A Khor is a wadi (dry river bed) that has been flooded by the sea.  There are many of these along the North part of the Sudanese Red Sea coast.  Some extend two or three miles into the desert and form great natural harbours.  So here we are snug at anchor in Khor El Marob in sixty feet of blue salt water, surrounded by sand and barren hills with a few flat topped stunted trees.  Northern Sudan is a pretty tough place and we are feeling lucky to be visitors rather than residents. 
Jill and Robert have had great sucess fishing in the last couple of days and landed three very tasty mackerel.  The meat is white and they are much less rich than the British mackerel.  Lovely!
