Here fishy fishy fishy

I had a "massive barracuda steak" for dinner a couple nights ago at one of the restaurants here in Dahab called Ali Baba. It was well cooked (not overdone or dry), and it was quite massive.

But the real point of this post is to say that I went snorkeling the other day in a reef area in Dahab called "Islands". I'm not sure why it's called that. There are no islands there. It's just off the south shore. All the snorkeling spots in Dahab are shore dives. You just walk up to it and jump in to view the reef.

I saw some fish I've never seen before while diving or snorkeling, but it wasn't as nice as I thought it would be. Even Hawaii was better snorkeling.

There's a spot near my hostel/hotel that is called the Lighthouse which supposedly has lionfish, so I am going to try snorkeling there in a couple of days.

Tomorrow I will be doing 2 dives on the Dahab coast. One at the Canyon and the other at Bells/bluehole. I booked it for 40 euros, which is a good deal.

This place is a good location to learn to windsurf so I'm planning on trying that in a couple of days also.

That water activities must be very fun but also risky.
Take a good caution always.
