It’s a Beautiful Day

27 41 N, 33 48 E

At the Entrance to the Gulf of Suez

It’s 6:00 a.m., and the sun is just coming up over cloud-shrouded mountains on the Sinai Peninsula.

That’s right, clouds! Can you believe it?! We haven’t seen those in many months. Not rain just yet, but it’s a sign of things to come.

The winds are quiet too, another rarity, and we’re making a bolt north, to see if we can clear the Red Sea once and for all. If the forecast holds, we’ll make the entrance of the Suez Canal by tomorrow, finally slipping the Red Sea’s tenacious grip.

We’ve drafted a note telling about our time in Egypt, and we’ll post that soon.

The sunrise is beautiful.
