Dive Journal: We're up early this morning to catch the dive boat. Not what I had in mind - I'd rather get some beauty sleep myself. Outside it's raining pretty hard, but that doesn't make any difference to our dive plans. The Sand Diver II takes us to the backside of Klein Bonaire and to a dive site known at Munk's Haven. It is located on the western reaches of Klein, and a divemaster named Joao and his girlfriend have accompanied us. Despite the overcast skies and steady rain, we enjoy another excellent dive. Another handsome scorpionfish spreads its pectoral wings for us, to our delight. We also spy several of the (white) spotted morays and then another beautiful goldentail moray. Eels are always an interesting sight to me since they demand a bit of respect and are such unusual looking creatures. Following the dive, we make arrangements with divemaster Joao to escort us on a private night dive at the Town Pier tomorrow night.
