Spent two beautiful weeks at Playa Linda. Our 30th year coming to Aruba! The weather was beautiful, although it was a bit windier than normal, with some strong gusts. Some rain overnight, but otherwise always sunny.

Upon arrival, went to Duty Free shop for vodka. All they had was some Aruban brand I never heard of, for about $36/bottle. We passed and headed out for a cab.

The island was more green than usual, due to a rainy November/December.

Basically spent the day at the beach and the evenings eating dinner.

We took the Monforte afternoon cruise, 10 AM - 3 PM ( from Pelican pier and had a fantastic time. The crew greets you with a glass of champagne with watermelon puree! The serve top shelf liquors and a delicious lunch (chicken, beef and fish) cooked on-board. The ship stops at the Spanish Lagoon, past the airport for snorkeling and swimming. Crew members are in the water with you to help and guide you. After snorkeling, they break out the rope swing, then head back in. They limit the number of passengers to 34, so you never feel crowded. The crew is very attentive and professional. I highly recommend it.

We also rented UTV's from Arubiana from 10 AM - 6 PM and toured the island on our own. The machines were clean and well maintained. We had a blast! Went from lighthouse to Natural Bridge, then off to Charlies in San Nicolas and a stop at Baby Beach for a swim.

Other than that, it was the typical Aruba trip, wake up, hit the beach, eat lunch, back to the beach, happy hour, watch the sunset, dinner and bed.

Aruba, One Happy Island!
