This is the photo he took.
Sheila took this shot of Kenny with the raging surf at his back.
Our group experienced some technical difficulty as we prepared to leave the natural bridge. They were able to get the jeep started after working on it for about 10 minutes.
We headed north along the coast where we passed a tour group on horseback.
We drove by the ruins of the Bushiribana Gold Mill.
We conitinue along the sandy flats of the coast. Here we meet another jeep tour headed in the other direction.
We drive very near the shore in some spots.
Notice how the water shoots up when it hits the cliff.
This is pretty desolate country.
That's our next stop.
The Alto Vista Chapel. It was built in 1952 at the site of the first Catholic Church on the island which was built in 1750.
Time to move on.
Next stop is the California Lighthouse.
Sheila surveys the scene.

Time to go.
Back in Oranjestad. There's Connie.
Our tour is over and we have time to explore town before heading back to the ship.
The Statedam arrived after we did.
We end up at Iguana Joes for a drink.
We had a great view of the street from the bar.
There is the Connie behind the Statedam.
A closer look at Connie.
Sheila checks out the market on the way back to the ship.
Iguana Joe's is in that complex.
We're back on board the ship and looking back into town.
Nice view out into the harbor as we prepare to leave for Curacao.
Nice fishing boat headed back to the marina.
A sailboat also heads in after a day on the water.
Sheila stakes out a nice spot for sail-a-way in the Reflections Lounge.
We have a great view over the bow.
Statendam leaves first.
Nice view of Statendam.
There she goes.
This has to be one of the prettiest sail-a-ways of any port we've been to.
