Aruba

Aruba is one of the ABC islands. We visited the C - Curacao - yesterday, missed out the B which is Bonaire, and arrived today at the A.
Aruba is a fairly small island, but it has a seven mile stretch of white sand beach.
We walked from our ship and joined it at one end, just as a pelican splashed right down in the sea beside us. It was fishing for an early lunch and kept flying up into the sky, then diving straight down to catch little fish.
We carried on walking through an expensive resort, then got to a quiet stretch of sand to set up our camp.
There was a strong breeze blowing that whipped up the waves, and turned our suntan lotion very crunchy, but a very lovely morning.
