Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside . . .

 

It's October and it's cooling down . . . . still hot though - just about hot enough to still use hot water from the outside pipes, but the mercury is no longer in the 40's.    It's still a liDSC00432ttle uncomfortable to be in direct sunlight for too long in the daytime, but we decided to brave it with some friends of ours and hit the beach!

 

I do like the beach, but sometimes traipsing down to the shore with all my paraphernalia can be a bit irritating . . . and as you can see from the photo's  - there's a lot of stuff! 

However, we have found a piece of land in between the summer palaces in Jumeirah that has not yet been built on, and we can drive straight onto the sand - put the car in 4x4 mode to drive across the 100 metres or so of beach - and open the car right next to the shore!  We did forget that the tide was coming in though, so we had to keep moving the car!!!

The best bit about it?  It's OCTOBER!!!!!

And this is one of the reasons we moved to Dubai!

A few days ago it snowed here - the first time it's snowed in October since 1938!
