Our family took a trip to the beach last week. We were in an area called Fuka (pronounced Foo-ka, you potty-mouths!) which is located on the Northern shores of
Egypt on the Meditteranean Sea about 185 miles west of Alexandria and about 5 hours east of the Libyan border. It's basically in the desert but on the beach.
The kids LOVED playing in the water and got to catch WHITE lizards and one big
green chameleon (it changed to brown and then to green again.) They also played with their cousin's turtle and caught dragonflies and a hermit crab and I caught a
praying mantis. It was definitely an earth-science kind of week.
The kids' Uncle Fawzy caught a ton of fish (okay not an actual ton but about 25 beautiful big fish, 6 rays and 4 little very bony fish called Denise.) We ate very well
that week and played hard. Only got some minor sunburns this time thanks to SPF 65
sunscreen and Mommy's vehemence about not allowing ANY of her kids to go down
to the water until after 4pm. We got home late Saturday night and have been recuperating ever since. Home sweet home.
And pardon my "newbie-ness" I'll get the swing of this blogspot thing soon enough
and perhaps be able to upload more than one photo at a time.....
