Bonaire Day 7

After passing on the night dive the previous night we set out on a shore dive that is an old favorite - Salt Pier.  The dive again did not disappoint in the least bit.  After a tough swim against the current to the first cluster of pillars we were rewarded with a thick cluster of sea life.  The tarpon were there as was a giant black grouper.  There was a friendly little turtle that swam with us for 10 minutes or so.  The view of the sun shining down through the pillars of the pier with so many fish in the water is spectacular.  This is my favorite dive on Bonaire.

For lunch we made the drive up to Rincon to visit the Rose Inn - home of the coldiest beer on the island.  The goat stew was terrific again as was the side of red beans and rice.  We spent the remainder of the afternoon around the pool at the DBV. 

Soon enough it was time to head out on Menno's boat for the sunset rum punch cruise.  I tried to go slow but ended up sucking down 5 glasses of rum and punch.

BBQ night at the DBV is always my favorite dinner of the trip and this one was no different.  Esther's spread of salads are over the top delicious.  We had some tasty grilled fish and chicken sate.  Lots of good conversation around the table from the guests and our gracious hosts.  I went to bed full and plenty boozed up. 

We flew back early this morning.  Another great week at the Deep Blue View.  This week seemed to fly by in the blink of an eye.
