  1. Does depth matter? …… Days 9, 10, & 11

    Leslie came out of the bedroom of the condo, unit C7 at Sanddollar. She carried my Aga face mask. Smiling, I could tell she fought hard to contain herself, on the verge of laughter.

  2. You can gladly pay later for a burger today….. Days 7 & 8

    “That will be forty-five dollars, please,” she said

    Lunch for three. Not a bad price. Especially on Bonaire.

  3. Problems, problems, problems..... and Dolphins!...... Days 5 & 6

    “Well,” I said, “that’s it for me.” I had just opened the tank valve and looked at my non-functioning tank pressure gauge which read zero, at best. In essence, I didn’t really know what it read. I...

    T-Shirts ...... Days 3 & 4

    We stood in the shallows at Tori’s Reef. Leslie (Double L) loosened the straps on her mask and slid it off her face, taking care not to snag her hair.

    Wide-eyed, she looked at me, barely able to...

    Extra Cheese ........ Days 1 & 2

    “Extra cheese, please,” Leslie (Double L) said.

    Francisco smiled and made a note on his order pad. “Sure, no problem.”

    Thank You Mother Nature ..... Day 12

    “You want one?” Les asked from the other side of the truck bed. She held up an unopened Amstel Bright, condensation running down the side of the bottle onto her fingers. We had just finished a dive...

    No More Shorty Tan ...... Days 11 & 12

    We’ve done some stupendous dives on Bonaire. Over the years, probably 850 or so. All of them sensory overload and memorable in their own way.

    But the dive we did at Pink Beach the other day stands...

    Double L To The Rescue ..... Day 9

    I took off my full face mask and said to Leslie, “Nice job.”

    It's A Big Ocean ....... Day 3

    I laughed so hard my mask nearly flooded. And when you’re diving with a full face mask, that’s a lot of laughing.
