Two weeks in beautiful Aruba was heavenly but like all good things, it came to an end. Here are several photos of this lovely little island for you to enjoy.
The food was delicious and included several different kinds of fish – grouper, red snapper (my favorite), mahi mahi, Chilean sea bass, barracuda, wahoo, yellow snapper, and all kinds of shellfish, and lovely steaks (Argentinian and New York beef) and plenty of Italian food!

Lovely artistic shell creations by Ara aka the shell lady – this incredible woman in her seventies still walks all the way down the beach for 5-6 miles each day to collect shells that she shares with everyone on the beach.

It was a wonderful vacation as you can see from the photos. Thank you for stopping by!
Happy to be back but I do miss the warmer weather there and the glorious water that feels like you are sitting in a warm Jacuzzi. Ahhh! We spent hours in the water soaking our tired old bones and talking to our new and old friends. Oh well, have to wait until next year to do it again.
Blessings & hugs!
