I was awakened this morning by some pigeons who apparently had a roost above my tent in the Wadi Rum desert camp. Since I was up early, I used my time to pay another visit to the baby camels and to explore the area. After a hearty breakfast, we left for the port city of Aqaba. May 25th was Independence Day in Jordan, and the popular Red Sea resort town was packed with holiday makers. I escaped town by taking a boat ride out to snorkel in the warm waters of the Red Sea. The sights below the waters were amazing, another brilliant display by Mother Nature in Jordan.
