My GrandPAs Home Town

well, every body loves his home town for sure - and besides he loves some place which he can find warmth and feel safe. For Me, Portsaid is my second home where my grandPAs originally belong to. my grand parents from my father were living there from there birth to the time of the trice attack on 1956 over Egypt when people of port said ( Bur sa'id - as locals call ) forced to immegrate from all the Suez Canal Coast ( Port said, Ismailia, & Suez) To other cities.

They Told us That They Suffered alot from what they faced from the english forces and the bad actions in this time. beside, Port said is concidered the North safing Built for Egypt as Sinai Is The East built.

.... Some Times I had really Boring Time In there As There's no Entertainment Places Like Cairo Or Alex Or Sharm, But Anyway,I love This City.

A Little Brief about Port Said

Port Said is an artificial harbor formed by two concrete breakwaters which extend seaward from the low sandy coast. The old approach channel to the Suez Canal forms the channel to Port Said. The city of Port Said is on the west side of the harbor, and the large suburb of Port Fouard is on the east side. There are a number of basins adjacent to the main channel which contain mooring buoys. The outer basin and Ismail basin provide the deepest draft. Navy vessels typically moor inside the breakwaters. A series of 4 mooring buoys are used to anchor each ship, generally two forward and two aft. There are no pier side berths available to navy ships and there is no designated fleet landing.

There are two large anchorage areas northwest of the entrance to the Suez Canal and Port Said. They are fully exposed to open seas wind and waves. Daylight navigation into Port Said is recommended. The approach zones typically hold a large number of anchored vessels awaiting passage through the canal, the low coastline provides poor radar return and currents near the seaward end of the breakwaters tend to be quite variable. Ships are advised to stay to the windward side of the channel and should not stop in the outer channel. Pilotage is compulsory. Pilots board at the seaward end of the breakwater
