(So they have him not in store to see if there is nothing in is) Nice to then continue to drive, then you come up on a beautiful white beach where you can snorkel.

    The Very Definition of "NEATO"!!! It was late morning, the sun was approaching its zenith when off to the east we saw sails! English ships coming to reclaim Curacao? Pirates? All around us the men stood warily beside the cannons...waiting for the sentries to confirm the sighting as friend or foe...

    Beautiful fort and is certainly worth to go along. Especially after reading about the history of the fort and the surrounding area.
