    Default Wrecked fishing ship in Egypt


    Old fishing ship that was wrecked on a coral reef in southern Egypt.
    The wreck is located about 3 km from the resort Holiday Beach in Marsa Alam. The ship left a few decades ago, in my estimation. Today it is home to sea birds, whose droppings covering the entire deck. Life on the ship, when he served, had to be hard. Small cabin, minimum space, all subordinate work.
    On the beach near the wreck today is sweating a military base guarding one-eyed Bedouin. Even he does not remember how long the ship is here.

    Aside from the image size, a bit of an interesting and different report!

    Yep very slow, but a good report none the less. And a unique chance to zoom right in on some of them for some good detail. If only our Broadband speeds were fast enough to cope....

    All apologies, I shrunk pictures. Next time I'll be better to read the rules. Once again, sorry.

    Can you also please observe the advice on the number of photographs posted. A large number of varied images is fine but not when they are this repetitive. I'm sorry to be so bl8unt but the forum guide lines do make this plain.

    If you intend to post a large number of images it is also forum etiquette to put something like "IMAGE INTENSIVE" in the title. Don't forget, some subscribers to our forum are on limited data packages and won't thank you for having to use up a huge amount of their monthly allowance only to find repetition and outsized photos.
