Little Bear's Adventure's
I love yellow, so this is the chair I picked! It was a little drippy, since there had been rain the night before. But no complaints from me.
I perched myself on the back of this chair, facing the east. I kept waiting for the sun to appear. But it was cloudy.
I gave up and turned around to watch the ocean. I couldn't see the beautiful turquoise of the water since it was hazy. But I'm not complaining!
I will take a cloudy & uncrowded morning at the beach over sunny & crowded, any day!
Watching the Mill
Most people think of beaches and palm trees when they think of Aruba. In this photo I'm in a palm tree, but I'm not looking at the beach.
I climbed up the palm tree to have a look at this windmill! That's something I never expected to see on a trip to Aruba. But Aruba is owned by the Dutch, you know.
Now you can see it a little better... but I'm blurred. Beth really needs to learn how to use her camera or improve her Photoshop skills!
I had to take the camera from Beth so I could just take a photo of the whole windmill. I love that thing. A windmill with palm trees!
Most of the tourists who visit the island of Bonaire are there to dive. Diving is the fun part, but here I am doing the work part... preparing the equipment.
Well, I didn't do a whole lot of prep. But, look at how the wind was whipping at that dive flag. Somebody had to hold the tank down so it wouldn't blow over.
As I did my job I watched Beth fumbling to get her wetsuit on. She was dragging all sorts of stuff over to the boat and I couldn't wait to go!
She said I'd have to stay in the camera bag. It was too windy. All that time I thought we were going to be scuba buddies! That really made me mad.
Beth said she felt really bad that I couldn't go. She said they didn't have a tank or fins or a wetsuit that would fit me.
I am never going to Bonaire again!
Hotel Pool in Curacao
When you go on an island vacation, you need to relax. That's what I did in Curacao recently.
I relaxed and listened to the waterfall while I lounged by the pool.
Suddenly there was a crackling crash!
This photo does not begin to show the incredible size of the palm frond that landed in the pool. Luckily no one got hit. Look hard and you will see me taking a ride.
Beth knows I love a little adventure, so she gave me a ride!
When recently visiting the island of Curacao, I couldn't resist a little posing.
A is my favorite letter and it's right smack in the middle, when you spell out the name Curacao!
Look hard to see me.
I was very excited to pose for Beth...
... until all these people arrived and started copying me and posing all over the place. Beth had to rescue me before someone crawled into the A.
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
