Well, I am definitely not good at figuring this out. I went to the calendar and I saw
some names on the July month. Tried to include mine but couldn't figure it out. I saw
Scuba Daddy and Tanya and others.
Anyways, I was trying to see if there are any special events happening from Sunday 24th of July to the 31st. Also... Mondays is usally a quite night... at least in Cda.
What would be a happening place on Mondays in Aruba?

13 days and not even thinking about packing. I guess when you've been going for 8 years and you live in Florida you have the stuff in your closet. Went to the packing website. I NEVER bring sundresses or long slacks and DH MAY bring long slacks, but probably not. Capris and shorts for me and shorts and golf shirt for him. You can sit outside at LeDome in shorts and we don't do Chez Mathilde after a bad experience so..... Linda

jckrbtac, how long does it take you to fly to Aruba?
Hate to tell everyone this, but it was 70 degrees here today and tommorrow, when Im playing golf, it will be 75.
We are having a very unusual winter here.

Also, what dates will you be there and where are you staying. We will be there 04/01 to 04/12 and 2 other couples on the board will be also. Maybe more.

Well Aruba Bob- We leave Alaska at 9:20pm 3-31 and arrive in Aruba at 8:30pm on 4-1 so with the 5 hour time change I am just under 20 hours of travel time.

I know it is a long way to go but the last time I went to St. Maarten in 2000 it was so worth the flight. My sister and her husband are meeting us there for her 40th birthday. They live in California and have almost as long of a trip.

We are staying for two weeks and leave the 15th of April. Staying in Renaissance Beach Resort the first week and La Caban Villa's the second week.

Aruba here we come!!!!!!!!
44 more wake ups !!!

oh by the way JCKRBTAK---Unlike the drinking water in "Cancun", which I think many people from the west coast USED to go...the drinking water Aruba is better than bottle water...So if you go to the supermarket in Aruba, don't waste your money on cases of Water...just buy a couple of btls and re-fill from the tap...save your money for the important things like the casino's and tropical drinks!!!!!!!
