Bonaire Update & Aruba

We had a wonderful anniversary last night.  The ship was having some sort of barbecue shin-dig for dinner by the pool deck.  Jan and I wanted to have a romantic dinner so we ate ashore at a place called Salsa.  It was wonderful!  Had a bottle of a good South African wine and a meal of fish soup, gamba’s (a kind of shrimp I think) and a curry dish for two with Wahoo, beef, and other stuff I don’t remember.  Topped off with Death by Chocolate.  This will probably be remembered as one of our best anniversary meals ever.

Today we are in Aruba after a rough night at sea.  Lots of wind, waves and rain but, luckily, neither Jan nor I had problems with it, other than being awakened by waves crashing against the porthole.  This morning we took an excursion on a small submarine down to 130 feet depth.  Saw glorious fish and coral.  Jan and a new friend then went shopping – something available in abundance in Oranjestad.

We hear about the bad weather hack in the states.  We don’t think our being in a warm place is in any way the cause of the storms.

Next – two days at sea heading towards Panama.
