During my four passages through the Suez Canal in 2006, I always remembered this palm. Standing there alone reminds me of what maybe some of the locals feel. As I was passing it, it reminded me of looking at a photo when you walk by and the eyes were watching me the entire time. The water looked like it was a foot deep and I could just jump off the ship and walk to shore in 5 steps. If there was a second palm, I would build a hammock.
