SKYWATCH FRIDAY - FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE - FIVE ON FRIDAY



Sunset seen from my balcony in Hurghada/Egypt



More participants here at



********



This is my last week at the Red Sea in Egypt , the two weeks went by so quickly and Wednesday we return home into the cold ! It will be a big difference from + 28°C to - 1°C !

But meanwhile we enjoy the holidays. Mornings beach, then lunch, then beach then supper and in the evening we are on our tablets or smartphones and chat with other people.




Nicole had her two grandchildren painted and I think it came out very well !



Then we had a strawberry festival, with an orchestra followed by cooks who carried an enormous tray with all kind of things made from strawberries !



Nicole tries the strawberry cake (in the back) it was so good ! Not like our very expensive watery strawberries ! Here at least they had the real taste of strawberries ! Sunshine for them is more then enough !



We were also invited to the VIP party given by the hotel manager for guests who came more than 5 times. It was very nice to see so many faces and say hello to people I have seen since several years. Here we are sitting with a couple from the north of Scotland, I know them already since 3 years. They had also been there last year in November !



and when I came into my room I found this dog (or is it a pig ?) on my bed !!

Sounds like you've had a very relaxing and warm time in Egypt. I love all the strawberries and 28C sounds inviting about now.

Lovely sky shot.

I think the dog/pig has been drinking and is now legless. You have the same problem as us with strawberries. Belgium should import good strawberries from Spain and Portugal, maybe even Italy.

Yours are not holidays I imagine, but it sounds pretty good.

What a lovely vacation! I'd love to try some of the strawberry concoctions. How neat to see some of the same people on vacation every year.

The time seems to have gone quickly and yes it will be cold when you get back. They are very inventive with the towels! I'm going for dog because who wants a pig on their bed? lol

Tamago said...

Everything looks so lovely there! I’d love to come for the strawberry festival!
The dog (pig?) is very cute :-) Enjoy the rest of your stay there!

I would like to wallow in those strawberries.

I thought it was a sheep on your bed. Whatever it is, it's cute. I can't believe you've already been in Egypt for two weeks. Time flies.

It's a tough life, but somebody has to do it! (We are so lucky to be able to enjoy life at an age when too many people are wasting away complaining about getting old.) Adore the beach pictures ... and the strawberries (they are in season here in Florida now too). I think that is a pig on your bed ))

Warm and wonderful is the way I would describe your holiday. I live in the strawberry capital of California--and, yes, sunshine makes all the difference with strawberries.
That VIP dinner sounds like a great bonus.

Oh that view!! 28*C is the temperature I most like. Hot enough but not baking. And those strawberry desserts! I would have had a hard time controlling myself.
