Greetings from Bonaire! Bon Bini...

Hello Everyone! J and I arrived on the redeye this morning and landed safely in Bonaire around 5:00 a.m. It took a grand total of 15 minutes to clear customs and get our luggage and then another 2 hours to get our rental car. As you might not realize the pace in Bonaire runs a little slower than glacial, but it's all good - I'll adjust. Welcome to the islands!

After a quick breakfast, we headed to our dive briefing and soon after, our first dive. We had been given a tip and somewhat of a shady guarantee that "just offshore, you can find 3 seahorses". Imagine my excitement, I was so sure that we would easily find at least one of them. Wrong! Apparently directions like swim straight out for 70 meters and in about 7 meters of water, you will find a large fan coral and somewhere around that fan coral, you will find a yellow and a red seahorse.

Turns out, even though I'm Canadian, I don't know shit about the effin metric system - I don't actually know what 70 meters is and since there is math involved, I lost interest in figuring it out about 5 minutes into my dive. AND since we are diving in the ocean, there are A LOT of fan coral in the vicinity of the mythical seahorses. I might as well of been looking for a needle in a haystack or a unicorn in Central Park, because the seahorse safari was a FAIL and the guy that sent me off on a wild goose chase is an ass! There's apparently a sucker born every minute and today, I was it...
