Today we woke up early, got some good seats on the beach -- actually, the seats were on an upper terrace that was built into the cliff next to the beach -- so we were raised up high, with a great view of the bay and nearby desert mountains.

We had breakfast at the buffet, sitting outside next to the pool. Near our table was a "birds table". Similar to a bird house, but without the house. It was really just a table where they placed bread for the birds. Basically, the birds were enjoying the paradise of the resort as much as the people.

After breakfast, we went for a walk around the resort, which is huge. It consists of a many buildings, mostly one storey each, with a few building having 2 or 3 storeys. We walked up the stairs to a second floor terrace to take some photos of the resort and the mountains behind it. From here, you can see a desert plain leading from the resort to the mountains.

We then went tot the beach and more snorkelling in Sharm El Sheik. The snorkelling is so good here, you can't get enough. Some people have said that the Red Sea has some of the best snorkelling and scuba diving of anywhere in the world. It seems like snorkelling in the morning is best, both in terms of visibility and number of fish. We took some more photos of the colorful fish and coral.

We had lunch, relaxed in the sun, and went snorkelling again. We went for a walk along the beach, passing each of the resorts on the bay -- they all seem very nice. We went for a swim at one of the beaches on the other side of the bay, then walked back.

We had dinner at the buffet by the pool -- this time the theme was Egyptian, and the food was very good. We watched the show for a while then went to bed.
