Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Aruba in a Landslide

Tagged: ,

In our weekly “Beach pic of the day” posts on the Facebook page, it wasn’t even a close on this week as the below image of a beach in Aruba easily fended off all comers to its throne. As we’ve seen consistently in the past, it’s hard to beat the palm trees/white sand beach/crystal clear blue water combo.

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Skimming Aruba

Tagged: ,

A sole skim boarder heading for the shore with his only companions a lonely palm tree, sand, water and threatening skies was enough to grab the imagination of my readers to make this the most reacted to image on my Facebook page from the last week.

The surprise was that it beat out a picture taken at Bahia Honda State Park in the Florida Keys, a must stop for anyone traveling in that area.

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Baby Beach, Aruba

Tagged: , , , ,

When we first started making trips to the Caribbean on an annual basis, one of the first destinations we were able to visit was Aruba. Somehow we got lucky on a deal and booked a stay at the Tamarijn Aruba, an all-inclusive resort located on Drulf Beach, a couple miles south of the famous Palm Beach on Aruba’s western coast. I can still remember reading about Baby Beach and how it was a local’s beach, about as far away as you could...
