I am just finishing up 10 days in Jordan, traveling with James of Nomadic Notes and having gone to many of the most important attractions. Jordan is way more than just Petra (that’s not really surprising), and after this extended tour, I’m not sure where to begin blogging. The nights in the desert? The Crusader castles? Roman ruins? The Dead Sea? The Moses-related sites? How about our furthest point south? The Red Sea.
I went scuba diving with SeaStar Water Sports, a Red Sea dive shop just 10 minutes south of Aqaba. A great time! I’ll blog about that too. But for now, let’s do Travel Photo of the Week from a wreck dive just a stone’s throw from shore. Under the shelter of part of the ship we came across a half dozen lionfish with their beautiful (and poisonous!) “plumage” drifting slowly in and out of a huge cloud of tiny fish.
I have a short video clip of that as well which I will post when I get a faster internet connection.
