Makenzie, Ella and Gavin came down to the boat. Gavin only came down for a week.
Makenzie, Ella and Gavin got to see Renaissance Island which we call, Flamingo Island.
There are flamingos that live on the island, but they are not native to Aruba. Some flamingos are pink. They are really good at hunting for food like algae, plankton and shrimp. There are also some white flamingos. One of the reasons I think the flamingos are different colors is that the pink flamingos bully the white flamingos. The white flamingos eat less.
We went on a tour of the Island.
We went to the natural bridge, which was really fun, the lighthouse which was really cool to climb and the natural pool which was amazing. We went to a cave the Native Americans used to hide in. They were hiding from the Spanish who came to take over the island. The Spanish would grab the slaves and shipped them to Venezuela. We also went to a pond and got a fish pedicure where the fish eat the dead skin off your feet. I tried it and it tickled when the fish touched my feet.
Our last stop was baby beach, where we got to snorkel, have a drink at the bar and chill. The tour was fun. I liked the stories Big G and Tony told us about each place.
Visited the Aruba Aloe Factory and learned about how all kinds of stuff is made with aloe. It was pretty cool.
The Butterfly Farm was so much fun, we went back a second time so Makenzie, Ella and Dad could see it.
Stay tuned to see where the new year takes us.
