Salt Spray Damage

The trees and bushes along the West shore got burned by salt spray when the wind reversed as Ivan passed North of us. If you look closely, you'll see that there are apparently a few types of bushes that don't mind the salt.

Riding along the tourist road was like riding through a tunnel of autumn leaves. Don't forget that you can click on these pictures to see them bigger.

The views along the road are still arresting, but in a different sort of way.

Fortunately, the waves must not have been too extreme, because there is still a lot of coral in the shallow waters that didn't get washed away. These pictures show some of the areas that we snorkeled in while cousin Bud was here during the summer.Posted by Hello

We've see the trees get burned like this in the past. Most of them bounce back after a while. The vegetation here on Bonaire is incredibly hearty.
