Inbound tanker… (Aruba)

While out making some video, I spotted this inbound tanker off the coast of Savaneta, Aruba.

There’s actually quite a bit of ship traffic in the seas around Aruba. In the evening, you can look out and see the ship lights out there. And during the day, if you go atop the Casi Bari rocks, you can see them as well. I’m sure the crews would like to take a break on the island.

Basically, you can rent these cars and they’ll take you on a GPS guided “talking tour” providing you with interesting tidbits along the way.

Might be a fun way to do your own tour of a major city. This company does have cars in other cities, which may be an option for your travel plans.

Mangel Alto, Aruba, Panorama (2014)

Exploring the features of the Nikon 1 AW camera, I went to a place called Mangel Alto on the island of Aruba. This is a great spot for snorkeling, scuba, or just looking at the beautiful blue sea. Here’s the panorama:

That’s one to save for the winter. It will definitely cheer you up and thaw your bones. If you get to Aruba, be sure to check this place out, maybe aboard Tranquilo, a great sailboat that will take you to this exact spot for a day of fun.

Aruba Airport to Hotels, Driving Video

Here’s another one of my Aruba Driving Directions videos. This time, you’ll go from the Queen Beatrix Airport to both the low-rise and high-rise hotel area. Instead of driving through Oranjestaad along the waterfront, you’ll go inland to avoid what can be a very congested area. Depending upon the time of day, both routes can be busy, so be warned. Here it is:

As always, be careful while driving. If you have a passenger with you, let them enjoy the sights during that first, unfamiliar ride. Concentrate on the road. Enjoy your visit to Aruba! (For this video: Cameras and lenses by Nikon.)
