Hamlet Oasis Sale for Coral Spawn 385.00 a WEEK!

June 12, 2009
Hamlet Oasis

Imagine being able to visit Bonaire for 385.00 for a week. This is not a misprint.  Hamlet is fixing their pool so decided to discount the entire property.  Book a studio for two starting at 385.00 USD a week! The one bedroom starts at 455.00 a week. Add 6.50 pp per day tax, service and departure cleaning and it’s still a deal. Hamlet Oasis is next to Dive Friends where I have 6 days air for 114.00 USD pp! Walk to the sea or down the driveway to Habitat Hotel to visit their Deco Bar for a tropical cocktail or enjoy seaside dining at Rum Runners. Listen to Moogie play Monday night at their sumptuous BBQ.

The sale dates are for Aug. 24- Sept. 28, just in time for the Sept. 4 coral spawn.  Email me for the coral spawn schedule. This is a photographer’s dream.

Bonaire is located in the ABC islands outside the hurricane belt. We have not seen a hurricane hit the island in over 80 years. Sept. is the perfect time for divers to experience our over 80 dive sites.

Bonaire Faces

February 10, 2009

Here is a face on Bonaire many of you know. His name is Ralph Stewart but you may know his as Moogie. (face to the far right)  Moogies’ is one of the top musicians on island serenading tourists and locals at several hot spot party zones. Moogie, a resident of the island hails from Florida. Over 17 years back he came to Bonaire and still remains. I met him in 2001 when I was at Habitat at the famous  Monday Night Rum Punch Party. He was singing lively island style music at the oceanfront Deco Bar at Rum Runners. It was a fabulous time. He is an island institution.  Since first meeting we have become friends. We share a love for reading.Moogie can take on a good debate. He is animal lover too. I always look forward to seeing him.  Recently we had a fun time during Xmas with the Koos van Dijk Family, The Stewart Family and my family. Moogie is one of a kind. He plays at Rum Runners Monday Nights 6-8, Wed. 7-9 at Cactus Blue and Thur. at Habitat again at Rum Runners. You may also find Moogie Friday nights at Buddy Dive’s Rum Punch Party. He is at the Divi Hotel on select nights as well. His music is fun and will have you jumping on the dance floor.

Koos, Ray and Moogie
