59 Candles, 59 Things – part thirty

Thirty eighth thing –  I can’t believe it took this long to get to sunsets but then this series is not written in any order, rather it is about 59 things that make me happy.

And sunsets make me happy, especially if I am near water. Or while drinking a glass of wine. Or both.

I could wax poetic about sunsets but when I saw this quote on Pinterest, I realized I couldn’t say it better. I hope you’ll enjoy my love of sunsets in photos I’ve taken in my travels.






This series, “59 Candles, 59 Things” is my tribute to my 59th birthday in May 2015. I’m sharing 59 Things that make me happy.  If you’d like to see more of this series, just click on “59 Things” under categories and thanks for visiting!


Travels in Aruba – part ten

At our hotel, Bucuti & Tara Beach Resorts, Happy Hour is twice a day – 4:00-6:00 and again from 9:00-10:00. Just another thing we enjoyed at this wonderful place in Aruba.

Snacks – chicken tenders with dip, chips and salsa, jalapeno poppers were among the choices featured during the 4:00-6:00 Happy Hour.  Add the sun, moving ever lower in the sky and setting right around 6:30 each evening, gave us the most spectacular sunsets as the trade winds swirled around us.  Add to that, our favorite bartenders and servers – Jessica, Geraldine, Greg to name a few, who knew Spence likes the Aruba-brewed, Balashi and I either the Prosecco or when they ran out one evening, that same pink champagne that we enjoyed at check in.  Here’s a few of our Happy Hour and sunset photos over our nine days in paradise.
