Friendly little parrot. He likes peanuts!
Simply Wondrous! Today on the beach. A surprise nest. Little Darlings.
We finally did it. We sold our home in the US. Gave away or sold all of our worldly goods there. Not even a storage unit for a footprint. We brought a few of our favorite things so Bonaire is truly home now. Navigating Ex Pat life.
It’s all over the news these days. Recent research indicates that chemical sunscreens harm the reefs.
Our wonderful Island of Bonaire is very eco-conscious. The Island Council unanimously approved a motion to ban sunscreen products contains Oxybenzone and Octinoxate.
This Stream2Sea sunscreen is a local favorite and can be purchased at most dive shops. Or come prepared and purchase online here: Stream2sea!
So, this was a blast to tag along with friends, Lynne and Koen on their IDC to PADI OWSI. So happy my tour was in the rear-view mirror. The IDC is stressful. Again, led by extraordinary Staff instructor Ann-Marie and fabulous Course Director Chris! Great Adventures Bonaire. Congratulations! Cheers!
Pretty little Lora’s sure do make a racket when they want to. Squawk, squawk, squawk!
Grandson Eric and Dani plus their very fun friends, Meghan and Ryan from Missouri.
What a great time. Got some diving in too! Hurry back.
The rest of the story. So after this happened, Becoming a Divemaster on the other side of 60!
I went on to earn PADI AI (Assistant Instructor) with Staff Instructor, Ann-Marie and then OWSI (Open Water Scuba Instructor) with Course Director Chris Ball from “Great Adventures” dive shop here on Bonaire. These are the finest instructors and human beings on the planet. I am forever grateful for yet another life-enriching experience. Cheers ladies! Could not have done it without you! Dive theory!
