Our first stop in Egypt was Sharm Elsheikh, which was a small touristy town, and we went on an excursion to see Unesco World Heritage site where the desert meets the Red Sea. Our drive took us around the desert for an hour or two, seeing stone landforms, and then a massive split where an earthquake split open the earth in the 1960's. Iain was fascinated and wanted to go diving in the 40 metre deep cavern filled with ocean water! The Red Sea is blue, clear, and beautiful, by the way!
Eventually our tour ended beside the sea, and we swam in the underwater world of one of the best coral reefs on the planet. It was beautiful but I'm afraid I can't show you any photos, since Iain accidentally lost his new camera in the depths of the ocean! (That's his 2nd camera in a major body of water, right Elaine?)
