Up Early again on the ship and we are pulling into our second port of the cruise. Yesterday we were in Aruba. Let me just say, there is nothing negative I can say about Aruba. It is just as beautiful as you imagine it would be. The water is incredibly blue and the beaches are pure white.
I am pretty sure I can see a coming back to spend a whole week on those beaches. May be some of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. And I heard there are more incredible beaches on the other side of the island. There just wasn’t enough time to explore the whole island.
The smiles on my kids faces as they saw the shores of Aruba will be ingrained in my mind forever.
This morning, though we are pulling into the port at Curacao and it is before 6:00 am. They are all still in bed for now.
So, I am all by myself watching us approach today’s destination. The sun is slowly rising over the island. The island is slowly revealing itself as we approach. Each island is a little different. The water surrounding each island a little bit different shade of blue.
I have the feeling of Christmas morning. The childlike wonder of what will we find here. The crazy excited feeling of the fun to come. It is really a wonderful feeling to have as an adult.
In about an hour we will be free to get off the ship and explore
So, I am going to go get a quick run in on the treadmill before we head out. Taking this fun, excited Christmas feeling with me to the treadmill. Can’t say I’ve ever felt that way about the treadmill before.
Oh, the fun of exploring!!
