O is for

OCEAN





Surrounded by the Caribbean, Aruba cherishes the OCEAN and what it gives the islanders.  While the first photo is from the rougher side of the island, the second is from the beach where our resort is.

The OCEAN that surrounds Aruba can be many things. It can be warm, blue and calm. It can be ferocious and life threatening. It can be soothing and nurturing. It can be destructive.

However, one thing that remains constant is the amazing sea life beneath that can be seen when snorkeling.  My snorkeling is only, however, in very calm waters because if in the choppy waters too long, I begin to feel seasick!

A few things seen by my daughter, Angel and the Pres on this trip were:

Angel Fish
Puffer Fish

Starfish
Sea Snake
