Sister Sarah, Ramona, Sandi and I did the Banana Bus tour.

We started off with a 90 minute hike in Arikok National Park, the boundries of which encompose 18% of Aruba's land mass.

There were tons of cacti, goats, aloe vera, rocks, lizards and many different plants/trees ... very different from what we see in Toronto. Our guide was very knowledgeable and told us holistically how the different leaves and berries could be used.

Then we spent some time at Baby Beach.

We browsed in some shops before we went back to the boat.

Sister Sarah headed to the pool. I wanted some quiet time so sat on the Promenade Deck (deck seven) in a deck chair, read my book with a cold beer and watched as we said good-bye to Aruba. Others did the same.

A group of us had supper at the Michelangelo Dining Room. It was the second formal night so we were looking more spiffy!

At 11:30pm, they unvealed the Champagne Waterfall in the Piazza which allowed everyone with photo opps
