This year as usual we are in our favorite spot for vacation – Aruba. It just happens to be Halloween when we are here. I haven’t noticed as many Halloween decorations as usual. I have posted several of the decorations from Aruba in the past here.
I spend much more time capturing sunsets, palm trees and the beautiful water. I hope you enjoy my photos below. We have been coming to Aruba for 23 years now. We have made friends here that come from different parts of the USA and only see them when we come back each year to this lovely island. It really is One Happy Island.
This is one place that we taken plenty of selfies with the gorgeous background. I am always pulling my husband out on the deck to snap another one for my blog.
The Aruban people are friendly, accommodating and always smiling and welcoming to everyone who come to their island. Why not? We spend plenty of money, keep their island solvent and help the tourist trade stay strong while we have fun in the sun and surf and eat our hearts out. The food is wonderful – plenty of delicious fish dishes, steaks (NY), Italian, Chinese and even Indian food. I have never tried the Indian food but have had all the others. There are so many restaurants to choose from that you could go to a different restaurant for 21 days as we did one year.
Sunsets are fabulous and continually changing as you can see above. The ones above were taken while we were eating at a restaurant that had a perfect view to watch the sunset.
Some of the earlier sunsets (beginning of photo gallery) were taken from a room we have in a tower. I snap photos every night for a week. Can’t get enough of the sunsets! Some of the beach shots are from our beach on Palm Beach. The selfies are on our deck with a beautiful view of the water.
These are only a small sampling of the total number of photos I will take. I promise to share more in another post. Below are some pics of the food I consumed! I sometimes dig in too fast and forget to capture a photos of my meal. Sorry! I may have to go on a diet. We do walk miles a day and swim and exercise in the water for hours at a time. We soak up as much of the sun and surf that we can each year until we can return again. Sigh!
Everywhere we go to eat I order red Sangria. It is so good down here in a few restaurants.The one above is my favorite for Sangria. It’s called, Fishes & More. They brought us a pitched plus two glasses of Sangria each. It was too much to drink so we shared the pitcher with a table next to us of four lovely Aruban ladies They were happy to have some. I did manage to drink the two glasses that I am holding though! Ha!
Well, I hope you enjoyed traveling to Aruba with me and my photos too. I will post some more photos soon.
Thank you for stopping by to read this post. Fee free to come back again any time.
Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

I was waiting on the pictures from Aruba – so I can oooh and aaah and wish I were there. Do they serve conch fritters (one of my favorites!)?
No fritters but I used to have the conch in a stew. It was delicious! 😋
Enjoy Halloween in Aruba. I imagine they observe the Day of the Dead as well.
I don’t know if they do. Haven’t seen anything about that here. The kids do have a great time trick-or-treating at the local mall! We saw them one year but missed them this time. 🏝 🎃
You know all the best ways to have fun!
We try, Annette! We’re not getting any younger. This is our one vacation away each year. We hope to do something else next year before we can’t travel any more. Enjoying every year we have! 🥰 🏝 🎃
