Red Sea is host to 1200 species of fish and then there’s the animals like turtles, sharks , dolphins and dugongs. Such a beautiful world below the surface.
the stone fish has got to be the ugliest one ( and it’s also dangerous)
and the guitar fish has the cutest snout of them all

we had a wonderful stroll along the corniche last night. seems like everybody comes down here at night to walk, play, eat or just chat.

Today I had a taxi driver who drove me along the long corniche , the old one and the new one which I learned opened up in nov. last year. It’s beautifully done. Coastal road, recreation areas as walkways, gyms. Mosques, play parks for kids, large scale civic sculptures, loads of cafe’s and restaurants and of course hotels. The Jeddah corniche is 30 km long ! and I learned that Jeddah has a nick name – Bride of the Red Sea.
Interesting little tour…I was invited to breakfast with the fishermen !, learned a little arabic from the driver who didn’t know much english, smelled the ocean and felt the winds from it which is always nice.
