We went down for a 2nd trip to Bonaire this year. This time we ended up staying mostly in Bari Reef and taking it very slow.
I went down to Bonaire with a new (used) digital camera (Canon SD700-IS) and was testing it out. As it turned out my strobe just wouldn't work with it consistently and I ended up taking all the pictures with just the built in flash.
