So wonderful to ride through and see the pink water, and the glorious flamingos. Well worth the ride--and bring binoculars, as the birds are skitterish, and the area is a nature sanctuary.

This was one of the stops on my Bonaire tour. It is a beautiful lake, however, the history behind the area is deplorable. slaves were brought there to mine the salt flats and they were treated horribly. I did learn that the lake is pink due to the salt rich bacteria there.
