    May 1995 - My First Aruba Trip PART TWO

    So I had a few more photos in my scrapbook, but pretty much more of the same.

    Divi Divi had a carnival night with buffet dinner and some costumed dancers for entertainment. I enjoyed the buffet because I love food, but remember being disappointed to find the delicious looking potatoes were actually plantains. I'll eat them, but not my fave. I had loaded a big scoop onto my plate before realizing they weren't taters. Of course I got up and danced a bit and took a couple photos with the dancers

    I had bought one of the disposable underwater cameras for the Mi Dushi snorkel trip. I don't remember exactly where we went to snorkel, but the view from the water is seen in the two shoreline pics. I'm sure that view is much different today. Henry and Carol didn't snorkel that day and my husband tried, but his facial hair wouldn't allow the mask to seal so I was on my own in the water. I had never been before and got a bit scared when I learned how fast and far the current carried me when I wasn't paying attention. But still lots of fun. I took lots of pics under water, but they are all crap since I used the cheapo camera and was too scared to dive down for close ups.

    More pics from Twinklebones. The singing & dancing servers.

    The photo of the couple is of our tablemates at the Jewel Box Review. Henry and Carol had VIP seats close to the stage so my SO and I were seated in general with this other couple. My guy is named Frank and this guy was Frank. My guy is into Fords and new Frank worked at a Ford dealer. My Frank is Sicilian, new Frank was Sicilian. Neither Frank smoked, but New Frank's wife, Ginny, smoked and so did I. Ginny and I smoked the same kind of cig. It was just so odd and fun to have all these similarities with this other couple.

    Some of my souvenirs. I bought a beautiful amethyst ring at Noble and I think I paid about $400 for the ring. About 3 years later, I snagged a prong loose and the stone went flying out, never to be seen (by me) again. I had it replaced, but it's not the same. I still have the bell and cup & saucer. I think I gave the bracelet as a Christmas gift.
