Apparently, due to major dredging operations at the Suez Canal, they no longer give out time slots…. As a result we hung around today at anchor waiting for an opportunity to Transit. Finally, around 3:30, we began the transit. It was a shame it was so late in the day, I always love photographing the scenery along the way. I was able to catch a bit of the canal before sunset which was nice…. We will have a slow day at sea tomorrow as we await our arrival in Ashdod, Israel….
