red sea diving aqaba

Off the yellow camel and into the Red Sea – oh my!

Stumbled across this image while cleaning up in the archives this morning. It’s been a couple of years since being invited to Jordan to experience the amazing stone city of Petra, float in the Dead Sea and go diving in the Red Sea – near Aqaba – just across from Egypt where the Arab Spring was underway and a few miles north of border to Saudi Arabia.

While walking towards the beach before the descending into the depths of the Red Sea, this majestic camel and his/her owner just showed up and so, a few of us grasped the opportunity. I mean, how often do you get to have your photo taken with a camel while in full diving gear? More images from Jordan here.
