Eilat-Snorkelling In The Red Sea

February 1990

Eilat is supposed to have some of the best snorkelling in the world off its shores. So even though I had never done it before I decided to have a go at snorkelling. I did not know  quite what I was supposed to do.

Still I tried. What I saw was amazing. I was surrounded by coral reef and large, beautiful multi-coloured fish. It was absolutely breath-taking, (in more ways than one), as I was so absorbed, that when both my mask and snorkel had filled with water, I didn’t notice and then suddenly realised that I couldn’t breathe. I also cut my legs rather badly on the coral.
