Aruba Farewell

Thursday, February 12, 2011:  On our last day in Aruba, we took an early morning car-tour
around some of the island.
California Lighthouse on the NW tip of the island as seen through ancient, land-locked coral.

A windswept Divi-divi tree on the beach.
Cactus on the beach?  Well, that's different, but that's Aruba.

Mt. Jamanota, only 620 ft. above flat Aruba and covered with cacti.

South America is only 17 miles south of Aruba, but it's still considered in the Caribbean.
We flew back into Atlanta and landed around 8 PM (EST).  After our farewells at the airport, we hopped back in the car with Danny and Brenda for the drive back to Nashville.  We made a quick stop in downtown Atlanta at the famous Varsity Drive-In for some junk food to tide us over on the trip home.  We got home about midnight.  What a great trip!
