Arrived home just a little past midnight. Long travel day. We had another great trip this year. So many of our friends who have timeshares the same weeks as ours were not able to come this year due to various reasons. Not the same without them, but had a great time anyway. My husband had a great time at karaoke (I only sing when I have had a few too many LOL). Ate at a couple new restaurants and a lot of our favorites as well. Enjoyed the fireworks on the beach on the 4th of July. Didn't take but a couple of pictures this year (sorry), but, I have not yet learned how to post them here.

Weather was rainier then usual this year. Had a couple of thunderstorms. But, all in all, it is Ar*ba! Still paradise and already counting down to next year's trip.

Will try to put together a trip report soon. Still unpacking. But, as Karen said, no stress to come back to this year!!

Welcome back Debbie! Sounds like vacation was a success. Enjoy slipping into retirement mode now. And when people ask you "so what do you do all day?" (usually with a smirk on their face) I say "I do everything I want to, and nothing that I don't want to do".

Welcome home and glad you enjoyed Aruba. How can you not, right!

Enjoy the beginning of your retirement. The days of " should I do this today or tomorrow" life.
