Davy Scheffers, H3111 packs up his gear, throws a few board shorts into a bag and moves to Bonaire for his annual winter pilgrimage. Davy is hard core and holds back for nothing. This photo was taken in the mangroves of pristine Lac Bay. The mangroves are perfect for flat water freestyle practice. It’s serene as well. Most pros head that way to train while others like to blast in the crystal clear blue out front of the shops.

Donkey Bliss Part II

September 18, 2011

Animals make me happy. Bonaire’s lovely donkey’s always make me happy. I have been to the donkey sanctuary many times with visiting guests. It’s an amazing place that nurtures and protects the island’s donkey population. Many donkeys still reside outside the property and the loving folks at the sanctuary care for their health needs as best as they can. Would you consider helping by adopting a donkey? Contact the Donkey Sanctuary to learn more.

When on island, pick up as much bread as you can (I usually get 10 loaves of day old bread in the back at Cultimara Grocery) and head over to the Sanctuary located on the Sorobon Road.
