We arrived in Aruba at 2:30 PM after leaving Santa Cruz, Curacao in the dark at 5:30 AM. The sail was not pleasant as we had two sets of seas. One from the southeast and the other from the northeast both about 7 - 8 feet with 20 to 25 knots of wind. We only had the jib out and with the current we were doing about 6.5 knots over ground. But the ride was corkscrew like and Moira took some seasick pills. When we cleared customs and immigration we moved up to Oranjestad and anchored at the end of the runway. We anchored between 2 boats that we did a lot of cruising with on the first trip. They all look great. We will go to bed early as we did not get much sleep last night because we were concerned about our anchor and we had a few squalls. Then we left at 5:30 and the seas were such that we could not nap.
We will visit with out friends tomorrow.
