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.

Alphabe-Thursday, hosted by Ms Jenny is so much fun!  This week our assignment is letter "V."  Come see others' submissions HERE and join in the fun!
