Also on the north coast are the ruins of a gold mine at Seroe Gerard and a refinery at Bushiribana in a particularly bleak and sparsely vegetated area. The machinery at the mill, right on the coast, was damaged by sea spray and moved to Frenchman’s Pass in 1824. A partly paved road leads to the natural bridge where long ago the roof of a cave collapsed, leaving only the entrance standing. It is actually fairly low and not as spectacular as tourist brochures would have you believe. There is a souvenir shop. On the road to the natural bridge there is an Ostrich Farm (T5859630, email@example.com, open daily for guided tours 0900-1600, US$12 adults, US$6 children 4-16) where you can hand feed the birds and see their eggs in the incubator. These African birds seem to be ideally suited to the arid terrain and rugged landscape of Aruba.
