Sharm el Sheikh

Saw our hotel, the Red Sea, Gordons Reef


Our view every morning

Read when a crocodile eats the sun, I am the messenger, getting the girl

Jetty to the coral reef at our hotel

Ate Italian, Chinese, Indian, Egyptian, Mexican

Watched sun setting over Tiran island & the Red Sea every evening, children playing by the pool, our tans develop, one day test matches on tv while we got dressed for dinner, other hotel guests ~Mr B and I imagined up some quite elaborate and glamourous lives for some of them, sparrows picking up crumbs under the breakfast tables, geckos

Sunset over Tiran Island

Listened deep slow breaths through my snorkel pipe, waves, live music every night, spraying of hawaiian tropic, slapping of flip flops round the pool

Did swimming with a reef shark, a little photography, yoga every morning and not much else.

Heavenly.
