No compressed air on dock to dry equipment.  Rinse tank on boat tended to
be smaller and was right out in sun.  No one briefed non photographers
about dry table so they became a collection point for sunscreen, used
drinking classes, snacks.  Lots of subjects to shoot.

LBR far exceeded our expectations for a Caribbean dive resort.  The cottage
was always spotless when we returned from our morning dives.  The AC worked
and the screens were intact.  One nice touch in our cottage was the
built-in work bench/table.  Perfect for working on gear, cameras, storage
space.  The food was good and plentiful.  We particularly enjoyed the
dishes prepared with fresh fish and the lobster bar-b-que on the beach. 
The diving was also good!  Walls, a wreck, shallow reefs, the drop-off dive
in front of the resort, swimming with dolphins, and of course the whale
sharks!  There are so many dive sites around the island that we were able
to dive "sheltered" sites every day regardless of the weather. 
The best part of the diving was the crew and service.  From the time we
arrived until we left we never had to touch any of our gear except to hang
up our wetsuits.  The crew and captain worked very hard changing tanks,
organizing the gear, end-of-day rinsing, and stowing the gear.  The dive
guides also did a good job pointing things out on the dives; although in my
opinion, several of them got carried away with the tank bangers.  One thing
I wished for was dockside compressed air to dry camera housings after
rinsing.  We also enjoyed the sea kayaks when we had the energy.  An
unexpected surprise was the fishing from the pier.  We had an absolute
blast hooking, but never catching, tarpon at night. Romy & Luciano (the
managers) made it known that if you wanted anything, all you had to do was
ask.  We have never been to or don't know of any other place where you get
so much value for so little money.
