We had lunch at an oasis, palm trees everywhere but not a lot of water. Then it was back on the road to our campsite at Ras Mohammed, a national park on the tip of the Sinai Peninsula. We camped out right on the beach with dessert on one side and coral reef just off the beach
Day 5 - Woke up early enough to catch a spectacular sunrise this morning. We went snorkelling at another spot in the park in a deep bay. The coral was spectacular but there were a few stingers on the way back in. Mandy and I were both stung on the way back in.
More swimming and snorkelling after lunch until it was time to catch our ferry across the Red Sea to the port city of Hurghada. Walked down the road from our new hotel for dinner and found a cool restaurant called Café del Mar. Nice pizza's.
Day 6 - Lazy Day.....oh yeah. No plans, nothing to do, beach 100 mtrs down the road, pool downstairs, lunch back at Café del Mar (where they offer free wifi internet if you have your own laptop, and where we are updating this blog right now) and what ever else we feel like doing. We have seen and done some amazing things on this tour and we have squeezed a lot in so far so a day of cruising is just what we need. We leave on the last leg of our Egyptian tour to Luxor tomorrow and the Valley of the Kings.
