Woo hoo! What a Friday!

My off days are as usual as it always been. As posted here, after doing some of my errands last Friday,
I took a shower when a loud knocking in my main door interrupted.
It was my flatmate who persuaded me and my other flatmates for an afternoon trip to a city 60 miles away from our vicinity. I have never been there.
Though initially undecided, I move on grabbed a sweater, and an old boot cut jeans seem like its waiting an age to come forth out of my wardrobe.
And we drove between cities to see the park at its beautiful best and be able to explore a part of this country, get on with it and enjoy.
Over the course of our journey, I took most of the photographs by rolling down the window of the car.
It was an afternoon filled with fun and memories.

So chilly but I can't say no to one of my indulgence - soft drinks.
A selection of dates.
At the market to buy some fresh fish.
Local Arab men.
The city existed for its bustling downtown populated by expatriates.
The trip is fun with something to munch, and it is extra special if it is Doritos.
I can smell the breezy blue ocean.
At the park.
It is more romantic bringing a nice blanket and own dishes, head to the shore with your beau  halfway through
the winter. Locals definitely do.
A park beside the beach is a popular destination for locals.
Some expats taking photographs.
A kid enjoying a bike ride.
I watched the sun as it slips below the horizon.
And here's my crazy exercise, building castles in the air.
I'm wearing my black Abaya , a must.
