nice Aruba excursion Oct 09, 2014
We disembarked our Princess cruise ship and made it to our very good Princess excursion, by bus, boat, and semisubmarine.

Aruba has no big mountains to catch the rain, so it is a desert island. We left on the bus and saw real houses (no slums) in a desert environment. We saw tall cactus and other desert plants. We stopped a while at a big rock with a convenient walk up. We took turns getting photos sitting on the rock. Then they bussed us to the north side with bad Alantic currents; where we stopped at the natural bridge, another photo opp. We didnt get to see their nice sandy beaches on the south side.

Then the bussed us to a large lighthouse, but couldnt get in. Then they bussed us to a small port where we started our boat ride. The water was clean and green, and we enjoyed our ride.

Then we arrived at the semi submarine to see the German WW2 shipwreak. The German seamen scuttled their own ship cuz it was better to be a Doutch POW than a Natzi. The submarine circled the wreak to give all of us good angles; and they told us to cover our flash on our cameras so we didnt get a very bright spot on our photo from the flash bouncing off the glass.

We got on the boat and had a nice ride back.
