Rough Surf and a Natural Bridge

Rough Surf and a Natural Bridge

On the way to see a natural bridge we could see the rough surf crashing into the shoreline, kicking water some 20 to 30 feet in the air at times. The aqua green water quickly turned to deep blue just a few feet off of the coast, indicating that the water there becomes very deep very quickly.

In this short post I share an image from the east side of Aruba near the Andicuri Bay.

Alto Vista Chapel

Alto Vista Chapel

Up in the hills of the north shore of Aruba stands a Catholic Church known as Alto Vista Chapel. Alto vista means "high view", quite fitting for this area since you really can see from one side of the island to the other. The coastline of Venezuela is also visible, some 16 miles away.

The original church was built here in this desert setting back in 1750... 

Beach Life

Beach Life

Just hanging out, smelling the salt in the air and watching the clouds go by. There is just something relaxing about the sights and sounds of life on the shoreline, particularly in the tropics.

Casibari Rock Formations

Casibari Rock Formations

When you think of Aruba visions of pristine beaches and aqua green water come to mind but like most places, there is far more to see than the items appearing on the "Tourists Attractions" list. We visited the Casibari Rock Formations on our way to see the "natural bridge" on the other side of the island.
