Getting Ready for Aruba

Our family is getting ready for our June visit to the Tamarijn.

There is not much planned as far as activities go this year. The most exciting thing we will be doing besides lounging beachside is taking the South Side Snorkel Lunch Tour on the Tranquilo.

We did this excursion a few years back and though we could have had better weather, it was a relaxing day of quiet sailing and fantastic snorkeling.

I wrote about our previous sail on Tranquilo here. We are again looking forward to sailing with Captain Anthony. One of our four favorite Aruba excursions. The others being, in no particular order-- the Island helicopter tour, Jolly Pirates & Kini Kini ATV tour.

Another evening we will be looking forward to is our Annivesary dinner at Passions. This will be the second year in a row we are fortunate enough to dine there. My review from last year.

I made our reservation yesterday and quickly received a confirmation from Marc, the Food & Beverage manager.

He specifically remembered our dd and her lounging on their bed on the beach.

What can I say, except that her reputation preceeds her.

Our friend Bully has also confirmed that he will pick us up at the airport. I still say that there is nothing better than arriving at our "home away from home" and finding a familiar face waiting for us outside of Aruba Customs. I have written about Bully the Taxi driver previously at The Aruban Taxi Driver and Bully Again.
