I’m back, we had a great time in Egypt. The hotel was good, food plentiful and weather hot. Got a bit of scuba diving in and also some amazing snorkelling. We were REALLY lucky, one day things didnt go as smoothly as they might have done and a dive trip got cancelled at last minute. We’d got up at about 7am to go on it as well but the car taking the air tanks to the boat broke down. We werent going to let that spoil things so spent day by pool and did same thing the next day. Now thing is the next day a pod of dolphoins swam past boat – we just slipped over the side and snorkelled above about 40 of them! Got some amazing underwater photos and video. My wife took a photo and there are that many dolphins in it and so close that it looks like its blurred! Its not, just an amazing photo. If we had dived on intended day we wouldnt have seen them.
A brilliant holiday. When I was gambling I would only have dreamt of a holiday like that and would have thought I needed to win a jackpot to have it – in fact all I had to do was STOP gambling.
My mum is visiting this week so will be pretty busy, then its back to work for college enrollment next week. Life is good.
