Welcome to The Parrot Nest - The Retirement Edition — Life on the Rock.

We are now into the summer months and getting settled into routines here on the Dutch Caribbean island of Bonaire.

WAIT — who am I kidding, there is no routine. We do what we want to do, when we want to do it. A lot of daylight hours are spent under the surface of the water and I'll be working on a new section of the page here dedicated to SeaLife very soon.

Above the surface, we are exploring the shops, the business, an d many of the restaurants of the island. We enjoy our evenings sipping cold beverages, watching the occasional plane land, and the local iguanas climbing the trees and getting into their nighttime positions.

Yes, FLExit happened and while we love our friends, our family, and our neighbors still in the US, given the status of daily events there, we couldn't have picked a better time to become ExPats or a betting place to call home.
