Natural Bridge, Aruba

Natural Bridge was one of Aruba’s most popular tourist attractions until Mother Nature had her way with it and it collapsed on 02 September 2005.  Still, there is another, smaller, natural bridge nearby.  From the beach at Natural Bridge one can enjoy the beautiful, intense blue of the Caribbean.  Lizards are common on Aruba.  In particular, the Aruba Whiptail Lizard (Cnemidophorus arubensis) can be seen around Natural Bridge.  The male Whiptails are blue and the females are brown.

    I guess I was lucky to have seen it in 2003! What I remember most about Aruba was the flooding they had while we were there.
