FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE



more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.


1. This week started with a wonderful sunshine from 6 am til 4.30 pm, the night arrives very quickly here at the Red Sea in Egypt. When I wake up in the morning I can see the blue sea and blue sky from my bed. This itself already boosts my moral which had been heavily damaged lately. I had the feeling to walk on a cliff, just ready to fall into a deep hole.



The view I have from my bed

2. It's just wonderful to lay the whole day on the beach, watching people and swim in the blue warm water surrounded by little striped fishes who look like little zebras.


3.

There are lots of activities for young and old, organized by an animation team, like acqua gym, Volley ball, Petanque (the french game with metal balls) etc and kids have fun too they build pyramides and sandcastles so I have a lot of work to observe all the people and see what is going on.



This young woman tried to find new clients for her beauty salon and was doing anti stress massages on the beach. I could hear the young man purring like an old cat ! I have booked for 4 times and had already two, they really do it very well and it costs not even the half of what I pay at home.

4. We already tried 3 of the 4 restaurants which are all very good. There is one we go to for breakfast, it is directly located on the beach. Another one has "normal" food, a big choice on a buffet and there is also one which only serves oriental food, in which of course we are going every evening ! Just delicious. They have Egyptian, Morrocan, Libanese etc food. We enjoy very much the oriental atmosphere in there.

5.

Each evening there is a show, sketches or theater performed by the animation team which is very good. Yesterday evening a little 6 year old English boy danced as Michael Jackson. It was too cute ! He did the moon walk amongst other typical Michael Jackson dancing steps and danced on Billy Jean. I have filmed him because it was so special to see this little man on stage. Unfortunately it takes too long to download and show you I have to do it when I am home. He was there with his parents just as guests ! When they asked him "what is your name" he said "Jackson" !





and another show

Fortunately I have still more than a week to spend here !

I live on a Lake and a short walk to the ocean with lots of sunny days but still your holiday is making me very envious. That is a beautiful view from your bed. I'm sure this holiday will cure you if you have been feeling a bit down.
I love your people watching reports.

That view is so lovely from your room. I went back through your other posts about your trip in Egypt and it was so interesting to read about your adventures so far. Hope you continue to have a relaxing, enjoyable time.

Wow! Those pics are great and I am more than a little jealous as I sit here in the middle of Kansas!! Thanks for sharing.

Loree said...

Have a great time chillaxing. The view from your window is heavenly.

A Lady's Life said...

Well this should certainly lift your spirits Gattina.Especially the sea.
How are the stars there at night? Are they as close to you as I think they are?
In Kuwait they seemed close enough to touch.
I love the ocean and the seas.
I was always a gypsy at heart, liked to be on the move.
So much to see and enjoy.:)

Laura said...

Glad you have so much work to do, Gattina! I love Moroccan and Lebanese food and the Oriental restaurant sounds awesome. What lovely shows you're seeing. Litte Jackson is so cute. I wonder, have you seen any cats yet? Have a great day. Hugs and blessings, Jo

What a view to wake up with - why can't we have that NOW? (lol)

We need the sunlight.... *sigh*

But it's almost like torture watching it right now with minus degrees and snow outside my window and not knowing how my winter is going to be....
