Aruba!!!!

It took me a week, but I finally scaled down the pictures from Aruba. I also scaled BACK on the number. I took a gazillion pictures, particularly one day at sunset when I think I took one every 5 seconds *laugh*

Here is a preview of how gorgeous Aruba was:





For the rest of the pictures, you can go to see the trip photos or see the full set of the sunset photos

I wish we could have stayed for more than 4 days. :)

The one thing I regret is that I didn't want to spend the money on a waterproof digital camera since I am still unemployed. Instead, we got two disposable waterproof cameras. MUCH SUCKAGE!!!!! The photos from our snorkeling turned out to be just a bunch of blue with one or two things barely visible. I'm going to see if I can save some with photoshop, and if so I will post them. although there is no photo memories of the snorkel trip, it was AWESOME!!!! We took boat out with an OPEN BAR. We drank a LOT in a short period of time. The snorkeling was in two areas - one for the fish and the other at a shipwreck. Gorgeous. Beyond words. I just love snorkeling.

When I got back, I did some research and talked a camera shop guy into selling me a $300 waterproof camera for $140. Nice little 7.1 MP with 3X optical zoom and 10x digital zoom. It has a TON of settings and even takes video underwater. YAY! If I had known that the disposables would cost me about as much as buying the digital, I would have done it BEFORE the trip.

Soon to come - a post about our Col. Potter's Cairn Terrier Rescue foster dog. He's a sweetheart with a funny name who was rescued from a puppy mill. He will soon make someone a GREAT pet.

I'm glad you had so much fun! You needed it.

You're going to love the waterproof camera, but I can't promise that you'll be any happier with the pictures. I just love the ability to take it to the pool or out anyplace where it might get wet. Very convenient! But most of our underwater pictures are bunch of blue with some darker blurs too.
