Look up Ron Wyatt’s account of the Red Sea crossing….Michael Rood subsequently put out dvd concurring with and documenting his findings and more!
Moses and the children went through the Sinai Peninsula and crossed at a land bridge in Nuewiba over into Midia or what is now Saudi Arabia.
The land bridge was built by sediments washing from the periodic rain fall over the centuries prior to the exodus. You can see where the modern Egyptians have built a causeway to divert the water and rubble so as to prevent the town from being washed away. I have been there and the residents say that if a sand storm arises you can not pass (in either direction) the entrance to the town at the point where the mountains open… you can see all this from google earth. Read the account in Exodus everything is answered with this explanation.
