Adventures in a Hotel

July 10, 2010

We did some exploring late one night at the Renaissance Curaçao.

Duck did some window shopping.

Visited the business center.

Watched some world cup in the coffee shop.

Checked out the car rental prices.

Stopped by the pool to get a beach towel.

Rode the elevator back to our room.

Took a bath.

Put on a bathrobe and slippers.

Lastly Duck brushed his teeth and went to bed.

Snorkeling and Off-Roading in Aruba

July 5, 2010

We had alittle over 24 hours in Aruba. Our plan was to relax and enjoy the beach with the world’s softest sand.

As you have probably figured out by now we don’t sit still very well so after an hour we decided to snorkel out to a small reef in front of our hotel.

Seeing this starfish made the very, very long swim worth it.

After snorkeling we got some pina coladas and watched the sunset.

We found a band playing at the pier a few hotels down so we had dinner, drinks and actually did relax for a bit.

The next morning we got up early to take a jeep tour.

We went to the National Park.

And then went off roading.

Stopped at a Natural Pool to snorkel.

Then the Donkey Sanctuary.

And last stop was the Natural Bridge. (That’s Danny jumping up on top)

Aruba was nice but I’m glad we spent most of our trip in Curaçao. Next we need to check out Bonaire to see which of the ABC Islands we like the best.
