We got back from Aruba last night. Eight days of sunshine , beach, pool , food and the drink of the day at Occidental's Allegro Aruba. Never had such a relaxing vacation. We did nothing . (ok, one snorkel trip and one shopping trip).
Biggest decision of the day was a Balashi beer from the beach bar or a drink of the day from the pool bar. Good food , nice facilities . The hotel could use a little refurbishing but nothing that detracted from an excellent time.
We shopped one day in Orangestad (two ships in town, Destiny and a Princess ship, couldn't see the name from the street). Gram got her pearl earings and the watch she was looking for and I got my new digital camera for Alaska and the west coast in September.
Things I can recommend. The Allegro Resort and Casino , Red Sail Sports , the Aruban bus system ,Boolchands for electronics, Pearls and Gems for pearls ,
Boolchands for watches. Best store in Aruba, the Juggling Fish (on the beach side just north of the Holiday Inn).
Am I too believe that, you are looking for sympathy? Boohoo my fat big toe…
Glad you had a great time. Now, get back to reality and be miserable like the rest of us.lol
Welcome back, we missed you.
