To pick things up from where we left off last time, I’m here in Eagle beach on record for the 2nd part of my October 2017 Aruba Trip Report.
It’s a perfect day out here with minimal clouds, warm but refreshing temperature, lovely breeze, and most of the all, the water feels great. I got out of the water to record this episode but I’m gonna hop back in again after I’m done.
Now for the recount of our experiences yesterday or day 2 of our trip. It was a Monday morning filled with busy work and errands. We rented a house instead of a timeshare so we had to take care of stuff for that. Afterwards, I went grocery shopping on Super Food and headed to the digital hotspot center to get my pocket Wi-Fi reactivated.
We headed over to Eduardo’s for a well-deserved snack. If you haven’t tried their Acai bowls, I definitely urge you to get one the next time you swing by Palm Beach. It’s basically made up of some kind of puree at the bottom, granola in the middle, and assorted fruits on the top with coconut shavings.
Most of the day was spent at Arashi, which was bizarrely empty for long stretches of time so we had the pristine beach to our ourselves during the first and latter parts of our stay. Paradise on earth.
We intended to head out earlier for dinner but we opted to relax first at home after coming back from Arashi for some downtime with just us listening to music and sipping wine.
Later on, we ate at Chihuahua’s Fiesta and Grill for some good ol’ Mexican food. It has the best shrimp ceviche I’ve ever tasted on the island and is definitely one of the best, if not the best, Mexican restaurants in Aruba.
Topping the day off was some ice cream sundaes from McDonald’s which was a pretty decent way to end the day if you ask me.
So back to Eagle beach, I’m mostly just relaxing for the fun part later in the day — One Happy Podcast’s 3rd Anniversary Party. The party will be at Legends Pub, which if you’ve never heard of, is the brainchild of the geniuses behind Eduardo’s Beach Shack and Scott’s Brats. It’s a cool sports bar that I totally recommend.
ON THIS EPISODE OF ONE HAPPY PODCAST, YOU WILL:
– Get a heads up on why you should always carry an I.D. with you while you on the island.
– Know an inventive way I came up with to open beer bottles at the beach.
– Hear about me being a world-class beach napper, or at least I think so.
