Weekend on Failaka Island :)
Opting for spontaneity we decide to pack lightly and hop on to “Om il 5air” for the weekend :)
A little disappointed that the island wasn’t as well-maintained as it could’ve been, nevertheless, there were a number of activities to choose from! We had a look at the Sheikh Abdullah Salem Museum… Fooled around at the pool… And misused the spiral stairs :p
I loved some of the houses :)
We stop for breakfast… brunch… lunch… snacks… & dinner ;) good food!
We head to the beach and choose from the many activities- my favourite was cycling along the shore… We later stop for refreshments at the beach bar.
Back in the room we enjoy the view of the quiet sea …
We swing bythe Baqala to pick up some childhood goodies :D
As the evening approached I set up my telescope to get my first “astronomy lesson” – under the stars- whilst my head was up in the clouds ;)
An evening visit to the Food Village… We drop in on BR and pick us up a couple of flavours! mmmmm…
Late-night golf :)
Embracing our culture :)
I want our boys to look like this again :( little men… not whatever freak-show/ dorky-look they crave nowadays!
Concerned about the language in some of those posters … ;)
Could NOT get enough of that sky & sea!
More snacks from the ferry’s bar & our own private jet-skis show keep us entertained on the ride back home …
