    Does Holiday Inn charge for all palapas (for non-elites) or just the first few rows?

    Bri, I think they charge for all of them. Cheaper to get the IHG credit card. With that you get Platinum Elite status and that gets you a free palapa for the duration. Annual fee is $99 soooo...

    Having flashbacks of recent hurricanes and nor'easters. Man did it rain in Palm Beach today. I mean like tropical storm wind and rain. The skies were dark and gloomy most of the day with occasional sprinkles, but around 3:30 or so the bottom dropped out.

    We had a few days like that this past winter. There were mornings that it woke me up.

    Aruba is sooo small yet the weather from one side of the island to the other is shocking at points.
    Trip 32 begins on June 5.

    Day 17, Mother's Day. We got up to a wonderful day. Nice and sunny and warm, typical Aruba weather. We had a bagel and cream cheese for breakfast in the room and headed down to our palapa. It was already set up thanks to Roy the beach attendant. We sat and looked at the water and the dark ominous clouds to the south. It sprinkled very lightly for a few minutes, but by then we were floating in the sea. Lunch was at Oceanside bar and consisted of a grilled chicken sandwich and a burger. Back out in the water we saw a young lady we met the day before trying her hand a paddle boarding. She was much better than me and Pam when we provided you tube fodder at the Ritz a few years ago. She is Aruba for her first time, her husband and son sent her here for a few days as a Mother's Day present. She is from Brooklyn and is very nice and friendly. She already wants to come back and was asking about Surf Club. We took her over there for a happy hour drink and to see the property. It was sprinkling lightly when we headed over but by the time we were passing Moomba it really started raining. Like a hard driving, sideways rain. We were soaked to the bone, the wind was howling and the temperature dropped 10 degrees. We were huddled with our drinks under the beach bar roof with the bartenders and beach servers and our friends Steve and Abby. The rain slowed down to a drizzle and we showed Kathryn around. Of course she fell in love with the lazy river and agreed it would be a great place for her 12 year old son to visit. We got back to HI and made plans to meet up for dinner at Iguana Cantina. We had flautas, bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp and coconut shrimp. We walked in the sprinkles to Moomba for a couple and walked home in the rain. This morning it is still cloudy and everything still looks wet.
