Back from Aruba and We have a Winn-ah!

For some odd reason I started taking pics of my "happy feet" when I am on vacation. I started this last year and love to see where I am at that moment when it hits me, I am so relaxed and happy!


~ View from our private Cabana!!! We felt sooo spoiled~

So, Mikey and I had a ball as you would imagine. Aruba is a very small island (6 miles wide x 19 miles long) and not much to do for more than a week. The best part is the weather as it is always approx. 85 degrees with a constant breeze from the trade winds. The water is thee most amazing aqua blue I have seen in many years, if ever (pics do not do it justice). We took an 8 hour day tour where we spent the first half of the day driving Land Rover Jeeps all over the island to see some amazing sights.

The 2nd half of the day was spent on Depalm Island which is a private island where you snorkel with HUGE Blue Parrot fish that surround you 30+ at a time! They have big white bugs bunny teeth! Wish you could see in pic! Some are the size of a standard size bed pillow!!! eek!


~Here are a few pics of our week away, Thank you Lord for our blessings~

~Natural bridges and coves are cut away into Coral rocks from the the rough waves created by the trade winds on the West side of the island~
