    Lighthouse

    The lighthouse looks so nice. Its freshly painted and there is a blue cap on it. We were in the water at Arashi and it looks so majestic from the water. That would make a great photo to frame without the restaurant, lol.

    Oh, get this. The other night at the Hyatt some lady playing the slot machine next to me won $37,800. Yes, you read that correctly. She was a local. It was one of the Chinese slot machines. And it was a penny machine. Anyway, Aruba is still wonderful, went to Pizza n More last night. Its weird though, not that crowded on the island. I know it's the low season but we aren't the only ones who noticed, restaurants not crowded at all.

    Ok, well back to my morning coffee.

    Sorry Jacki, we don't have smartphones to bring to the beach but it really is beautiful, especially from the water. They did a great job restoring it

    Andrea, at first I thought it was $3780 but when I saw the security guards there and looked again, it read $37,800. They had to do the video to make sure it was legit. Oh, and the night before another woman at the Hyatt won $8,800. Butt the woman who won the 37,800 was betting the max which was $8.80 a shot. I would have a nervous breakdown betting that much on a slot. Roulette is different but that much goes fast when you are hitting the respin button. Hey, good for her. She was an older woman with a walker. She probably could use. Merry Christmas to her. And one of the roulette dealers (my favorite sweetheart there), told me she is a sweet woman.
