Curacao – beach

  • Posted on January 29, 2016 at 6:19 pm

Last but not least, beach views. The first few are at Grand Knip beach where we did some swimming. It was very calm water and it stayed about 10-15 feet deep all the way out to the point so it was very easy to swim and see lots of fish!

Finally, some beautiful pictures of the beach and ocean taken by Joseph.

Curacao – Willemstad

  • Posted on January 29, 2016 at 6:00 pm

One day we went to the one city on the island, Willemstad. It’s rather interesting. There’s a round market and the old market. There are so many shops down there. We got the usual souvenirs, and I even wandered through the Tiffany store there. There are beautiful buildings on the waterfront in the Punda section of Willemstad.

This is a closer view of the building on the right

If you look to the left, you look up at the Queen Juliana bridge, which was a little unnerving to drive over.

I had to take the obligatory picture of the Curacao sign… with the Christmas reindeer still on top….

The Rif Fort that guards the waterway is a world heritage site. The walls are made of rock and coral

This is a beautiful church we found driving around another day trying to find gas.

We also went to some caves up by the airport. They limit photos in the Hato caves but I got a few photos

This is where Blue Curacao liqueur was originally made…
