do!
    Beaching again tomorrow but thinking about an afternoon massage. Then dinner at Chophouse. They make a mean Cosmo! Ok, I'm really signing off for the night now!

    Day 3, up bright and early after a good sleep. These beds are really comfy. Long beach walk that got my lazy bones moving then breakfast (no cinnamon rolls today darn). Letting the sun block soak in and then another lazy day in the sand. I've been had about taking pics but will make up for it today and try to post or will send to andrea. Later dudes and dudettes!

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    Good morning Lisa and everyone else,

    Manchebo was the first place I stayed in Aruba in 1980. Loved it and have great memories of it.

    Glad to hear you are doing those wonderful "Aruba" things we love so much.

    Do you or will you be heading over to the Alhambra during your vacation? We love its redevelopment over the past few years and we'll be there in October.

    Pegmeister; coconut French toast? Where, please, tell me where? Between Dutch pancakes and coconut French toast I'm going have to bring along a case of Metphormin if I indulge in these oh so wonderful things.

    Looking forward to hearing more Lisa.


    Glenn


    One last thing Lisa. Are you a shopper? Any new stores to browse through.
