Default Hope this works!

I've been absent in words, but present in heart. I am posting some of my "FIRST TRIP TO ARUBA" photos. I am an amateur for sure, unlike Robin and Kent--each picture is a special memory for my sister and myself. Never thought I would be sharing them. This bulletin board was "Godsend" for my "FIRST TRIP"-- so thanks everyone and pardon my absence recently. I got home and got busy with the family. Someday I will get to the "trip report"- for some reason, the thought of doing one now is a little depressing. I feel close to all of you, so I wanted to let you know I appreciate your participation on this board... [BTW, I have a new "fund" called "my next trip to Aruba" fund and I hope to surprise my husband this Christmas- don't tell him...]

Hope this works...

it worked and it is great! wow! the pic of the cruise ship is almost scary. it feels like it is going to come right out of the screen.

we promise not to tell your husband about the surprise. (but we all knew you would be back within a year, lol.)

The last picture and the picture of us in the lobby-- I am on the left in both pictures and my younger sister Kim is on the right.

Elaine-- Andre was "sort of" bar dancing in the picture-- he is such a nice guy.

Thanks for your comments everyone! I miss Aruba.

(Carrelli-Please can I go too?) We stayed at the Renaissance Ocean Suites in Oranjestad. We did go to the Private Island (I put captions at the bottom of the pictures). And as you can tell, we were at the Renaissance Marina Hotel visiting a couple spots. We ate at Matthew's and took some photos of Eagle beach one day, otherwise most of our time was spent in Oranjestad at the Ocean Suites property. (took one tour of the Island).

Sherry-- those smiles never left our face until we were departing...

Robin-- I thought you would be homesick seeing some of our pictures.

Everyone-- it would be so fun to be there with other BB friends...

I know the feeling--I smiled the whole time I was there ... until it was time to leave.
