Flamingoes and Curacao Blue

a relaxing day

sunny 28 °C

There is a lake in the golf course at the Blue Bay resort which has an assortment of water birds including pelicans and flamingoes. Chris took a few photos and today we all set off to find some flamingoes in the wild, in their natural setting.

We headed north to the natural reserve

We had a wee walk along a path, the flamingoes were far off in the distance (top left in photo)

Chris and a few others walked back and took a second path which got them closer to the birds

It was hot in the sun and we still had not visited a Landhuis (country house) so we decided to go to Landhuis Chobolobo where we learnt a bit about the history of the Curacao Blue Licqueur.

The licqueur is made from the lahara orange

There are more clolurs / flavours than just the original blue. We were offered three flavours to taste - the blue, tamarind - orange, and the chocolate - brown in colour.

The Wedding Day

on the beach at Blue Bay resort

sunny 28 °C

Today Karen and Jordy were married on the beach and they had lovely weather. There were only 15 people at the wedding but they represented all the other family members and friends who could not come.

The setting was very romantic and everything went to plan.
