    Staying Cool and Hydrated in Aruba

    Staying cool and hydrated is important wherever you are........in Aruba or in the areas not in Aruba that are under a huge heat warning.

    In Aruba, the Tradewinds make it wonderfully comfortable.
    A cold beverage in hand is always good too.
    Sitting or floating or swimming in the ocean is a perfect option for heat relief.

    Miserably hot here in SE Virginia. Temp is only 92, but heat index is 107. Did you know the heat index is measured in the shade? In the sun it can be up tp 25 degrees hotter. Our pool temp is 85.

    may we use your pool? 85 sounds deeeeelightful.
    our pool temp is 92......it makes for a very very slow water exercise classes and lap swimming is impossible.

    I equate it to swimming in sweat...

    Ewww swimming in sweat! I have no idea what my pool temp is. Guess we should measure it? It felt good today when my car was reading 101!

    Staying hydrated is key - and remember all the pups too - they need lots of fresh water and very short walks in this heat.

    Today, the heat index was 94 degrees here in Aruba. Today in Long Branch, NJ where we would have been if not here in Aruba the heat index was 111 degrees! Who would have thought going to Aruba in July to get away from the heat would have been an idea! LOL. Keep cool all in the Northeast US.

    We have a 64oz generic jug, similar to the yeti brand but not as expensive. We fill it with water every morning and make ourselves finish it. It definitely helps to keep it ice cold. For Aruba we also pack a can of.powder gatorade mix and use the pitcher in our timeshare to make Gatorade to drink in the room. Last year we brought pedialyte freezer pops in our luggage and stuck them in the freezer when we arrived. It's a nice cool down treat in the afternoon.
    A couple years ago, Jon got severely dehydrated, so now I'm a crazy person about it.

    The Ritz provided cold towels and ice-pops when we stayed there. They were very much welcomed.
