We Four in Egypt

Now back in the US!

Pharoah’s Island

Here’s part 2 of our Eid vacation, from two weeks ago.

On Sunday, we took an early afternoon trip to Pharaoh’s Island, comprised almost entirely of a large castle built amongst and over the rocks. The castle has been used by the Crusaders, Salah al Din, Israelis, and Egyptians. Among others, I suppose.

The day was really hot, and we did a lot of sitting around and waiting. Waiting for the rest of the group to arrive. Waiting for the ferry to come back from the island. Waiting for the rest of the group to arrive again.

Despite all the non-activity of it all, we had a neat time. The castle, though re-built (obviously) since the time of the Crusaders, was pretty cool. And the boys enjoyed it too.

We climbed around a lot of steps.
