Last week we took a trip out to the Emirates Marine Environment Group. What a fabulous trip. I've never seen the girls so relaxed and happy. They had a ball and so did we. There was lots to learn and see. Wonderful place.

Unfortunately I forgot to recharge my camera battery before I left. I'd hoped to at least be able to get a few shots off before it died. I guess that I should be grateful for the one solitary shot I did get. It hardly does the place justice but here it is.

desert days

Two of us ventured out into the depths of the desert the other day with a group of local girls. Okay, it wasn't the depths of the desert, it was just a ten minute trip from Al Ain, but who knew that they were hiding a lake out there. With Jebel Hafeet as the backdrop, it was very pretty.

I loved the colours; the orange of the sand, the blue of the sky and the lake, the green of the bushes and the reeds and the contrast with the black abayas and shailas.

Check the sky.
Three girls go strolling.
Jebel Hafeet makes a lovely backdrop.
