12°10′ N 68°17′ W – Why I Love this Place – Part 1

June 30, 2011

Why do I love Bonaire? I moved there for the windsurfing scene. The expansive tranquil bay is my zen spot. I am one with nature on the sea. With my board and the wind, I can fly across the top of the water like a water nymph. I feel the breeze in my face and the warm Caribbean sun on my face..often I am alone for a dawn patrol sail in the summer months….it’s my bliss…this is one reason I love Bonaire!
