16th of February 2023 - Return to Aqaba

In the morning Ruth and I transferred from the ship to our hotel in Aqaba.  We had to wait for our room for over an hour due to the hotel mislaying our booking.  They did express their apologies with some complementary fruit and little cakes.

In the afternoon we went down to the mail pool and jacuzzi for some serious relaxation including a very nice lunch in the beach bar.

The lunch was very filling so Ruth and I decided to go down to the bar and share some potato skins for supper over a glass or two of wine.

Our room deal includes free canapes in the bar in the early evening.  This is the hotel's idea of canapes.  We had a platter of "canapes" each and sadly had to leave most of it.

One sad footnote is that we met Peter and Hilary during the ship to hotel transfer after days of hearing they weren't around because Peter was ill.  It transpired that they were taken off the ship at Hurghada with Covid and were only able to return some days later.
