Off the Beach in Aruba
A few days ago I posted some pictures of what Aruba looks like when you step off the beach…
…And take a peek at some of the local establishments.
More of those “local pictures” here.
And today there’s more Off the Beach photos.
Green Hut Snack was a new-to-me find!
Didn’t go in today but I made a note of it for the future.
They’re probably serving up some great juices and smoothies…
…If I don’t want to make my own Peach Banana Colada Smoothie
And there’s the Sunny Supermarket
And the Kuku-Konuku buses. They drive around the island honking their horn, playing Jimmy Buffet style music, and drunk people are on the bus screaming.
Think of them sort of like Mardi Gras on a bus: beads, drunk people, loud music, screaming, and did I mention drunk people.
And when I say they honk their horns and play music, I mean they honk, honk, and honk some more!
Moving along to another snack shack with, you guessed it, Beer!
And last but not least, a fun pirate ship for the tourists.
Zooming right in to the left of the boat reveals this.
Are we having fun yet?
I love my lens. That’s all I can say.
1. Have you been having a good Memorial Day (if you’re celebrating it)? What have you been up to?
We hung out at the pool a bit…
And caught up on my emails and housework (yes, even here there’s housework and laundry), and we’re going to go out for a little stroll now.
But first, I’d love to munch on this. I have a craving for it!
2. Have you seen, read, or heard anything that’s made you laugh or chuckle lately?
I see all kinds of things that make me laugh:
really drunk people here are always fun to chuckle at (yes at, not with)
people who are trying to do things that clearly they shouldn’t be like running in the midday sun when it’s 90F and humid and they are used to treadmill running in their air-conditioned gym
people complaining about the “slow service” here. Yep, it’s slow. It’s Aruba. Get over it, and laugh. You’re on vacation!
Happy Memorial Day and thank you to everyone who has or is serving our country!
