For a long time Anna and I had wanted to scuba dive in Bonaire. It is an island in the Leeward Antilles in the Caribbean Sea. Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao form the ABC islands, 50 miles off the coast of Venezuela. Bonaire is a special municipality within the country of the Netherlands.
The reefs, beaches and on-island reserves located on both Bonaire and Klein Bonaire are under the protection of the Bonaire National Marine Park. Because it's a marine park (no large ships and no fishing permitted) the waters are crystal clear; perfect for scuba diving. The water temperature was 83 degrees F.
Anna took many spectacular, underwater photos of fish:
Burr fish (we saw it but Anna didn't have her camera (bummer):
We ate very well:
The resort, Buddy Dive, was beautiful:
Drinks at the beach:
My favorite was available for breakfast: chocolate sprinkles ("chocolade hagelslach").
