Back in September I made my second visit to Bonaire. Bonaire is a Special Province of the Netherlands, located 30 miles north of Venezuela. As a SCUBA diver, it is the number one shore diving destination in the world. This time, my friend and I stayed at an the all inclusive, 4 star, Van der Valk Plaza Beach Resort Bonaire. It is situated right by the airport - I highly recommend it! This was my first time staying at a resort where the majority of those around me were not American. I loved every second of it! I made some friends who will absolutely last a lifetime. With that said, here are 8 shots to make up my first set. All photos were shot with my Nikon D7100 & Nikkor 16-80 f/2.8-4 VR, with PP in Lightroom and Photoshop.

As a note: Hurricane Irma was churning just a few hundred miles north of us during our visit.

1) Bonaire is famous for, among other things, salt! This is part of the salt pier:
