I Love Aruba Re: Let's do a countdown

Doreen...
You must be crazed about now..packing..unpacking..putting it back again...Less is More I have fownd. Have a great time and come back on "board" to tell us all about your adventures......5 weeks and 2 days for Us. Where are you staying?..We have a time share at LaCabana BRC..11th yr and counting.
Can hardly wait to go back to the heat and that fabulous warm ocean water so clear and azure blue. That warm "yet" refreshing breeze brushing across my face. The smell of all those fantastic foods drifting through the soft wind as you lounge on the white sands under the grass huts....sipping the tropical drink of the day. Just listening to the laughter around you as folks from around the planet "enjoy" the paradise that you had found here too. The dancing in the evening that is found all around the island that speaks no language ..yet is all the same..and all join in. The Good Morning, good afternoon and good evening that is heard from the friendly island folk every where you go .. "enjoy your stay on our Island "We welcome you to experience us the families of Aruba".. This is all just heaven and is what makes us keep going back. Thank you Aruba
5 wks 2 days....Deb in Ma.

Wow, I didn't realize you were going again so soon. Way to go! Sounds like you might be there for my birthday 6/9, make sure to tip a balashi for me to celebrate! Charlie take good care of the island and take lots more pictures, I won't be back again until at least 2008

You got it, mi amigu! That's a promise!

I'm trying to get my parents to join me. They're psyched but I can't seem to get them motivated to get their passports. (I've been nagging them since they came back to Alabama in October to get it done.) I hope by making reservations for myself, they'll get on the stick.

Charlie, Kevin,
I'll be there in 67 days, long time since 10/05. Taking our best friends to celebrate their 25th. Arrive on your b-day Kevin, I'll toast my first cold one to you and our friends. Charie, we'll be staying at the Surf Club, where you staying? Can't wait to get back to paradice. The only must do I always have on my list is to go fishing, everything else is just a bonus.

Thanks for the warm thoughts. But at this point I have been backed for a week now. Just cleaned my diving mask last night. My new underwater camera was delivered yesterday----Olympus 720 hope it works!
This is the first time we're taking our older kids(24, 18 and 16)
Staying at ABC one week and Playa Linda at the other. We're also staying at LaCabana Beach 1 night. Cannot wait. I'm getting very cranky. Jealous people are warning me of a big snow storm to hit New York Sat. I've seen no reports only rain. I willo report when I get back.

I'm staying at the Ren. Marina. That's where I stayed last October and I loved it. As the day draws closer, let's see about meeting for a drink and/or a meal while we're there.

Hi Dana, welcome to the BB. I agree with you, putting it in single digits makes it seem/sound like less. At least you have it on the horizon, I love looking forward to trips almost as much as taking them!

Charlie, I know one thing for sure, we plan on having dinner at the Paddock on Wed night for the all you can eat (or is it eat it all) ribs. Might be able to cross paths then.

I don't know how many days are left (how ever many there are between now and June 6th) but I just booked my parents and my brother (who would be tomrat if he were to register here, I'm sure) for the same dates. Now I'm trying to get my sister to come, too.

I'm am totally psyched about the idea of the whole family coming back to Aruba!

Sister's not the problem (that's peggyrat to you), it's getting brother-in-law with the program that might be the sticking point.

That's a no brainer to me. He doesn't want to go ~ she does? He stays home, she travels!

Send her here Charlie, there are a few of us who will encourage her to do her own thing!!

Ok, let me try that again. I'm with Elaine, your sister (peggyrat) needs to come onboard this board and us "gals" will encourage her to go, with or without the hubby, I mean, life is just too darn short.

Gina, Elaine, you are speaking my language. By the way, I wasn't just being cute with the name "peggyrat." She is a registered member of this board and might actually be reading here.

So, sis, assuming you see this, if Barry doesn't want to go, he can stay home and feed the cats.

I can't believe it is here already! Sorry I am still working on that trip report! It is becoming too long.

I can tell you LaCabana was wonderful, the pool and beach are great. Try the Islander Grill outside (but screened in) for casual food - it was better than ever! PM me if you have any other questions!

Runners from all over the world. Floods along the coast and poweroutages and some evacuations near the shore...yet ,they are Running from Hopington to Boston. The Boston Red Sox are supposed to play at Fenway too..haven't heard of a CXL yet. Think the game is at noon. YIKES !!! Yesterday we had the bigest snowflakes I ever saw in my life...freaky. Got some great pictures of it comimg down on my bloomed Daffodils... Oh! where is our spring.

I am so jealous...please post a report of your adventures and pic.. .Helps with that anticipation of getting there. It has stopped pouring to a drizzle here and wind has died down a bit...the runners need a break. Hope it stays that way. There is a condo complex down the street that is flooded to the doors..stream and small river back up over to the main road...mess . Don't know how the coast is doing. The news is all about that awful shooting in Va. Tec School OMG 22 killed it says. Won't know how the marathon is or our coastal flooding for a while I'm sure. Those poor students/ parents..what is wrong with people doing these things.

yes, i've been watching this terrible news too. rain and wind will go away. those families of the dead or injured will never be the same. they now say it was a domestic thing. guy looking for his girlfriend. that was the last info on cnn. i just figure if you want to kill yourself, do it first, then go out and kill others.

The news is all about that awful shooting in Va. Tec School OMG 22 killed it says. Won't know how the marathon is or our coastal flooding for a while I'm sure. Those poor students/ parents..what is wrong with people doing these things.

hey everyone...do you think it is time to start 'let's do a countdown part 2?' hard to go back to check on future travelers with 3000 posts in the thread.

anyone agree? how about when we reach 3100 we can create a new one?

Sherry ,
You go girl..Start it...takes way to long to boot up..on my computer anyway...Lets keep it going.

A domestic thing you say...how sick is that..others have to pay for a relationship gone bad. How sad to waste the lives and futures of others because you don't get what you want. My prayers go out to all that have lost someone . Sure is a real rainy day Huh !! Count our blessings.

the death toll is now 31 according to cnn. it is the worst mass shooting in the united states. not exactly a record that we wanted to see broken.

this is a sad day and they certainly do need our prayers, deb.

i think i am going to close this thread with this post since it has now turned into a sad thread. i will start the new one in a few moments.

if anyone wants to talk about this tragedy, would one of you start a thread in our yada yada section?
