Bonaire

First off, let me state for the record that I'm not shirking my vacation to get online.  My flight is less than 24 hours away, and trip rules say no diving within 24 hours of flight time.

Bonaire is wonderful!  I got in 26 dives between last Saturday and today, and saw an amazing variety of corals, sponges, and fish-life.  I saw a huge green moray eel, a couple of sea turtles, a half dozen sea horses (including one juvenile), frog fish, scorpion fish, tarpon (including one named Charlie who likes night divers and will encourage them to help him hunt by shining their lights on smaller fish).

I've had a great time here, and plan on returning next year sometime.  The diving is great, free nitrox means more dives with less exhaustion.  Out of over 80 dive sites on the island, I think I've hit about 15-20 of them, so there's plenty more new sites for future visits.

Alas, no pictures from me.  When other people from the group post theirs, I'll try to link.
