Finally getting around to my blog. I had forgotten to figure out how to move the position along, so have waited until I could do this justice.....
Had a great sail to Bonaire from Grenada way back in November, and stayed there 5 days. Did a tour of Bonaire in a hire car with John and Andy from S.Y. Happy Spirit", which was mostly off-road stuff, but a lot of fun. Only had one incident of having to physically push the car out of mud, so a good day !
Not much wind while we were there, but can see why it's a windsurfing mecca.
Bonaire is a very dry island which harvests tons of salt every year, the other main industry being tourism. We also saw lots of flamencos, wild pigs, and healthy looking donkeys on our travels.
