Remembering Curacao

  I am linking up with Fiona's Green Day  and Gemma's  Scenic Weekend 

Happy Easter to everyone,, I hope you have a great holiday weekend.

With this post, I wanted to show some pretty flowers and since there are no blooms here I am taking you back to Curacao. These are some scenes from around our hotel in Curacao.


Beautiful trees and blooming bushes surrounded the hotel. 

 Iguana on the front lawn of the hotel.


Not sure, what flower this is? But, it is beautiful!


This is the open lobby of our hotel in Curacao.


The bougainville plant is one of my favorites, they come in many different colors.



I will end this post with one of the many beautiful sunsets we enjoyed during our vacation.

I hope you enjoyed visiting Curacao with me, it was nice to relive my vacation from last year.  Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate your comment.
Thanks for stopping by to see my post and thanks to Fiona for hosting Green Day  and to Gemma for hosting Scenic Weekends.  I wish everyone a safe and happy weekend.

  5. I like every picture. If I can sell a couple of my guns there will be a new camera for me. I am not worried that people are coming to take them away from me before I can do so.

    That decorates your Easter.

  10. Hi Eileen, yes i enjoyed your trip to Curacao, it actually is just like in our country, scenes i see everyday. That flower you don't know is actually Ceasalpinia pulcherrima. I have a hedge of it in our own yard.

  14. Happy Easter to you! So many exotic flowers to see. Hmm, I don't know if I would like to encounter wild iguanas outside the hotel, though. Really relaxing just looking outside the lobby.

  17. Amigos, verdadeiros são para sempre, porque
    quando dois corações se unem, formando um só,
    DEUS se manifesta ali, através do amor
    e o amor é mais forte que a morte,
    não importa a distância,
    no coração estarão sempre perto.
    não importam as diferenças.
    Sempre haverá um ombro para recostar,
    mãos para ajudar,olhos para enxergar e chorar de alegria e dor,
    bocas para expressar as verdades e sorrir.
    Os bons amigos são como estrelas
    você nem sempre as vê, mas você sabe que sempre estão lá.
    Esta é a maior responsabilidade de nossa vida
    e a prova evidente de que
    duas almas não se encontram por acaso.
    Por tudo isso e muito mais eu digo
    Deus abençoe nossa linda amizade
    Deus abençoe por estar sempre de mãos estendidas
    nos momentos em
    mais preciso de afago e carinho.
    Linda seja sua semana beijos no seu coração
    caricias na sua alma linda e generosa.
    E 1 de Abril ,mais carinho meu e amizade é para sempre não é mentira..
    Evanir.

  18. Great shots Eileen - what a fabulous view from the hotel foyer.
    I visited Curacao MANY years ago when the ship I was travelling on from Australia to England (Shaw Savill liner "Northern Star") stopped off there. Fascinating place! Thanks for sharing (and for stopping by my blog).

  19. Wow, Eileen, beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing.

  20. Wow! The flowers are stunning, as is the scenery! We have that orange flower here...it's called a Mexican Bird of Paradise. very different from the Bird of Paradise grown on the islands of the Pacific. There is a Sonoran desert version that is all yellow. We seem them everywhere.
