My bags packed with my travel documents in my hand, it is off to
the hotel. One of thoes early morning flights out of Dullas that
are best attacked by staying at a hotel the night before.

Up before the sun rises and headed to the airport, it looks like a
another rainy day in Virginia. Glad I am headed south.While at the
airport I ran into some friends that were headed my way. That is,
headed to Bonaire for a week of diving.

After one plane change over, and meeting a few more folks from our
diving group we finally made to Bonaire. From the air your could
see the nice blue water. After the plane landed we grabbed up our
bags and loaded onto the resort bus that was waiting on us.

We arrived at Divi Flamingo and received our room assignments.That
afternoon our group met at the resort dive center for our
orientation breefing.

The week was filled with diving, eating, little sunning and
sleeping. The diving started after our breakfast at the hotel. Two
tank boat dive, then a quicklunch and a one tank bout dive. That
could be followed by a shore dive off the dock. I will have to say
there was plenty of fish. The visibilty was good and there was a
lot other life to see besides fish. And the whole perpose of the
trip was for diving and taking pictures. And did I ever take
pictures. At least a few hundred a day. One of these days I will
find some good ones to display.

There are two restaurants on the resort. (Chibi Chibi Restaurant
and Calabas Restaurant) We always met for breakfast and coffee at
the resort dining area, ate our own lunch and went out for dinner.
Except for a couple dinners we ate at the resort. Mexican night
and the free spagetti dinner. (For our Dive Group) And I will say,
thay put on a great meal. Lots to choose from and cooked by the
cheff your way if you choose to go that route. Then there was the
local restaurants just down the road.

The resort has two pools. After the morning dives and the
afternoon dives I would hang out at the pool next to my room.
Fresh water and some sun. Well by Thursday I was hanging out in
the shade and wearing a hat.

The manager of the resort was alway out interacting with the

resort member. Would I go back to the resort? Yes.
