Aruba State of Mind

Saturday, February 13, 2012:  Today was a lazy day with no specific plans in Aruba.  Lots of pool time followed by lots of beach time.
Downtown Oranjestad.

We saw this guy on our way to the beach.  He was skittering across a parking lot.
Note the beer cap by his tale ruining the "natural" effect of the shot.

The beaches rock in Aruba.  It's their # 1 draw and for good reason.
They are simply spectacular with soft white sand and beautiful water.
Our only real "bust" of the trip was waiting 3 hours or so downtown
in the capital city of Oranjestad for the Carnaval Parade to pass.
Evidently "island time" applies to parades as well because we
never saw it except on a TV broadcast in one of the casinos.
