Windsurf Bliss

Carole Hibdige, British Windsurf Shredder

What makes you happy?? What keeps you sane in between life’s chaos? Many on Bonaire find their zen on the water with the wind. The windsurfer is a unique character. Most are heavily addicted to weather sites and most own some sort of wind meter. Many plan winter escapes to warmer climates in search of the wind. Bonaire is one of the Caribbean’s hottest windsurf Mecca. My friend Carole shot this photo of Trevor, her wonderful better half. He clearly found his bliss.

Trevor and Carole and their windsurf clan escape to their island villa twice a year for weeks of windsurf fun. Light or high wind, the Hibdiges seek out the wind on Lac Bay.

Tres Leche Gelatto at Capriccio's

It’s January 2 and I am back to clean eating after a typical holiday chow fest. It started Nov. 21 in Anguilla and I officially started clean eating today.

Recently I dined at Capriccio’s, one of Bonaire’s premier Italian restaurants. We had a great meal and of course amazing wine. After, the 5 of us shared two desserts; tres leche gelatto and chocolate sorbet. Wowww, pure decadence.

Chocolate Sorbet

New Years Eve we had a lovely dinner at Wil’s Tropical Grill. I ate sparingly as I wanted dessert. After my calamari salad I had a lovely coconut panna cotta. Maggie had key lime mousse and Kate had the chocolate tray.
