Mountains near Mt. Sinai
Today we were up at 6:30 breakfast at 7:09, on the bus by 8:00. We were going to see a few sites we missed near out hotel last night. We saw the grave of Aaron, Moses helper, and a stone in the mountain that looks like the golden calf (Exodus 31).
It took 4 hours to get to Shatm El Sheik. We got to ride in a glass bottom boat and see the 2nd oldest corral reef (oldest is in Australia), plus we saw many varieties of fish. One thing we all agreed upon... The Red Sea is beautiful. We couldn't believe the colors of blue. It seemed so unreal. Pictures cannot show what we saw.
After lunch we checked into our hotel on the Red Sea. We couldn't wait to relax by the pool or sea, stick out toes in the water, or look for shells and rocks.
Following dinner we enjoyed the late night air for a short time. We knew we had a long day ahead of us a it was nine hours to Cairo!
