Summer Sunshine at Last...

...unfortunately I had to travel 2500 miles to find some. Anyway, I'm back from my holidays and was looking forward to visiting the allotment to see how much everything had grown in my 2 week absence. Unfortunately, it hadn't really (except for the weeds) as the weather has been so dismal. Today is too wet to even venture up there, never mind do anything. So, I thought I would add my holiday pictures instead.

Our camp for the evening in the Sinai desert.

The View from our Bedouin tent.
Red Sea coral reef.

My transport for our evening stay in the desert!

The intrepid explorers set off on their hot and dusty trek!

Ethan enjoyed the trip on the Red Sea.

Lots of pretty flowers in the hotel grounds, this little pink flower was my favourite.

The Bedouins demonstrated how they make bread - it was very nice!
The Sinai Mountains.

I have a thing for taking pictures of textures and repeating patterns - therefore I loved this palm-tree trunk!

The Red Sea with Tiran Island in the background, the water was shallow enough to walk out among the reefs for a good 45 minutes, it was also toasty warm.

Colourful rag rugs in the Bedouin tent.
Dusk in the Sinai Desert.

This was the view from the door of our hotel room, it was lovely watching the sunset over the mountains each evening. The view from our balcony (which I neglected to take) was over the pool and down to the Red Sea, with Tiran Island and Saudi Arabia in the distance.

Shadows at sunset.

There were a couple of trees at the Bedouin camp. The colours and shadows at sunset were fantastic.
