Sunday in Aruba: Tick Tock on the Clock

It is a beautiful day in Aruba:

i think i've run out of descriptives for the blue sky/palm tree/resort view!

There is no BINGO on Sunday.

It must have rained heavily overnight, though:

drainage systems are not the most efficient...because there usually is not a need!

I didn’t hear a thing – been sleeping like a (good) baby all week.

I almost thought I was going to have to report that it was an overcast day in Aruba – the sun did not really come out til about 9:30 a.m:

sky starting to clear...

Just enough time for some knitting, then one last beach stroll, this morning…

the beach is pretty quiet on sundays as it's the busiest travel day of the week

And now…

The Final Tanning Report!!

B-4…(just a little BINGO joke, haha!)

monday march 7...

And today…

ta da!

Amy, Hannah and I are sharing a taxi back to the airport, leaving about 2 p.m. So I’m back to hanging out in the lobby, passing time with my computer, saying good-byes, and knitting. (I was going to take my knitting on the plane since the trip would give me 5 solid hours of needletime, but have decided not to; even though knitting IS once again allowed during air travel, I don’t want to chance the vagaries of Aruban, American, and Air Canada security. Better safe than sorry!).

little buddy says "don't go home!"

But homeward bound, we must be.

thanks for a great week, playa linda!

      Thanks, zo!
      Had an uneventful flight home which is always a nice thing…back to the real world today!! *Sigh!*

    Travel safely! I guess you’re probably in the air on your way back to the cold by now… but at least you have lots of wonderful pictures and memories to look back on 🙂

      Thanks, lisa! We’re just taxi-ing into a gate back in good ol’ TO…apparently it’s zero degrees out-i think I’m in for a rude awakening!! But yes, great photos and good times to remember!

    Hi Cathy — looks like such a fun holiday! Did you do any beach running this week? Or was it a week of running rest — looks like you did some water aerobics and visited the gym. I am out of touch with how much running you do a week now, so fill me in!
    You have made Aruba seem so attractive. I want to go!
