Passing Our Days in Aruba

Friday we we on the beach by about 4 pm. Hit the pool before coming back to the room for showers before heading to Gasparito's for dinner.

Elvina was so surprised, but of course happy about C. She had an inkling something was up since we were not there last year. I was asleep by 9:30 pm. C. was also tired and on overload. When the island first appeared from the plane and she saw the pretty blue water she was just speechless. She is still overwhelmed. But everyday she gets a little better.

Yesterday, Saturday was just a day on the beach. In the afternoon dh and C. went on a tube ride. Those oversized tubes pulled by the power boats....C. putted around in the ocean with the mask and snorkel. She has been doing really well with her swimming and is not complaining as much about the salt water as she has in the past. As hard as I tried, she still got sunburned on her back yesterday. She was flagged from going in the water today 11 am - 2 pm and the rest of the time she had to wear one of dh's t-shirts, which on her is like a long sleeved long dress. Tomorrow we are renting a 4 x 4 to ride around the island. Tuesday we are going on a snorkel sail aboard the Tranquilo with 2 stops and lunch.
