Finally got around to the trip report.

Flew American both ways, paid for the main cabin extra which was nice as we got a row to ourselves as no one took the middle seat. All flights good, slight delay leaving CLT due to a mechanical issue but it was resolved quickly & we were on our way.
Arrived in Aruba & there were no other flights so went through immigration quickly. Got to baggage pick up & waited 5mins for luggage, out to the taxi & off to The Tam :D

Requested a room in the 2100 building that we usually get, got it again this time. Bit further away from the main part of the hotel so quieter which we like.
Every day was get up, secure a hut right outside our room, breakfast, out to the beach for the day. Did walk the beach a couple time up to the Divi. Took our floats out into the water at one end of the beach & floated down to the other.

Monday was the Swamp Monkey beach party at Eagle Beach, so much fun to meet up with friends old & new.

The weather was great the entire time, it rained overnight a couple times but by the time breakfast was done & we were ready to head to the beach it was dry.

Ate at the Divi buffet most nights, did try out Pure Lime one night, not impressed won't bother to go there again.
Of course had to do Red Parrot & see our favorite waiter Yaldo, he is always so fun & upbeat. Plus keep the drinks coming :lol:

We left for the airport in plenty of time, the person at the check-in counter said to go through security now as it was busy, there was hardly any lines! Probably the quietest I've seen it for a long time. Mental note fly home during the week not weekends when it's nut :shock:

Flight to Miami was good, flight home good. Got to our car at the airport & the battery was dead :( called the airport parking & they sent a truck right over to give us a jumpstart & we were on our way home.

All in all another great trip, looking forward to our next trip back to the Tam next year :D
