I know what you’re thinking…this Caribbean cruise seems really lovely and all the beaches are so beautiful but what’s really missing is a death-defying adventure sport. And you’re absolutely right! So yesterday we booked a windsurfing lesson at Malmok Beach for our stop in Oranjestad Aruba. What possessed us to attempt windsurfing on the Caribbean’s windiest island? I’m not sure. But we actually did pretty well and even managed to stay above the water most of the time. (OK, so it wasn’t exactly death-defying but that’s as close as it’s going to get this week!) It was a fun sport and I’d love to try it someplace less challenging next time to get a little better at it. Aruba was the last of our stops for this trip and now we’ve got two relaxing days at sea ahead to bring us back to Miami (and back to reality) on Sunday.
