Hi All,

My wife and I are about to make our second trip. She snorkels but does not dive, so I'm hoping to find some partners. We're staying in Belnem and I will have a car or pickup. If you are in town and open to some company, please drop me a line.

thanks!
Tony

Hey Tony, what flight are you coming in on? Be happy to hook up with you for some diving...

We'll be at Paradise Moon restaurant Sunday evening at 6:30 - just ask Carl or Pam (owners) where Bill & Donna are...

Hi Ron and Diane...

How are you guys! We sure miss seeing you in Bonaire. This is our first trip in two years (economy cancelled us last year). This year we just couldn't make it at our usual time for coral spawning, so we are going to miss you - darn!

Where are you guys staying this time? We're at Coral Paradise and they have worked out really well for us.

Maybe next year we'll catch you.

We know you will have a great trip.

Best regards,

b/d

Hi Bill and Donna, thanks very much for your reply - we're on the early early flight from Houston. 5:30 am - what are they thinking!

Anyway we will look for you Sunday evening. I will reply separately so we can touch base by email.

Hello Phil & Judy, thanks for your reply, I will email you separately. I would very much like to dive Slagbaai. Have you been to those sites before? I've seen cautions about currents (but I am a decent swimmer).

It's been yrs since our last dlves at Slagbaai but I don't remember them being difficult. Once on the island we'll seek advise from knowledgable persons.

We have talked & will see you at IAH Friday evening.

Philip & Judy, SAT

Other report mentioned rain on Sunday, Sept 18 & predicted mosquitos soon. Those of us visiting Sept 24-on might want to bring repellant.
