Bonaire

Another beautiful day in the Caribbean! It was 80 degrees and partly cloudy with a light wind when we docked in Bonaire at noon. We could see the salt mines, which is where most sea salt comes from, as we were coming into port. After lunch we went into the city and did some shopping and looked around. Very clean town and the locals are mostly Dutch. There were vendors set up in the square selling local items. The Donkey Sanctuary had a booth as did the local pet shelter and the Society for the Disabled. Looking at the flyers taped to the window in the local Remax agency, we found a 1/1 waterfront condo, fully furnished for $125,000. Might have to come back down and check into it!! Would love to have a place here or in Grenada. I talked to a family that the lady is a paraplegic and they went to a resort that specializes in scuba and snorkeling for the disabled. They raved about it and I was glad to find out this information from them. After about 2 hours we came back on the ship. Laid out at the pool all afternoon. Barry Manilow concert was on the big screen at the pool so I was in heaven! It was the one that was taped in Las Vegas and I was there at the taping. Dinner in the buffet, which we have eaten at every night! The singers and dancers performed a show in one of the smaller lounges called Motor City. It was songs of Motown. Very good show. Since our tour was cancelled today we signed up for one in the morning in Aruba. Stay tuned…..one more port to go!!
