Food For Friends Catering on Bonaire

January 11, 2013

Recently, I hosted a small supper party. I wanted to serve local fish in a creative way. A long time friend, Roland Aarts opened a new catering business, Food for Friends. I had the privilege of being his first customer. Roland prepared a light and sumptuous array of Amuses and one entree. I asked for locally caught Lionfish. Roland did not disappoint with an amazing Lionfish tartare. It was a lovely supper well enjoyed by all.

Wicked Windsurfing

July 26, 2012

Nic Hibdige of Lymington, England – Photo By Sam Hibdige

Our winds are positively amazing this month and last month, and the month before. Today, it was gusting beyond 25 knots at times. The waves rolling into Lac Bay were amazing.

Take a look at Nic Hibdige, GBR 700. He is sponsored by Mystic, Simmer Sails, Starboard and 24-7 Boardsports. He and his super fast slalom sailor brother, Sam take on the waters of Bonaire. Nic is new school freestyle, whilst Sam is old school slalom. Today, Sam was blasting on the blue highway of Lac Bay racing / training with former Olympian, Constanstine “Patun” Saragoza. Sam has clocked 57 KPH in the UK. Today he was rocking his 5.7 TR7 and 86 ltr Isonic.
