So I didn’t realize my son-in-law had taken pictures at the little private beach we found.
He had an even closer picture of me floating aimlessly in the sea; another of me and my daughter sitting on the beach, and one of me playing with the grand-kids in the water. Have you ever seen any water so clear and blue in your life???????
On the final day of the trip, we visited Cleopatra’s Bath. It is a rock in the sea about 50 yards from the shore and can be reached by motor boats, sail boats and by wading out on foot. Its clear waters surrounded by rocks give the impression of a vast, square pool in which, according to the legend, Cleopatra came to bathe with Mark Anthony. Ruins of one of her palaces were uncovered on the hillside opposite the pool and it seems that a subterranean passage lead from the “villa” to the beach.
After this brief visit to Cleopatra’s Beach, we were back on the road for the 6-hour ride back home. It was an absolutely wonderful experience.
Next road trip is at the end of Ramadan – stay tuned!
