Unexpected Company

We had often heard an osprey in the neighborhood, and then noticed him/her up on one of the shoreside rooftops.   I guess after nearly 90 days in one place, we began to look like a landmark, because suddenly we had a visit.


... OH SH*T ...

... I am outa here!


What does one do in Bonaire when time is running out?   Dive as much as possible, of course.   Barb and I had a couple of additional chances to try our hand at underwater photography:  first Kim and Steve (Northern Star) each let us try out their two cameras, and then Sharon (KoKomo Kat) let us each try her two cameras.   Here are a few of the least-bad efforts:
