Suez Canal 3x

I had to post photos of the Suez Canal. I transitted through it three times by ship. Took this shot from the ship of this memorial built in recognition of the defense of the Suez Canal from 1914-1918.


These Marines stand guard during the passage of the Suez Canal. They originated out of Rota Spain where they hitched a ride with us to the Persian Gulf and to the port of Al Jubail in Eastern Saudi Arabia.
