OK, I must confess I work as a photographer at the Sacramento Bee. But they needed a travel story, and my wife and I were happy to supply one from our recent trip to Bonaire. My wife did a great job writing the story which should resonate with anyone who has ever been to Bonaire. And although the photos are not prize-winners, I am proud of them nevertheless. So, please take a look at the story here:

Super article and photos. I just got back from Bonaire...what a blast. Oh, your anemone shrimp is a "spotted cleaner shrimp"... sorry just got some new books and couldn't help myself! :)

Great read and loads of nice photos. I am looking at Bonaire for next year and images like yours make me want to go now.

Nice article and great shots :blink:

Entrance to the Slaagbai National Park is included in the cost of the marine diver's tag. You need some photo ID.
Strangely we find eating out almost cheaper than buying from the supermarkets.

Hi Bentoni
My wife and I have been to Bonaire many times and we still haven't been able to dive every sight, there are so many of them. Great article and photos!

Nice work. I really like the shot of the blooming flowers. Great collection and it shows the various aspects of Bonaire. Looking forward to heading back again later this year.

Cheers

Great images. I think they should've printed a few more of them in the article.
