Last evening on the pier table at Sebastian’s Restaurant, Austin and Lorrie Headland were honored by Rolando Marin, of the Tourism Corporation Bonaire, for their dedicated annual visits to Bonaire.
The couple has been visiting Bonaire each year for over 21 years, and in some years, visited twice. They hail from Alabama in the United States, and even though they habitually travel to other dive locations, they admit that Bonaire is the destination that they continue to return to year after year.
Both Austin and Lorrie are divers, and underwater photographers as well. Although they do spend long hours underwater (many dives reach almost two hours in length), they also enjoy just kicking back and enjoying the island. Over the years, they have made many friends on Bonaire.
Chef Sebastian himself placed their honorary gold medals when they were dining at his restaurant.
Congratulations, Austin and Lorrie, and continue to visit for many more years! (Source: Bonaire Insider Reporter)
