"Also we better hurry" i say glancing up at the sky, "looks like it’s gonna rain"
My brother takes hold of the bigger tent and goes on to setting it up, while my sister and I pick the other one, pull it out and stand there looking at it.
"I have no idea how to set this up!!" I say looking at the tangled mess.
After what seemed hours of struggling, we finally made what seemed to resemble a blob.
“K, so wanna head to the beach for a while?" my sister asks
We head over the sand dunes and to the most spectacular view. Best of all we had the whole beach to ourselves.
I took a chair, plopped it into the sand and extended my feet into the icy cold water.
We sat there with lightning and thunder in the background, trying to calculate how far off it was.
Now that I think about it, it was probably a not so good idea being wet holding metal fishing poles with lightning in the sky, despite the attractiveness of the combination.
When it started to rain we decided to get back to the tent before we got seriously wet ( only reason was, I didn't want to break my record of not taking showers for the longest time possible...i kid, i promise)
The thunderstorm was like a faucet that would not shut off, best of all one of our tents was not waterproof, so all of us were stuck in the other tent. We called it family bonding time and we did what any other Egyptian family would have done. Played cards!
As we fell asleep, my mom asked from her corner of the tent, “Did anyone actually check the weather?"
Ah small details, they get me every time.
