Our Beautiful Beach, Sniff! Sniff!

If you ever came to visit, we would usually take you to our favourite beach, our heaven on earth, Jebel Ali. Unfortunately, they closed it down to build a massive beach resort. All kitesurfers and winsurfers got also kicked out of Jumeirah beaches which is fair enough really we all know this could be dangerous for families and children.

Now, Jebel Ali was supposed to be a so called "Protected Nature Reserve"."I am not sure if I got my facts right with all the tractors digging here and there. We have to go all the way to the borders of Abu Dhabi which is almost an hour's drive! And I miss my beautiful stretch of sand surrounded by camels on land and by rays and turtles in the water. Sniff! Sniff!
So we are trying to go to a new place every week end. We decided to try Sharjah lagoon and because it is near the main road and because people have never seen a big kite before, someone actually crashed into the big metal garbage bin on the side of the road. It was actually far away from the road. He was staring at the kites in the sky and he forgot to drive so he drifted off the road into the bin, totally smashing his car!! When the police arrived, he actually blamed his crash on us. No one managed to stop laughing. Until now it is the joke of the year! Even the police did noy believe him, they asked Michael when is he going to fly again, they wanted to take a video!

Some people go to Ghantout these days which is further than Jebel Ali and a long way away or just the public beach of Jumeirah...Unfortunately. Want to find great beaches? Go on a long week end for a long drive south of Muscat, Oman, before Salalah, it is fascinating, or even Dibba.
