Just another awesome Bonaire sunset....

The last 10 or 15 minutes of most dives in Bonaire are spent under the boat. The slower pace often yields some interesting discoveries, spending time focusing on small critter interaction. This usually shallow part of the dive also serves as a "safety stop" to allow the body to off gas nitrogen.

Lots of technical issues with this shot, still getting the kinks out of the new underwater Canon G9 set-up. The attraction here is that seeing a free swimming Green Moray is extremely rare!
These guys tend to hide in the reef with only their heads visible, they respirate through the mouth showing their menacing needle sharp teeth. It was indeed a thrill to happen upon this guy swimming out in the open. Not the sharpest of underwater images, but a moment worth sharing!(click on the image for a closer look!)

The American Airlines connection from Bonaire to New York involves some rather lengthy layover time in San juan. How better to spend 12 hours in Puerto Rico than in a bed, on a beach just steps from the bar? Something here about getting lemons and making lemonade....
