I stood in front of the giant anchor and prayed for all the sailors and merchant marines past and present in Aruba. The wind swept location and the view made a heart warming experience.

This is on the side of the road on the way out to Baby Beach. Down the dirt road past it is Grapefield Beach. Like a lot of Aruba there’s nothing there but scrub, cacti, rock and ocean. It’s beautiful in a stark, barren way....More

Not only does this make a great selfie location. It's on the way to Baby Beach, you might get a visit from some "wild" donkeys, you could have stop in San Nicholas and checked out the murals plus what an ocean view!

On the way to Baby Beach, it is definitely a picture spot because of its meaning for all missing seamen

The red Anchor is on the way to Baby Beach. It is a nice stop for a quick photo. It’s huge...you can’t miss it!

This anchor is pretty cool. It’s on your way to baby beach, and is a landmark to actually help you find the beach

This is a lovely memorial. Very large and easy to photograph. The wild donkeys in the area make it even better. It is on the way to several different beaches and it's just a quick pull off.

Don´t know why this is a photo moment.. Not very interesting at all. Do not get out of the car, it is too hot and you are in the middle of nowhere. Just drive on to Baby Beach

Sorry, but it was nice to see, but I did not bother getting out of the car for the photo. If in the area, stop by.
