Smile Renaissance Marina and other pics

I haven't gotten around to posting anymore of our trip report but I did manage to get some pictures put online. So if anyone is interested they are at www.jnlinaruba2005.myphotoalbum.com Hope you enjoy them, lots of pics of Ren private island and our jeep tour. I found when we got home I didn't have a single picture of the family side of the island. Lots of topless women on the adult side, hubby practically ran there each day, LOL! Hope to finish trip report soon.

Great pics! It's funny looking at other peoples photos of things
you too have seen. Barbie and I love iguana joes! We have a pic
down on the street with the sign also. Aruba is soooooooooo
great. It's funny you can sit beside someone down there,
strike up a conversation with a total stranger just like they
were an old freind. looks like you folks had a great time.
Thank you for sharing your vacation.

Lisa,
Thanks for sharing, your pictures are great. After seeing them, I'm packing today....even though I'm not leaving for 16 more days!
The pic of the ladies room with the sign about not washing feet in the basin brought back memories. I saw the sign and was wetting a paper towel just to wipe the sand off and a worker came running in to stop me. I wasn't even attempting to put my foot in the basin! She was watching us from the outside of the ladies room through the mirror. Well it was funny at the time!
Thanks again for the great pics!!

Lisa...what great pics...I'm actually going to look at them again after typing this. I love looking at other peoples pictures and you can definately see the fun in all of yours. I actually enjoyed them more than lots of others that people post. And not to mention what a great photographer you are...something I admire in a person because I can't take a picture to save my life!

Karin...14 days and a wake up for me!!! Will you be at the Amsterdam Manor on Monday the 16th? I'm going to try my best...considering i'm right next door at LaCabana I really have no excuse (unless we do a tour or something, but hubby says he wants to do NOTHING (OK by me))!!!

Thanks Elisabeth, I love taking pictures. I always take to many. I had over 400 from this trip!!!! Thanks God for digital cameras, it would have cost me an arm and 2 legs to have regular film developed. We also have pictures from our underwater camera that I forgot to have put on disk. After I have it done I will post those also.
Have a wonderful time on your vacation, I am already ready to go back. We just loved it there.

Karin - I thought that sign was so funny and when I went back in to take the picture she looked at me like I was crazy, at least she didn't charge me again, LOL. Have a great time!!!!!!!

Lisa

Millertime,
I wonder if we can find a person who doesn't have a picture beside the Iguana Joe's sign, LOL! It's like the Cheers sign in Boston, if you don't live there, when you go to visit you have to get a picture at Cheers, right?

Lisa

We'll be at the Marriott Ocean Club. Maybe we will venture over. I'd love to meet some people from the board. It sounds like your husband and mine have the same plans......NONE!!!

Lisa, thanks for sharing your pics. They are sure bring back memories of the many times we've gone there. You managed to capture the magic of Aruba and all the fun of the island. Your pics of Iguana Joes is a classic, a place I enjoy. Thanks again and want to pack and go back right now! Marie

Great pics. They look like ours from last summer. After our week at the Divi, we will be going back to the Ren for three nights this year. Wish we could stay longer!

Thanks,
Walt

I'm glad you all enjoyed our pictures. We, of course, have not been able to stop talking about our trip and have convinced some of our friends that Aruba is the place to be. We are now planning a trip with 3
or 4 other couples for next spring. Wish it could be sooner but I'm not complaining, at least I get to go back!

Lisa
