Sunset on the Nile with oar splash
I was so busy photographing the African Queen with her small amount of splash that I did not realise that it was about to collide, sending us into the air whilst those on the other side of the boat went closer to the water. The impact sent Roger’s hat into the water but it was promptly rescued by a boy who had wagged school to sing songs for the tourists in the hope that one will give him some money.
Look closely and you’ll see the boys having fun on the Nile beach splashing each other as children the world over enjoy doing.
The pirates of the Nile hang around the locks and latch onto the sides of the ship. If you make eye contact you will have goods thrown up for you to purchase. Their oars make a splash as do much of the produce as it is returned often landing with a splash in the Nile.
The vessels all have water draining from the back – hitting with a splash. I presume that they circulate water to cool the motors. I refuse to think it is anything else.
Entering the lock the waters churn creating splashes. I worried for the lone pirate but I need not have – he made it safely out the other side.
