As we left there, I noticed this sign. Some people might see a connection.
A couple more geocaches, a nice lunch overlooking the beach, a bit of shopping for BJ, and it suddenly was time to raise anchor for the (first &) last time for this trip.

Aruba is located just 14 miles off the coast of Venezuela. There is a lot of trade with Venezuela, especially with the fishermen.
Much of the western side of the island was shoulder to shoulder resorts on the beautiful beaches, backed by lots of international name brand shops.
Antilla. This 400 ft. German registered ship was intentionally scuttled at the beginning of WWII. The Antilla crew spend the majority of WWII interned in Jamaica. The ship lays in about 60 feet of water and is a popular dive site.
Perhaps if we'd gone exploring on our own I would feel different, but Aruba was the biggest disappointment to me. It's arguably the most well known Caribbean island, but left me without any interest in returning. Curacao, on the other hand, is pulling me back.

I didn't know what to expect of Curacao, but found delightful surprises around each corner. This is a place that needs some serious exploration!

As we left the dock, one of the many taxi drivers selling island tours caught our eye. We told him we'd chat more if he was still there when we got back.
As we returned to the dock area, we spotted Eldon, the taxi driver we'd talked with earlier. He was easy to spot since he was the tallest guy around.
