Hurghada, red sea, Egypt

It had been the last day of our holidays in the Sunrise Holiday Resort in Hurghada at the red sea.
When we came down for breakfast there was a new beautiful flower decoration in the entrance hall.
These flowers everywhere outside and inside I really miss !
This year we also had a very good Internet connection in all rooms and even on the beach, which was very convenient because I could talk to Mr. G. at any time.
At 10 pm each morning the animation team walked around the beach and "woke" us up with laughter and humor !
Every day was the same, chatting, enjoying the sun and also me watching the painters looking like spidermen painting the yellow facade which had faded in the sun into a bright white. We were only interrupted by lunch !
Last week we had the strawberry festival this time it was melons ! The cooks carried the huge tray on the beach and we could all eat at our hearts content. I will show more pictures in another post because it was so very beautiful.
There was a huge choice of food, and cocktails here are some starters and cakes. The main courses were really for everybody's taste no matter from where the guests came. We were mostly English and Germans but also French and Belgians.
Each evening another singer sang female or male and they all had wonderful voices. Some of the guests danced. At 11.30 it was finished not to disturb those who went to bed early as I and Nicole did, because we were so tired from the sun and the fresh air.
And now I am home again. I didn't have the courage yet to empty my suitcase ! What a difference ! Below right my view until yesterday and today ! The cats greeted me and then went to sleep again.
Fortunately Mr. G. had brought us scarfs and bonnets at the airport it was freezing cold ! - 6°C !
Our flight took an hour more due to the wind, but we were lucky that the Brussels' airport was not closed, because people from Scotland were stuck Glasgow airport was closed to heavy snow. I heard from one that they are still there but in another hotel (ours was full) until Saturday !
It will take some effort to go back into the usual daily routine ! For a start our heater in the bathroom has problems ......, we have to pay a supplement of taxes etc etc ! Welcome home !
