Today started slow–I think we are all exhausted!–and that was okay. We lazed around, listening to music (my children mock my taste in music, but tough beans. If I’m the one cooking, I’m the one choosing the music). French toast is fast becoming our staple breakfast–it tastes good to everyone, and it’s easy to make with just a few ingredients. Yum and I had a mini-dance session out on the balcony (our favorite dancing song “Shut Up and Dance” came on), and we danced in the morning sunshine, looking over the Gulf of Aqaba.
Today we chose to go to the aquarium–the Underwater Observatory Park–and it was excellent. Well worth the price, although lunch was pretty expensive (as you might expect at such a place). Although we were only there less than six hours, we were pretty beat. The hot weather really saps your energy!
After a siesta, we attempted to find a beach open in the evening hours, and struck out. We really don’t do anything fast, including getting our swim gear on, and it got dark earlier than we had planned. So that’s on tomorrow morning’s agenda.
The rest of this post is just going to be a photo dump–I’m still so tired!
