After a sightseeing tour of Aruba (Aruba - Overseas Territory of the Netherlands. P.1), we went back to the ship for a while, had light lunch and then went to the beach.
We saw a wedding photo shoot on the beach - and why not! :)
This was a really relaxing trip! The hot sun, the beautiful sea with amazingly clean and clear blue water, white hot sand... As they say in such cases, it was a heavenly delight! :))))

And here's a small bonus at the end of the story about Aruba - another beautiful sunset! :)
