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.

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.

Development? Rogers Beach, Aruba

During a drive around the southern end of Aruba today, I noticed some changes. One of the most interesting is the location above Rogers Beach, where there used to be a small police trailer parked. There I saw the police trailer moved, the parking lot asphalt scraped away, and a container bearing a sign for new residences. Here’s the panorama to prove it:

New development at Rogers Beach, Aruba? Maybe.

One thing for sureā€¦ the view is spectacular as long as you don’t turn north and see the refinery. Otherwise, a great spot. The water is sapphire blue, the sand soft, and the sunshine bright. Check it out. Maybe it is for you.

Il Faro Blanco, Aruba

Il Faro Blanco is the restaurant on the northwest tip of Aruba, as the name suggests, situated by the lighthouse. Today, I enjoyed a very pleasant business lunch there. Great Italian vegetable soup and a ravioli bolognese. Tasty and good service. Sorry, no food photos, but here is the view:

The vista at sunset can be spectacular. Hopefully, I’ll have the opportunity for a supper there soon. Bon dia.
