Ras Abu Galum

I went today to Ras Abu Galum, about 1h30 north of the Blue Hole which is supposedly a national park. It is mainly a beduin village with a few concrete houses to accommodate for tourists but there is no electricity in the area, it is very peaceful and quiet place.

I went for all day with Marco and Maher as well as a trio of cool Irish girls. We did some snorkeling and once again I shot some striking pictures of Lion Fishes.
A duo of dolphins came close to our place swimming slowly at the surface, we did not have time to jump in the water to salute them as they were just passing by. Maybe next time.
