Ruby (Red) Tuesday -- Another sampling of Curacao -- Our holiday, or vacation from retirement life, Part Four
People are 'clamoring' for more cruise pictures. So Here are some pictures I took the day of our little visit to Curacao. Just so happens I could find four with nice red colors in them to post on this Ruby (Red) Tuesday.
These fellows made sure we went
where we were supposed to go
Wandering around town, we'd been there before
Curacao is very colorful, the Dutch ordered that a long time ago. The reason was because people were saying it was a 'dull' town. So big government found a way to brighten things up. Maybe that would help brighten our country up right now, somebody please write our new pres.
"Somebody" thought I finally had found
someone who would make me look good(?)
Hint: not a self portrait here
A hearty breakfast should be had before any hard endeavor. I started at the waffle and omelet bar. The red stuff is ketchup. I generally drink two glasses of water with my meals as I take a lot of medicine. Getting two at the start means I don't have to spend precious effort getting refills taken care of.
Our first stop was Curacao. Click here to read about our trip. It is a work in progress, more will follow (I hope).
Mary is in charge there, you can post your own if you wish.
Very colorful town you visited there. I like bright colors too, but I don't want our government mandating the use of it......The neighborhood association does enough of that.lol.
I prefer Salsa on my omelet, but the waffle looks good! Keep the good pics coming! I don't like to travel much myself, but I like seeing pictures and reading about other folks' trips.
Lovely ruby pix from Curacao.
I never have been there not think I ever will, so you posting this report enlighten my grey brain.
Most impressing; Jim snd the multicolored lady.
Made me smile twice.
(As I scrolled down and up).
Glad your'e back and thanks for the
visit,been pretty slack with blogging but hope to get back to it
I never knew that about Curacao. That's a neat idea. In the States, though, whenever anyone paints their house a bright color they get laughed out of town, or something similar.
Well, just kidding, I can see you had the ketchup on the omelet ;-)
Thank you so much for your abiding check on my blog, it's really encouraging to see how tireless you are and read other blogs and support...
There are a few houses in our neighborhood where folks felt so uninhibited- Salmon, lavender (not joking- fact is, there are a couple in shades of purple). Then another one is mustard, along with blue as in a broomstick with red & white trim. Of course not all on my street! Ha...my son's friend told me (he paints houses) having been instructed on what to paint on a number of them, remarked "are ya sure you want to do this"?? Many regretted it. I guess this is going off the subject but I still like the freedom? What would we do w/out color?? Those pictures are great.
We have yet to take a cruise. It's going to be a present we give each other when the girls are all away at college.
Loved the pictures!
