A trip to the sea

Phyllis, Arthur, Juan, and Jamie took a Superjet bus to Port Said to check out a potential partner.
Our first outing was a walk to the beach near sunset. It was windy and cool after a long hot bus ride.

Here's Phyllis enjoying the Mediterranean Sea. The water is nice and warm.

We came on the first day of Ramadan so there were all kinds of decorations and lights all over the city. The fasting started at 5:00 am on Thursday and gets broken at sunset each evening for the month of Ramadan. The lights and decorations are new to us, as they weren't put up in Atbara when we were there for Ramadan many years ago. 

We walked along the walkway beside the Suez Canal after the beach. You can see Port Fouad across the water.
