Travels in Aruba – part three

After a fabulous nights sleep in the best hotel bed, we awoke after 12 hours.  While Aruba is the same time zone as Michigan, we were zapped after a long day of travel.

The view from our balcony.

Out to the balcony to enjoy my tea, Spence joined me wearing one of the robes provided by the hotel.  What a view.


Breakfast is included at Bucuti and Tara Beach Resort and for late risers such as Spence and myself, runs till 11:00. And what a breakfast.

You can sit inside Elements Restaurant with floor to ceiling, spotless windows and a view of the beach and ocean, or outside on the deck.  The breakfast has more choices than I could list and needless to say, we indulged.  Not unusual for me but Spence rarely eats breakfast and he made up for a lifetime of missed morning meals. Here’s just a small sample:

Spence enjoying fresh pineapple, melon and fresh orange juice along with his bagel, lox, cream cheese, onion and capers….I think he had an omelet, bacon and sausage before this plate. Seriously.
The papaya was the best I’ve had since our years spent in Costa Rica and yes, that is Eggs Benedict, one of the daily special treats found at the breakfast buffet.
