We're back home again after a weekend of sun and fun. It hit 104 F (42 C) one day but the wind was strong enough that it kept things bearable. We went boating, swimming in the Red Sea complete with coral reefs (little ones, we didn't go to the main coral beach since the kids are still much too young to snorkel) and their associated fish, spent lots of time around the hotel pool (and jacuzzi - Maya's favorite part) and even made it back to the Underwater Observatory. The outside observation pools and Red Sea aquarium are usually my favorite haunts, but this year the actual "in ocean" underwater observatory was a real star. I've never seen so many fish in the open water before, there were even two large school of tiny little fish whipping this way and that. Maya particularly loved the Red Sea tanks (that's my girl) but overall the turtle eggs were their clear favorite again this year, no contest.
I'm whipped today. I spent the whole day racing around (oh my poor aching feet) on just four hours of sleep so I'm just going to shut up now and let the photos speak for themselves. It's not like I'm writing anything wildly coherent anyway... Oh, and happy Father's Day to all celebrating.
