So, we decided to return to Bonaire (slowly motoring) to arrive by morning light when I could tender into the marina and try once again to see if they had room for us. We had been told they were full for Carnival weekend so it seemed hopeless. Amazingly enough we did secure a spot for two nights and later that day the harbor-master came over to say we could stay as long as we wanted.
Having to give up on Los Roques and Cocos Island, we decided to take advantage of a nice marina and stay over the upcoming holiday weekend. Rest and fun for us until we leave on Monday for Panama.
