Looking Down

Flying always presents the opportunity for interesting perspectives. On a recent commercial flight, I spotted this scene below, a spit of land along the east coast of the USA:

I’m not sure exactly where this was. I lost track of our location. Still, looking down from 35,000 feet can be very instructive, giving one a sense of how big, or how small, this planet is. Take time to enjoy the view wherever you are.

Gallo Rojo, Aruba, iPhone video

Stopped at Gallo Rojo in San Nicolaas, Aruba, DWI recently. This is a corner joint that served breakfast and baked goods, not to mention the local papers and cold drinks. Did a little iPhone video just for fun. Here it is:

Tasty ham, egg, and cheese sandwich there. Just what you might need on the way to or from Baby Beach or to start the day after a long night. Enjoy every meal. Bon dia.

Holiday Inn, Aruba, iPhone video

Might as well take a look at the Holiday Inn on Palm Beach, Aruba, DWI. The lobby was recently renovated as well as some other improvements. Here’s a quick video taken with my iPhone.

I’ll keep these quick vids coming. A few “local” things on the way. Stay tuned.

Playa Linda on Palm Beach, Aruba

The sun was going down and I wanted to test the iPhone 6 in that difficult video condition. Being on Palm Beach, Aruba, made it a great place. So here’s it is, showing the Playa Linda timeshare then over to the beach.

The performance on the iPhone 6 was fairly good. Sunset is a difficult challenge for video exposure, especially with limited controls. Either way, we got another look at this part of Aruba.
