Locally, Eid al Adha, is a religious festive period, so dad does not have to work, the kids have no school and well also the sewing machine needed a break.
Ideal timing for a two day excursion to Musandam, also called the Northern Omani Peninsula.
We embarked on a dhow, an old wooden boat.
We went boating through the Musandam fjords – once and a while the captain got some assistance.
We saw dolphins.
We collected coral – meanwhile our garden is decorated all over with coral.
We slept – by means of precautionary measure we slept in a tent, as one of the kids is a sleepwalker.
We sang, shouted, and ran.
We acted tough.
We spotted ‘authentic’ rock-carvings – camels that were gouged out centuries ago.
And we gained plenty of solar energy, so we are ready to face daily life.
