As we are preparing for our all night and day excursion to Mount Sinai and St. Catherine’s Monastery, we are spending the day hanging out with Jose and Omar at the beach. We tried to relax and close our eyes while laying under the giant umbrellas, since we knew that we would not be sleeping at all that night.
It was great to catch up with Jose and hear a little more details of their adventures while traveling together.
The sand of the beach was a little different than the one we are used to in the Jacksonville area. There were not that many shells in it and the sand seemed to have a different texture. Can you tell which footprint is Mrs. Menger’s and which one Mrs. Tolisano’s?
The water of the Red Sea is so clear that one can see to the ground, as if there was no water. If you stand real still in order not to cause any water ripples around you, it is like looking through glass. In the bay where the beach was located from the hotel, there were no waves at all. That made taking the camera into the water very easy, since I was not worried about a wave crashing on top of us, which would have broken the camera.
Look at the wonderful colors of the fish that were swimming around a small coral reef in the bay. Aren’t they beautiful?
