I use an Olympuss Stylus point and shoot with YS-55 strobe.
Need macro here and wide angle, but out of 375 shots, I shall keep
(and be happy to show) around 100.

Comments  
The good: Had been to Bonaire before so we were confident that we would
have time.
The bad: Euro's that needed to tell me how bad my country is.
General diving was good, but the only large fish, over ten pounds, was a
very large Cubrea Snapper. Most days had an average vis of 60', but as the
week went on the vis did suffer a bit. Bonaire is the easiset diving we (my
wife Michele and I) have ever done and one does get spoiled fast. Best
dinner: It Rains Fishes/Best Happy Hour: City Cafe/ Best Shore Dive:
Brenton Beach/Best Boat Dive: South Bay
Would we return ? yes. Would we stay at Divi again? Maybe
Would we take the red-eye from Houston to arrive early, complete our
orientation, complete three dives, down a Brighty with a lite dinner and
crash by 7:00pm, yep.
