    Hello everyone. I just joined. I have been diving for 34 years. I have a YouTube channel called A Diver's Life and have been diving all over the world from various parts of the Caribbean, Micronesia, Fiji, Australia, California, the New England East Coast, Nova Scotia, and other cool places. My passion is underwater videography and storytelling. Our latest video is . I hope you and learn a bit about Bonaire history. Bonaire is a dutch island in the southern Caribbean world renowned for its diving and in particular shore diving.
    I look forward to interact with this wonderful dive community.

    Lovely. Nice video. Really like the way you've added the annotations.

    "Luckily the water's cooled to 26 Celsius" :)

    Was so nice to see that in the middle of our continuing lockdown; freezing outside.

    Not freezing. When I last went swimming in the sea (some hours ago) I was told it was 5c. It felt quite cool and I resolved to seek to swim on the less sheltered side, where waters exchange more freely and the temprature is a toasty 8c.

    Is that free swimming (as in swimming not diving)?

    Whilst some are equipped with fins and snorkel, and sometimes a spear, I just do plain surface swimming wearing wetsuit, neoprene hat, gloves, and socks, and with a float in tow. I do see plenty of nutters without proper thermal protection but most of them aren't in for long, and sometimes they look close to hypothermia soon after emerge.

    Which is one of the great benefits of living where you do, so close to the sea that even Plod can't argue.
