Home  Curacao 9/4/2008

Curacao combines urban pleasures with natural charms. The island is more industrial and less touristy than either Bonaire or Aruba.  It was a great place for us to provision and find lots of American products that we had been missing.


The channel into the anchorage at Spaanse Water reminded us of Arizona... without the ocean view of course. :)


The Queen Emma bridge is a floating bridge that swings open to allow large ships to enter into the Willemstad harbor. While the bridge is open, there are free ferries that transport locals and tourists to the other side of Willemstad.
