Oranjestad is full of tropical color and Dutch whimsy.

So, instead of Paris for spring break we ended up in Aruba. It was not what we had planned, but it was definitely better than sitting home all week feeling sorry for ourselves. We spent Thursday night at home, re-packed our bags and rented a car and drove through Friday night to Philadelphia ( all flights out of Rochester were booked through Monday) and took a 8 AM flight to Aruba.
Upon our arrival at the resort, this was one of the first things we saw.
These iguanas were everywhere--running around the pools and under the tables at the poolside grill. It's a little freaky to be eating your lunch and have a 3 ft iguana run under your feet.
Feeding iguanas at the resort's iguana sanctuary (which is just a few rocks along a path).
Lots of friendly critters to be found on the island.

Waiting for our flight to Paris, not a care in the world.
"I'm going to climb the Eiffel Tower!"
"We will explore the halls of Versailles."
"We will cruise down the Seine."
1:11pm ( 4 minutes before flight)
"What did you just say?"
"What volcano? Where?"
"Joanna, can you come and pick us up?"
"Plans have changed."
