Day 2 � Marsa Alam

The next morning we had a walk around the resort. We saw the beach, the beauty & sauna complex with a fitnesshall, the pool, the diving school, the 3 different restaurants, The bar and some little shops near the entrance hall. We also went to the reception to get some information about excursions. We signed up for a snorkling trip to the Sharm el Lolli national park. There were a lot of people at the pool but there was almost nobody at the beach! That was so convenient for us. It was still early so not that hot and there were no other people at the snorkling area.

We went back to our room to change into our swimwear and get our snorklingstuff. We walked along the coastline where we saw a ton of small crabs. There were some big ones aswell but they were a little bit further away on the rocks. We picked a spot at the beach to put our stuff down and went into the water. The water had a great temperature and was very clear. At first I thought it was pretty scary and I didnt dare to go to the parts wich were more deep. I really like underwater life. I love animals in general but I really have a thing for water animals. I think they are so beautiful but very scary at the same time. I like them, I just dont want to get too close to them! Thats why I was a little scared at first. I saw the most amazing fish! There was one fish I really liked! It was not very colourful, more like, beige. It was very long and slim like a stick and it was not flexible like an eel or something like that.
Our Balcony
It had 2 small eyes on boths sides of his head and it looked so funny to me. It was really big too and I followed the fish around for a while. Except from lunch we just spent the whole day at the beach. If it wasnt for the snorkling I couldve never done that. I really cant spend a whole day at the beach doing nothing! I can bring a book or try to sleep, but that just doesnt work! I cant do it! But it was different in Egypt I spent a lot of time at the beach there just because of the snorkling and watching the little crabs run around! After a day of snorkling we went back to the room and watched a movie. On the tv in the hotelroom they had a great moviechannel :). After the movie and some sleep we went to the main restaurant for dinner. We walked around the resort some more after that and went to sleep early.
