The Folks Fly Home
18 February 2008 | Bonaire
Mom and Dad flew home today so we spent some time onboard today cleaning up. We miss Mom and Dad already.
We have been getting to know the folks on Banjo next door and they are a wonderful couple. Diving nuts like the rest of us. They have given us several great diving tips and other local knowledge. Cruisers are general just wonderful folks.
Hideko and I have officially added Bonaire to our places we could live list. The island is quaint but not too deserted. There's a great place for breakfast in town, a solid pizza place, many wonderful restaurants with various cuisines, enough shopping options to get electronics, groceries and other stuff as needed (in particular fresh milk) and, of course, fantastic water sports. We're looking forward to testing out the Windsurfing and Kite surfing beachs. The island is not crowded at all (15,000) and get cruise ships far less freqently than most ports in the neighborhood. Best of all the people of Bonaire are friendly and kind.
