Fog over Mt. Sinai Harbor

No, it's not Bonaire, of course.
This is the north shore of Long Island, winter. It was a warm afternoon until the fog rolled in...it came fast and everything disappeared!
We took a few photos, most of which looked like nothing but a gray wall. Then, just as quickly, the fog lifted and was gone.
This is the harbor by Cedar Beach.

(If you're not familiar with the Google Map, you can click around the page, zoom in and out...see where Mt. Sinai is on Long Island.)

The big splash...on Bonaire's windward shore. Very powerful and very large waves hit the iron shore. Eventually large chunks of rock break away. It is actually scary to stand near the edge and noisy too!

A navigational marker from the past...to guide the ships to shore for salt pickup.

Pink Beach, Bonaire...The yellow stone is a marker for divers. All dive sites on Bonaire are named and marked, and numbered on a map. The island is very "diver friendly."

The lighthouse, Bonaire...Yes, that is a truck and the lighthouse is hugh!

Chris swimming to the edge of the Hilma Hooker. This is about 60 ft. down and the boat goes down to about 120ft. We'll stop at about 90! It gets scary in the deep and wrecks have a certain eery quality about them.

Dive Masters at work...They team up for two dives. Each takes a turn as captain and dive master. Both help with getting people back on the boat and removing the gear. This is Leaticia and Scott from Bonaire Dive and Adventure.

Home Again...

Dear Family and Friends,
We arrived home, safe and sound, from a beautiful scuba diving vacation.
Thanks for stopping by to visit this site to see the photos from Bonaire.
We love Bonaire for its natural beauty and its lack of commercialism. It certainly is not a typical "tourist" destination and its lack of crowds makes it ideal for us.
I will continue to post photos of Bonaire until I have exhausted our files. Chris and I together have taken over 2,000 photos!!!!
I promise not to post too many but enough so you can see the many sides of this beautiful caribbean island in the Netherlands Antilles.
