Re: Windy Bonaire

I have seen a "break down" of what were reliable prevailing conditions in the NE/LIS area. Sure you get storms and anomalies... but the base conditions returned. I've observed that those base conditions no long apply. Lots of days with very light to no wind or strong breezes from the NE, NE and East. SW pattern is hardly a pattern any more.

Damn. The plan was to spend three weeks here in Bonaire to get away from winter not 60 degree F temperatures! I could be working on winter boat projects if I had stayed home. Though I seem to recall from my youth people would often talk about the January thaw. Which apparently was expected at some point to occur. But, like the harbor freezing over in the winter some years it remains ice free some years it is frozen over. Sometimes the thaw happens sometimes not.

Regardless, this is the time of year for stronger than usual winds, and Bonaire is windy most of the time. Just be thankful they are not West winds!

Those east winds still have a way to hit back. While on a mooring pretty close on the lee shore of on the west side of Bonaire I'd observe an occasional larger wave crash into the shore. I was wondering where these waves were coming from. Then I realized the west winds were sending waves crashing in Klein Bonaire the smaller island one half mile west of Bonaire. Some of the wave energy was reflected back towards Bonaire.

Re: Windy Bonaire

Was in the 60s here this past weekend. Short lived though. I guarantee you'll all be better of at your latitude.
