Bonaire Island Tour
15 February 2008 | Bonaire
We rented a Van today to drive around the island. It was a clunker and the key didn't work on any door except the back hatch. Sort of funny climbing in the back to open the thing every time we stopped.
Bonaire is a neat island and gave us our first taste of the fairly desert like ABCs. Lots of dry earth and catctus. They make fences out of cactus for heaven's sake (very effective that).
Our tour took us around the entire island. We saw flamingos in the north where park lands cover most of the area. The ruggad windward coast had beautiful rocky beaches and breakers along with cave paintings from the original pre colombian inhabitants. The south has Lac Baai, the famous wind surfing destination, and the lighthouse. The West coast has the slave huts and the main town of Kralendyke. A full and enjoyable day.
