Been a quiet week with little to write home about. Fridays really do seem to follow each other at an amazing rate. They go quicker than real holidays. Speaking of which I am on leave in 5 weeks. Hope the Fridays fly by...If only the real holidays would slow down...
Today was a lazy one. Late breakfast and another walk along the beach. Interesting how quickly the weather is changing and along with it the surrounding. 6 weeks ago when I arrived in Ruwais it was cold in evening through to mid morning. Not any more. Now its 16'ish at night rising to 31 Deg C in the midday sun. And its still January... A lot more heat to follow.
The walk was fine, clear blue skies. I took a few shots of some shrub land. Not much else as the beach vistas I did last walk. The sand is dry, all signs of the rains of the last few weeks have disappeared. So only the most hardy of plants can survive such an environment. Came across one particular plant. Resembles a red cactus. Strange thing growing in bunches. Not so many of them around. They might be something that got prompted to grow as a result of the earlier rains. You know, they flourish for a few days and die down again till the next seasons rains come round.
Clearly we were not the only visitors this morning. Someone had been along with a mountain bike and also there were foot prints where some birds had been walking along.
