Bon Tarde from the Dutch Caribbean

We had some nice rain this week in the south of Bonaire. A bit further north, my friends reported nothing at all. Spotty showers are so frustrating for most locals as we do need a good rain storm. 

Everyone on Bonaire seems to be posting about Hurricane Danny which is a bit curious since it’s over 600km away and we are outside the hurricane belt. One can hope for some wind (for the windsurfers and kiters) and rain (for all).  I hope Danny brings much needed respite from the dry conditions to my neighbors to the East. Be safe all and be prepared.

Recently, it appears Sargassum has come ashore on Lac Bay. The piles are growing and the Sea Turtle Conservation is on hand to rescue the baby turtles stuck on shore in the mess. 7 babies were rescued the other day, so I am told.  The vigilance of this nature oriented community is outstanding and appreciated. 

My gardener brought me a bunch of Guineps since the Lora’s ate my crop. The iguna’s are fighting me constantly and are winning. I have lost so many trees thanks to these creatures.  It’s been a rough season with the drought.

Pasa bon dushi wikent, tur hende

Have a great weekend, everyone

Bon Siman from Bonaire

Light winds prevail and blue skies are above. It’s a gorgeous day in the Dutch Caribbean. I was snorkeling yesterday and enjoyed great visibility. 

We need rain! The drought has parched the landscape and the dust is horrendous. On occasion, a sprinkle passes but nothing since July 21.

Bonaire’s heating up. Winds are lightening up substantially.  The Wounded Warriors arrive soon, a much anticipated event.  

Did anyone take any fantastic photos of the meteor showers? It was cloudy her Wed. night so I did not go meteor hunting. I live near the airport to the night sky is bright. Last night, I spied a few.


I have taken in two foster furkids, seeking a forever home for them on Bonaire.  Take a peak and share with a friend.

Bon Tarde from Bonaire

The weather is funny today; cloudy and grey and super moist.  We have had a few sprinkles but are all holding our breaths, waiting for something substantial. One can hope. 

I took a mini stay-cation here on Bonaire. Check out my blog for a nice hotel review and food updates

Greetings from the Dutch Caribbean

Since the 19th and 20th of July, we have had little rain. The winds are still cranking much to the delight of the windsurf crew. 4.5 meter sails prevail. Kitesurfers down south have been on 10 meter sails. I am on a stay cation at the Bellafonte Luxury Oceanfront Hotel. Thanks to Sara and staff for hosting a much needed two night respite.  Take a peak at my review:


Preparing for high season, inspecting properties and revamping my website soon. Stay posted on www.bonairecaribbean.com for updates.

- Hurray for rain
  • From: Ann Phelan <ann at bonairecaribbean.com>

Around 11 o'clock this morning, the skies became  very dark and thunder was 
hurt in the distance. Suddenly the skies opened up and heavy rains and wind 
descended upon  Belnem. Shortly after the rain started, I read on a Facebook 
page that someone commented they had not seen so much rain and thunder in many 
many years. I think perhaps some other parts of the island got more because I 
wasn't too impressed with what descended upon our corner of the island however, 
rain is rain and it's all good

Bon Dia from the Dutch Caribbean

Aside from a bit of rain, drought conditions prevail. The entire landscape is parched. Many of my plants have died, despite diligent watering. 

I am working on a styrofoam free initiative on Bonaire. Take a peak



Off to mediate!
