I Love Aruba!

Another one of our favorites ports is Aruba


A trip to a lighthouse, an aloe plant, and the Archeological & History Museum.
The income levels are higher in Aruba than the surrounding Caribbean islands so it is a very attractive place to live. There are also many areas for tourists, lots of shopping and culture. 

Here's our day in pictures

A lesson on the history of Aruba. Photos below highlighting the slave trade on the island

Very windy on Aruba, so I'm sporting my new hat with chin strap that I bought on Barbados.
