The last port to visit on this fantastic cruise was Aruba. We have visited several Caribbean Islands in the past, but Aruba has just become our favorite. With white sand beaches, beautiful blue water, cool breezes, and gorgeous sky, what more can you ask for? We’d love to return to one of the lovely resorts on the beach.
Our stop here was another short one, a mere 6 hours. We headed straight for Mumba Beach and found a spot that offered an umbrella and chairs, for a price, but it was worth it. There were clean rest rooms, fresh water showers, a bar and food if we wanted it.
We had a great day sunning and swimming in the warm waters then headed back to the ship.
We had our best dinner crowd of the cruise, tonight. Small world, all but one of the ten people seated at our table was from California. Then after the first round of introductions I found out one of the 4 retired teachers sitting at our table taught in the Garden Grove school district where our kids started elementary school, and they knew Brent’s first/fifth grade teacher (she was our favorite, Mrs. Zubrod)!
The other couple was from Marina del Rey and he was an entertainment lawyer. Debi and Greg had mutual friends with them. It’s such a small world! It was a really nice evening with easy conversation.
The next two days are at sea and then we will fly home on Wednesday. The time has gone by so fast and now we have to prepare to get back to real life.
The next time I post will be the final thoughts on our trip after we get home. I look forward to starting a new quilt when I get home.
