Aruba Hyatt

Last day in Aruba and we checked out of our condo.  They will store luggage until we need to go to airport for late afternoon flight.  A cab driver suggested we enjoy the gardens at the Hyatt.  We did that.

One evening during dinner at a Hyatt beach bar and grill, Soapy’s mom got hiccups.  Without a word, the waiter presented her with a small dish of maraschino cherries.

He suggested that she eat all of them rather rapidly and hiccups should stop.  She likes the cherries anyway, so she ate them and hiccups were gone.  Something we will remember in the future if they return.

Today we admired the black swans.

They are wonderful.  Since this is a tropical garden, this iguana joined us.

Also, we found whiptail lizards.

Love the colors.

Zeb and Soapy were happy to pose in front of another distant relative.

Our moms really liked the black swans swimming with the goldfish (or are they carp).

Here is a glimpse of the garden and river.  Our moms could not get a good photo.  Gardens are very extensive and create a wonderful oasis in this tropical paradise.

Beautiful landscaping

We stayed on the beach for a while, enjoying the water, sun and sand and beverages.

We will miss Aruba, but hope to see you there next time we visit the island.
