Sharm el Sheikh

Here we are in Egypt - taking a short welcome break from the wintry weather in England.

This is the view looking back to the beach from the jetty out over the coral where it is easy to go snorkelling.

Here we are in the Indian Restaurant, which is within the Hotel grounds, celebrating Suri's birthday with a complimentary cake from the Chef - a nice touch.

Here I am relaxing by the Blue Hole, which is near Dahab, about an hours drive up the coast from Sharm, where I did a bit of snorkelling, here I saw some beautiful amazing coloured fish and coral.
The Blue hole is the sheer drop at the edge of the coral down to a submarine pothole (a kind of cave), apparently around 130m deep.

When in Egypt what better way to travel than by Camel.

Here Suri is enduring a very uncomfortable ride which lasted for about 20 minutes - far too long but good fun a must do when in Egypt.

The entrance to the reception area of the Hotel Hauza Beach. I have written a report on the Hotel at Tripadviser - check it out - see link on right.

Suri escapes the sun under the Bedouin tent whilst out in the desert on the Sinai. To get there we had a great Jeep ride.

Santa can be found wherever you travel these days here he is on his camel in the centre of Narma Bay, just a stones throw from the beach. I guess he needs this sort of transportation in the desert.

We saw many Whirling Dervish Dancers but this chap was very good - possibly the best, here he is performing for us at the Hauza Beach Hotel as we drink and eat our evening meal under the moonlit sky.

Suri as usual joins in with the Belly Dancing to strut her stuff. I think we saw three different acts whilst we were there.

Here I am the intrepid traveller crossing the rope bridge over the swimming pools, how I did it only I will know.

One of our nights out was to Fantasia in the centre of Sharm where we had a Moroccan style dinner this was a cuscus based meal. Here we are with our fellow guests and holiday makers in the rather sumptious though the meal was rushed and the venue a little OTT .

We took a trip on the Yellow Submarine to see the tropical fish and coral around Old Sharm. An experience not to be missed.

Suri poses outside on the quay in front of the Yellow Submarine.
