FINALLY!!!! (This stuff always takes longer than I ever think it will . . . )

Days in the shooting!!! Weeks in the writing and tweaking!!!! But now available for public consumption.

See horses of the sea, fish that are frogs, and the famous Molting Crab of Bonaire:

Then read about flesh-craving mosquitoes, epic floods, tasty lasagna . . . and some diving too:

nice report Ken, thanks for taking the time to write it up. I was in Bonaire last September and really enjoyed it. We didn't stay at Buddy's but did use them to dive Salt Pier which was a great night dive.

Great pics and TR! The frogfish and molting crab were incredible. Heading to Buddy Dive in 11 days for our second visit there and third to the island. Stoked is an understatement.

We love Cactus Blue as well. Hagen has taken good care of us as well.

Enjoyed the well written report, you covered everything in there. The molting arrow crab pics held my interest. How long before the shell hardens?
