More Views of Aruba!

In case you are just tuning in – we are in Aruba for three weeks. I can’t get enough of this beautiful place. We have been coming for nineteen years together but I first visited Aruba in 1986. It has developed and changed over the years but it is still my favorite place to vacation and really relax! Of course, here I am each night blogging, reading emails and writing chapters of my new novel. But all day long I truly relax and read from my TBR list and spend hours in the ocean – 75-80 degrees. It’s like a sauna but more refreshing! Ahh!

More beautiful views of Aruba!

I took some views and experimented with lighting on my Ipad. It made for some interesting shots.

Sunsets that I cannot take enough photos of!

Can you see the sailboat in the photo above. I timed it just right to fall into the line of the setting sun. So beautiful!

Next week we will be on the 9th floor on the opposite side of the building and will have photos of the pools but no sunsets. I am getting my fill of sunsets this week! Enjoy!

Next week look for views of the pools with changing colors!

Views from our balcony on the 8th floor!

We eat lunch out on our balcony some days if it is not too hot. The breezes are cooling and comfortable.

Hope you enjoyed my photos. Thank you for stopping by!
