    Aruba's Breeze/Wind

    We have come to appreciate (and I hope never take for granted) the wonderful breezes of Aruba.
    My guess is probably 90% every day in the year Aruba is blessed with amazing wind.
    Those other 10%.......it is hot.

    Ex: We just spent 2 weeks in Aruba and most days there was a nice breeze.
    We spent hours in the pools, in the ocean, on the beach or pool deck too.

    Today at our home's community pool I swam for 90 min...got out and sat in the sun with a book.
    I lasted 10 minutes. It was HOT, no breeze. I went home.

    I miss the breeze. I miss Aruba.

    I totally agree! Without the breeze, I need to be up to my neck in water (ideally with my kindle in its waterproof case in one hand and a rum drink in the other)

    Did you say you have a waterproof case for your kindle? where did you get that. Didn't know it existed.

    It is this ziplock style from Amazon:
    https://www.amazon.com/WALNEW-Univer...tronics&sr=1-4

    I have not finished unpacking yet, and I went down to look for it, so I could give you the exact brand... but it is eluding me
    I hope I did not leave it at La Cabana... I suppose tonight will be the night I finish unpacking!
