6 days from now at this exact moment we should be back at ocean 105 after our first food shopping and done our unpacking (if they don't lose the luggage, lol). to us, that marks the beginning of the vacation.

Yes my dear..but the clouds came in at the end and coved up the sun.

but it's the thought that counts....I toasted Tico and his Mrs. to.

Sherry...we got all the towels we need...after I mentioned...One towel per person for 3 days...wasn't going to cut......She was sweet about it.

You're staying at the same place as Big Papa, right? Are you staying there both weeks and have you stayed there before? Just curious. I'm sure you won't have any problems finding places to drink, but when we were there we always walked down to the Playa Linda and had drinks at both Sassy's and Claudia's beach bars. That's not the real name,but rather the names of the bartenders.

yes, we are staying at the same place as big papa and we will be there both weeks. we have actually never seen the place inside but so far the news is good from bp. he actually rented there at my suggestion. it just looks lovely from the pictures. i guess i will find out in 5 days and a few hours, lol.

we prefer to be in the quiet sections of aruba. we drink at places like costa linda or aruba phoenix. we want places we can find a parking space and since we will not be within walking distance of the resorts we will take our choices among the places we love the most. then again, we can have beer and wine right on the beach outside of our little apartment.

Smile Re: let's do a countdown part 2

One week from right now!!! Our plane leaves at 1:00pm on the 23rd! Can't believe it's time to go - WOO HOO!!! Thanks to all of you who helped us with great advise and fantastic ideas. This is what we planned for our week:


FRI - Land and go to resort (Ren), grab drink and chill
SAT- Breakfast @ Waterfront Crabhouse, Groceries @ Ling & Sons
- Private Island
- kUKOO kANUKU 5pm pickup
SUN- RECOUPERATE Pool/Private Island
- Pool/Private Island
- Pool/Private Island - Music Festival
MON- ABC 4X4 Excursion - FULL DAY
- Texas De Brazil, drinking/exploring
TUE- Explore Island beaches/snorkeling
- Explore Island/Private Island
- Explore Island/Private Island
WED- Explore Island/Private Island
- Explore Island/Private Island
- Flying Fishbone
THU- Chill//Private Island
- Chill/shop
- chill/Pool
FRI- Return car & go home :-(

Really only a couple of planned days and then just exploring at our leisure or hanging out at the private island at our resort. We'll probably go to MJ's for dinner at some point and of course hit all the bars and clubs within walking distance to the Ren! Can't wait!!!

if you are bored on monday around 5pm stop at amsterdam manor's beach bar. there will be a few of us there.

sounds like a great way to spend a week. my list looks something like yours except for the private island.

Sherry, 18 hours and 22 minutes... just enough time to pack the hang-over preventer/cure, kick back, and bask in the glory of coming sun and fun.

Elaine....why do I have to start?? (said in the whiny voice). After all, you are the poet and scholar here. I will put my thinking cap on and see what I can come up with. As far as rules my queen....I don't remember there being any. And Elaine, I talk to myself all the time... and answer myself too....( prefer my answers to someone else's ....I tell myself what I want to hear) .

I just spoke to the Cat as she frantically finishes her packing. Yes she'll be away, but the and the KY man will be here making sure that Elaine behaves herself. Yeah, KY and a sheep is a great recipe for puritan behavior...

Ruba and Elaine you're not alone - I have meaningful conversations with myself, including busting out loud in laughter at my own idiotic comments or actions.

Somehow that doesn't sound as comforting to you as I meant for it to be...

Oh Kingpin, and I thought we had a long wait -we are down to 199 days, but hey, at least now we have broken the 200 mark. Of course when you start planning the trip the day after you return it does tend to be a longgggggggg time to wait.

About 110 days until September 13th.
We'll celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and my 63rd birthday.
We've been going every year since 1988...when we were on our honeymoon.
We purchased a timeshare at that time and added weeks...so we'll be there for 3 weeks this year.
Blame it on my wife...she said she wouldn't divorce me if I took her to Aruba for our anniversary. We're oldies, but still looking forward to another vacation in Aruba.

We planned and booked it even before we went the last time in March of this year , but the waiting is worth it all !!

Less than 2 months to go - July 19-26. Didn't go at all last year because we went to Italy. Only so much $$ and vacation time.

So, how is everybody? I haven't been on here in a long time. I see a lot of familiar names.

A big hello to Queen Sherry!

Hey ScubaDad-welcome back. We missed you. Yup noticed you haven't posted in awhile, thought you got lost in Italy.
Good to hear that you are about to spend some $$$ in Aruba this year.
Enjoy.

Call off the search party! All is well. We are BACK!!! We really, really enjoyed our two weeks in Italy (Rome, Florence, and Venice), but were missing Aruba at the same time. That was the first time in 8 years that we hadn't gone, so we (the entire family) is looking forward to going back to our second home - the island paradise called Aruba.

We use Aruba as a family and friends reunion when we go, which really makes it special for us. About 20 of us getting together this year, some of who (or is it whom? never was able to get that right in school) we haven't seen since the last time we were there.

Can't wait!

Oh WOW, I feel your excitement. Know how it is, meeting up again with all those Aruba friends. We so look forward to our annual Dec. trip. This is our time to "catch up" with all the friends we have met there.

Really? That was just a guess. We have a very early flight out of Boston so I was just assuming. Shame on me. I'll just have to look forward to the drink cart. They still do that, right?
