This was a great day. Jenny really had a lot of fun!
This past Christmas break we were encouraged by other staff members to make a trip to Musandam (a port just inside Oman) and take in one of the boat tours that depart from there. We discussed this and decided to make it the trip for our holidays (and Ning paid which was great!). It was a very good decision.
We were picked up by van at our apartment in Dubai at 8:00 AM. About halfway to Musandam we stopped at a look out point in the mountains. As you can see we took some great pictures! I had never seen mountains without trees that were so beautiful. We arrived in Musandam around 10:30 AM. We were taken to a boat yard from which we embarked for the water portion of our journey.
The ride was a bit exciting. Ning had a bit of a hard time with the waves. She is not much of a person for boats in the first place. Jenny was all eyes. We saw lots of birds and saw some fantastic shorelines. It was a look into another way of life for us! The initial ride lasted about an hour and half. We arrived at a hidden cove that sheltered from the ocean waves by the mountains. The water was emerald green and very clear. You could see things on the ocean floor despite the fact the water was over ten meters deep!
We were taken ashore by small boat. We went swimming there. The water was nice but not as warm as what we are used to in Thailand. We made some new friends with small schools of fish. They looked like miniature dolphins and they jumped and danced all around us as we stood in awe of them!
After our swim we were treated to an onboard buffet of Western and Arabic foods. It was delicious!
We left for home around 4:30 PM. It was a tiring day full of new things and excitement. The trip left us with lots of things to talk about. It really was our best Christmas present! One we were very thankful for.
