Exodus 16 : 25 On Saturday, Moses told the people, “Today is the Sabbath, the special day of rest to honor the Lord. So none of you should be out in the fields. Eat the food you gathered yesterday.26 You should gather the food for six days. But the seventh day of the week is a day of rest—so there will not be any of the special food on the ground.” 27 On Saturday, some of the people went out to gather some of the food, but they could not find any.28 Then the Lord said to Moses, “How long will you people refuse to obey my commands and teachings? 29 Look, the Lord has made the Sabbath a day of rest for you. So on Friday he will give you enough food for two days. Then, on the Sabbath, each of you should sit down and relax. Stay where you are.”30 So the people rested on the Sabbath. 31 The people called the special food “manna.” It was like small white coriander seeds and tasted like thin cakes made with honey.32 Moses told the people what the Lord said: “Save a basket of this food for your descendants. Then they can see the food that I gave to you in the desert when I took you out of Egypt.”
Numbers 11:4 The foreigners who had joined the Israelites began wanting other things to eat. Soon all the Israelites began complaining again. The people said, “We want to eat meat!5 We remember the fish we ate in Egypt. That fish cost us nothing. We also had good vegetables like cucumbers, melons, chives, onions, and garlic.6 But now we have lost our strength. We never eat anything—only this manna!”7 (The manna was like small coriander seeds, and it looked like sap from a tree.8 The people gathered the manna. Then they used rocks to crush it and cooked it in a pot. Or they ground it into flour and made thin cakes with it. The cakes tasted like sweet cakes cooked with olive oil.9 The manna fell on the ground each night when the ground became wet with dew.)

One has to glance at any map to see the complete lack of relevance the Red sea has to the entire narrative of Exodus. The Hebrew term Yamsup signifies Reed sea. ” New Catholic Encyclopedia Vol-5 page-745
