While trekking from the bus stop to the California Lighthouse, we spotted SO many brightly colored lizards. Check out the thorn bushes some lizards are hiding under. Yeah. Those thorns are serious business so watch where you walk.

Donkeys, Aruba

We didn’t see any donkeys while trekking around Aruba. We saw donkey droppings, and this donkey/horse hitch but no live donkeys.

Donkeys Sign Aruba

(As per sign found at California Lighthouse)


Donkeys were brought to Aruba in the 1500’s by the Spanish conquistadors to assist the Indians they enslaved. When the Indians were removed to Hispaniola, the donkeys left behind became creatures of the wild. Later settlers used them as transportation and again were set loose. Visit today’s, Donkey Sanctuaries which provide loving homes for these hard-working animals.
