children at heart,
life near and on the beach in alexandria egypt
Lifes a beach in Alexandria egypt
here I am 200 yards from the beach,
and I am taking a respite from my travels for a few days, just to relax and do a bit of swimming and sunbathing,
there are more crows here than people as the summer season for the Egyptians finished 2 weeks ago the birds are left to clear up anything edible in the mass of garbage left on this paradise beach,
once one has waded through all the rubbish on the beach and got to the waters edge of the Mediterranean sea with its clear aqua water and white sandy beaches, its quite pleasant and one can dream of being on a clean beach on some distant Island,
my pal Klaus having a day dream, he is becoming quite a beach boy.
Another dream of a net full of fish
one man and his dog does not make any difference if the dog has a drop on the beach to add to the bottles babies disposable nappies etc
Peach coloured Hibiscus, another colour to my collection on another one of my blogs
lots of jelly fish washed up on the beach ,plenty of dogs roaming on the beach
and crows everyhere there was rubbish
shrimpers casting their nets out
lots of these on the beach, what look like balls of fibre;
plenty of cans on the beach
just outside of the apartment block there is more wildlife
wildlife even inside the apartment.for those with arachnophobia switch off now,
and bird no 78 I have photos of,
I have seen a few more that have eluded the camera. one being the the white-breasted kingfisher,
Klaus saw one on the sea breakers while swimming late this afternoon. I was asleep on the beach, drat;-
plenty of shells on the beach I was hoping to find one big enough to adorn one of my shelves in luxor.
floats and balls of what seem to be gauze these are all along the beach .
this was more of a walk than what I thought but I did see a bit of wildlife
plus lots of gas pipes,
a yellow spider better photos on this link
a ruddy darter
here in Egypt some men make mosques in the sand as a boy I made sand castles'
and two on the beach teasers
its nothing rude,
all that work catching a fish then finding and cleaning a bag to put it in and he leaves it on the beach,
i waited half an hour for him to come back for it.
before deciding to pick it up ,
sundown and the end of the day on the beach.
once back in the flat I gutted the fish descaled it and cooked it for my diner Klaus did not want any because of the smell from the guts I opened by mistake while cutting ;a foul smell filled the apartment..
I very much enjoyed the fish with brown bread .
I way overdid the walking yesterday I got up at six made a cup of tea then went back to bed a rose for the day at 1030, and today all I need do is get a decent photo of the yellow spider,WHAT A HARD LIFE I HAVE!!!
