On June 10th, I took Boogs to his first ever sleep away camp - Band Camp at Texas State University.
While Boogs was at camp, my husband went to Canada for his 30th high school reunion. I actually had the house to myself for 2.5 days. It was too quiet. I picked Boogs up from camp, then my husband came home two days later. On Monday June 18th, I dropped Boogs off in Waco to spend a couple of nights with the JBoys. He came home for one day before we dropped him off at my parents house while my husband and I went to Chicago for four days.
Boogs had morning Soccer Camp the Week of June 25th through the 29th. After we picked him up from soccer camp at noon on Friday the 29th, we drove to Houston so we could catch an early morning flight to Bonaire on June 30th.
Bonaire. Bonaire is a municipality of the Netherlands. It is located about 50 miles off the coast of South America near Venezuela. It is considered to be a diver's paradise as the island is fringed by coral reefs. The entire island coast is protected as a National Marine Park. The Park starts at the high water mark on land and extends to 200 ft of water depth. You have to pay a conservation fee to swim/dive in the water.
We stayed at the Port Bonaire Condos in the capital city of Kralendijk. The view from our balcony was as good as advertised.
Our first full day on the island was a little sad. We woke up to an absolute downpour. It rained and sprinkled most of the day. One of the locals told us it had not rained in 4 months.
