Oranjestad

Oranjestad is full of tropical color and Dutch whimsy.



Just a warning to watch for crazy drivers.

Pretty in Pink


We should have eaten here.


Palm Trees are not native to Aruba, but plastic will do.


This home was for sale.  I like the entry.


Beautifully restored home from the 1920s...





This was the biggest church in town.


Time for shopping.


Lots of flowering trees.


Legos, anyone?


See what I mean by Dutch Whimsy?  I think I've coined a new architectural term.


This tour bus offers everything but air conditioning.


Sidewalk Gardens


Everything was in English.



We found this as we detoured through a neighborhood.

Dutch Whimsy is a great term. I wish our chapel was yellow and had a front porch too.

That is a colorful place. America is kinda boring in that aspect.

Cute little town. They seem like a lively bunch.
