Aruba

We went to Aruba in February for seven nights to celebrate our 24th anniversary.  Just in time to escape the Texas winter (yes, it was worse this year)




We had a good flight and was through security at the airport in Aruba in record time.   The car rental (Budget) seemed a little confused but we finally were in the car after about 30 minutes.

We stayed  






We drove most of the island the first full day there. 



I think this is right before we got stuck in a sand dune..  Thank God two locals were near to push us out :)





Shopping downtown 










We did a lot of snorkeling on this trip.  Great spot close to the hotel Boca Catalina Beach 














Did a little hiking




We went to Renaissance Island and had a wonderful day of relaxing and snorkeling.  You just go to the front desk of Renaissance Aruba to get a day pass.  $100.00 per person.. It includes lunch and a drink and transportation back and forth.  If you are staying at the hotel it's free
Oh.. and they have Flamingos!!!!!!!!!!!!










Out and about










Great Sunsets




Happy Anniversary to US!!!
