SUNDAY, 9 JUNE
Plan today is attend the dive briefing,
Our scheduled dives . . .
. . . plus two check-out dives on the house reef
Sally, Dave & I went to do our check-out dives.
The news was much worse than we thought;
We ate lunch and then the plan was that Sally was going to a dive shop
So that's what we did after first having lunch.
The bird at meals is a usual feature . . .
The sign post inside the resort
. . .
The recommended dive shop
After that, we got lost
We were greeted (sorta) by
I picked up some stroop wafels,
Shelves of Dutch cookies, with stroop wafels circled . . .
Then we got lost coming back
World-renowned underwater photographer Ned Deloach
For example, on our check-out, I saw several splendid soapfish.
The other people were expected sometime around two this afternoon.

My roommates, Dave Olson & Richard Cox, whose flight was delayed
They have been traveling for two days and Richard didn't have
Being the size I am, and he is close to my size,
Because Neal's last two dive trips (Indonesia and The Philippines)
There aren't volcanoes in Bonaire, are there??
Not that I know of, although someone at breakfast was talking about
Tomorrow's plan is for breakfast at 7 a.m.;
THE DIVING BEGINS HERE
