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)



Banana Bus, Aruba  See the frogs on the hood?

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.
