Las Aves to Bonaire

We had a nice and fast sail from Las Aves to Bonaire. The tuna must have been running because we got these beauties and at least two other boats also caught some (though smaller than ours, not that we're competitive or anything).

We satisfied our sushi craving and had a wonderful salad the following night. Mark and Conrad love sushi but draw the line at seared tuna. They enjoyed some hot dogs on the second night.

Tuna salad: seared tuna on greens with tomatoes, beets, hard
boiled eggs, and pine nuts.
Mark and Conrad's Nana and Grandpa have been coming to Bonaire to windsurf and dive for 24 years and running. The last time we were here, Conrad was six months old. Things have changed in the seven years since we were here last, due in large part to the cruise ships that now dock in Kralendijk. There is no anchoring here because the whole area is now a marine park with vibrant, healthy coral. There are about 40 moorings, pretty much all of which have been occupied since we've arrived. We'll be here for about a week or so.
