First full day of our time on board the Silver Whisper


as the sun rises, we start moving through the Suez

we notice the beautiful scenery along the way

we take our place as number 7 in a line of some 35 vessels going one direction

some beautiful resort areas line the 3 lakes included in the journey of the canal

about 1:00 we are notified 7 ships coming the other direction have a higher priority

36 ships at anchor for 6 hours waiting

waiting as ships come from the Re Sea side

many ships waiting from the Red Sea side

anchored to save fuel, in the shallow water, as we all wait

a samll speedboat races towards our ship

oddly close, but no need for my concern, they go by

so, I inspect our ship as we wqait
