Travel Tuesday - Mini Adventures in the Carribean!

Hi-dee-ho everyone, Dory here,  welcome to another 
Travel Tuesday!!!
This week we are going to start a series (two, possibly three, Tuesdays) of
Mama, Daddy and the Mini's Caribbean Vacation to Bonaire!!

This is one of those trips I was happy to stay home for!
 Just look how far away it is on the map!!

Well....guess what, it took Mini Dory (and the rest of the minis) and my peeps even longer to get there!! 
Why don't you tell them about the journey, Mini Dory???

Thanks Big Dory!! Let me tell you, this was a long and tiring journey...thank goodness the peeps had me to escort them!! 

First,  it was a 5 hour drive from our house to the San Francisco airport...

Hey Mama and Daddy, stop being so silly...
Don't make me stop this car!!!

Sheesh...You would think they could sit still in peace and quiet for a few hours and let a Mini concentrate on the road!!!

Once we arrived at the airport we hopped on a plane and I flew 87 hours alllllllll the way across the country to Mama's home state of New Jersey!! 

It was OMD late/early (3AM EST) when we finally got 

Thank goodness I had made a reservation at a hotel where we could rest and take a shower!!

Bright, and WAY TOO EARLY, the next morning I woke the peeps up and hustled them to the airport where I flew them another 87 hours to Bonaire!!! I hustled and bustled, got the luggage and made sure we got to our hotel where I unpacked the boyz....

...and then I headed out for a well deserved Pina Colada and Cheezy-burger!!
Unfortunately, after all that travel, I fell asleep and when I woke up....Mama and Daddy were

I got Arty, Bilbo and Jakey looking for them right away! Meanwhile,  I had another Pina Colada and collected my thoughts!

Arty questioned the locals.
Be careful Arty!!

Bilbo questioned the hotel staff.....

...and Jakey talked to the Underwater Policecrustaceans
before we finally got a lead on where they may have gone.....

Stay tuned next week and see where we finally find our

Love the towel elephant! Having traveled the long journey from Germany to Minnesota, I agree, it was a better choice for you to stay home. Thankfully, my mom is not into traveling, so she rarely leaves us behind. She traveled around the world most of her life and is just tired of it. Your mini me's got some good times in, though and it appears your parents had fun too!

That made me smile so much! What a great holiday with the mini tribe - if I'd known they were going to have so much fun I would have mailed myself to America instead, LOL.
What a beautiful place, it must have been wonderful. LOVE all the photos!
