Greetings from Bonaire

 

Why do I dislike the name of the current storm? Hmm..I have a foreboding feeling about this one..stay alert, everyone.

 

Weather in Bonaire remains sunny and nice with some spotty rain that does not amount to much.

 

Dreaming of a return to my fav island, Bermuda. In ’13, I took mom to our favorite property, The Reefs for her 90th and my daughter’s 21st birthdays. I submitted a photo I shot for a contest and I am now a finalist. If you are on Facebook and are so inclined, could you vote for my photo so I have a chance to win? Thanks all..I promise not to try and sell any Girl Scout Cookies or Magazines here!

I am at the airport heading to curaçao for a short getaway and it's pouring 
rain ! Looking towards my house in Belnem, I can see the sun shining brightly. 
So strange!! We desperately need a good shower. Looking east towards the 
Caribbean waiting to see what comes next ! 

Pasa bon dushi dia!

Well, not a drop of rain out of that system that passed. I just read, Aruba had an earthquake. Waiting for a report here, I hope.

- Where's the rain?

Greetings from Bonaire

 

There’s a tropical system looming nearby. Lucky Aruba got the brunt of the precipitation, here, nada! I drove north to Rincon Sunday and saw puddles about but truly, this island is parched. We need rain. My cistern is empty and I am now using government water to irrigate the plants. Winds continue to be strong as a result, dust is everywhere. I haven’t opened my windows in days to keep out the mess. I am leaving out water for the birds and bees and a few buckets for the goats that pass. Praying for rain..

- Winds and Weather and Wonderful Delights

Greetings from the Dutch Caribbean

 

The wicked winds continue making for stellar kitesurfing and windsurfing. My clients are delighted!

 

Our landscape remains parched but we did have a spot of rain Wed.  I worry about the wild donkeys but alas, they have survived many years on this island so I pray they are somehow ok.

The island is packed with holiday goers, mostly from The Netherlands. Speaking of which, flags remain at half mast in respect for the loss of those who perished on the Malaysia Air flight. Such a tragic and profound event.

Off to book some windsurf and Kite packages. Folks are already planning their 2015 holidays!

Bonaire needs rain. The landscape is parched. We have had crazy winds. Bonaire was under code yellow recently. Great for kiters and windsurfers

My windsurf clients are already booking for 2015! Rampages of appreciation for their continued business. When time allows, I will be hiking the “kunuku” this month. It’s nice to be here after my Cape Cod spring!

Greetings from the Dutch Caribbean

 

The winds continue to howl. It’s been the windiest spring I can recall. Also, the Sahara dust is brutal. I won’t even open my windows anymore. We need rain. All is well here on Bonaire. The windsurfers and kitesurfers are happy.
