whimsical

more photos from my last vacation...
The I ♥ ARUBA sign was on the beach across from where I was staying.  It was fun to watch people stop by, arrange themselves, and take photos.  One morning, I had a bit of fun taking photos for people.



uummm....what WERE they thinking when they named this business?  (Aruba)



love this sign!  Watch out for the frog men and women crossing the road!  (Bonaire)



Trees are growing through the roof!  (Aruba)

vacation

a few random photos from my last vacation...
Malmok Beach, Aruba.  This is near the northern part of the island, a favorite spot for kite and wind surfers.



1000 steps, Bonaire--a wonderful place to scuba or snorkel (I snorkeled.)  It not quite a 1000 steps down to the beach, more like 70.  It's coming back up with tons of gear that makes it seem like 1000!  The world that awaits below the sea is a wonder!



the beach at the bottom of 1000 steps



back to Aruba's southern end at Baby Beach, so named because the water is very calm



ahh...nothing like watching the sun sink into the water at the end of the day!  If you look closely you will see a pelican floating in the water just below and to the right of the sun.

sea


northernmost part of Aruba's wild eastern side

“My soul is full of longing
for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean
    sends a thrilling pulse through me.”

"adopted" pets

On a recent trip to Aruba, I "adopted" a few new pets!  First, there was a small herd of kitties who came to hang out on our deck and entertain.  Most were about 6 months old. 







These kitties were very sweet and friendly.  Hubby was so enthralled, he brought them tooona which they lapped up greedily.


On Eagle Beach, a little dog frolicked in the sand, running back and forth, bouncing and jumping, full of joy.


And then on Bonaire, we enjoyed the company of a mockingbird and a lizard both of whom visited our patio repeatedly.
This is a Whiptail Blue Lizard (Cnemidophorus murinus ruthveni), endemic to only Bonaire. 

It was fun to enjoy these adopted pets while missing our kitty at home.
