So today I was looking for something different to do than only beaches. I needed to throw something else in there to mix it up a little before we head to the beach. I thought maybe today would be a good day to head to San Nicolas and explore the artwork like we did last time we were here. I was sure there had to be new things painted and since Sakari is an artist...this would be right up her alley.
I packed our things for the day and we headed out the door but...
Last time we were here we parked at the police station and walked around. But I looked online and found that they had a Visitors Center. It said that you could go there and they can give you a map of the walking tour to all the arts. I knew exactly what the center looked like from online...which was very brightly painted. It was super easy to find.
However, when we arrived, they were closed. I kinda forgot that it was Sunday. Oops. That's what happens when you've been here for awhile and keeping track is not really on your agenda. Well, there was a map online but we really didn't use it and just took off on our own.
So I guess I will just show you around. Some are definitely new (at least I don't remember them) and others I did remember.
Now I do have to say that I was a little disappointed that this particular painting was no longer. I had really hoped that it was still "good". You stand here and it looks like you are in a box. Well, no more. :(
So last time we came here we stopped at KFC for ice cream. Sakari said she wanted to make this "our thing" so off to KFC we went. It's always a great thing to cool off in the a/c.
I did want to mention (because I think I forgot to mention it yesterday) that as of yesterday (Saturday) Aruba has started to enforce wearing masks again while inside. I guess the numbers had went up and they were getting nervous enough to say that's it, time to enforce the masks again. So, we did bring our masks with us from the car.
Our walking tour was over and we had circled back around to our car. We had a good time walking around and seeing all the paintings. Now there was one that we had searched all over for... this iguana. It wasn't a painting, it was a sculpture attached to a building. We could not find it anywhere and we even doubled up some of the areas trying to find it. We were so sad.
This is what we were looking for:
