SATURDAY, 8 JUNE:
Eight years after Neal's first trip to Bonaire,
he leaves the heat & humidity of Florida for the heat & humidity
WHERE IZZAT? you ask . . .
Because Bonaire is on ATLANTIC STANDARD TIME,
and Florida is on EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME,
we are on a same day, same time schedule.
At 4:30 a.m., I drive him to Tampa International Airport;
as he thought he wouldn't have internet access in Bonaire,
I didn't take a leave-taking pic, but he was wearing his
"Lucky Parrot" hat, as per usual.
The journey itself was uneventful; however, upon arrival at
BUDDY DIVE RESORT,
he was told that "a group from Tennessee likes to fly Delta.
Well, they got from Tennessee to Atlanta and they were on the
only flight today from Atlanta to Bonaire.
The aircraft had a dead battery and couldn't start.
"So they're staying overnight in Atlanta and flying in sometime tomorrow."
Dinner with Andrea & Dave Schneebeck . . .
Neal; Sally Boynton . . .
Sunset . . .
We're supposed to have two boat dives a day;
a total of 12 dives over the five/six days. There are supposed to be
a couple of night dives; however, if there are not enough people to fill a boat,
or if the weather is bad, then there won't be a night dive.
Two dives a day is not too strenuous;
on some of the liveaboards, we were doing five dives a day.
