Every day on the Cruise My Cabin Attendant would make the most wonderful Towel Displays. I thought this one fit quite well with today's theme.
Before I moved to Alaska, I never spent much time on boats at all. Now it seems everywhere I go, no matter where in the World, I end up on a boat. Here we are taking a small boat out to the Temple of Phalae, Dedicated to the goddess Isis in Aswan.
The Temple is on a garden like island as you saw in previous posts. Just Beautiful, and only about 100 degrees in the shade.....
So What is it like cruising the Nile? (Above is our Boat the M/S Neptune, Really nice, refurbished last year and though not as large as some of others, a great boat)
As you cruise up and down the Nile on the way to the Next Temple or Dock you see scenes that have remained unchanged from the time of the Pharaoh's.......
And some of the most Beautiful sunsets around.
Ibis birds clustering together for feeding
The Corn looks pretty good!
The spires of Mosques, satellite dishes, and electrical wires are the only changes to the timeless landscapes you see.
There is something that reminded me of Unalaska, Fog forming on the Nile as the all too hot sun retreated once again for the night.
Yup, just having High Tea, relaxing and enjoying the timeless beauty of the Nile.
Of Course the Desert has it's own charm
The End of the Green and Beginning of the Desert
But it was nice to finally get to Fort Arabesque after the 5 hour drive through the Desert.
How can you not just sit back and relax and enjoy this wonderful place?
So, Now that I am sufficently warmed up from these warm memories it's time to get to work on Laundry, cleaning the Apartment and cooking a nice big meal.
Have a Great Sunday Everyone!
