Today was a “day off” for Mark; Fridays and Saturdays are a non-work days here. So we explored (on foot) from our hotel to the public beach, 4.6 miles. We even managed to look at one apartment for rent. We saw the Central Market, or Souk, and had a lovely snack. Emily had a lemon & honey crepe with a chocolate-coffee drink; I had a Turkish coffee and Mark had Moroccan tea.
We walked to the public beach along the Cornishe, as observers, not swimmers. It was breezy and chilly, so we sat along the boardwalk and looked out onto the water. It’s very lovely and on warmer days we’ll be there playing in and out of the water.
Hawaii was our most recent island paradise and now Abu Dhabi promises to be a close second.
