Pounding waves, sea spray and wind dominate the north shore of Aruba. The crashing surf erodes some rock and centuries later natural bridge was formed.
The relentless pounding continued and natural bridge collapsed in September 2005, fortunately during the night. The pounding and force continue and Baby Bridge is forming, beautiful in its own right.
We ducks and our humans love the water and are in awe of the power and beautiful sea spray. Baby Bridge is beautiful,
but we spent much of our time watching crashing waves.
There is a refreshment area and a nice gift shop. Also, a clean restroom is available for $1.00. They must pay for water to be brought here. There is no admittance fee to Natural Bridge. We liked natural bridge area.
Approaching Natural Bridge from Alto Vista Chapel, our guide showed us an inlet where local residents had fed sharks.
They are not allowed to do that now, so we did not see sharks here.
Continuing our tour, Ayo Rock Formations were next.
The Arawak, Aruba’s early residents, considered this a sacred place.
We saw these drawings in a cave. These boulders are huge and their placement a mystery.
Ayo Rocks are home to several whip-tailed lizards.
The males are cobalt blue and the females blue gray with light blue dots. Very colorful and very fast.
Continuing to Savaneta on the calmer coast, lunch was provided at La Granja Peruvian Restaurant.
Chicken, ribs, rice and a drink. Very tasty and the service was fast and friendly. We would definitely go back. Soapy’s mom got a little crazy and put us here.
We really feel small.
Another stop was swimming at Baby Beach. Very nice, calm beach
but we did not swim here. We walked to another area to watch the pounding surf again.
We will swim at MooMba Beach tomorrow.
