We animals are getting hungry. So, let’s go to Dubai’s marina for lunch.
Remember, Dubai is a little short on coastline, so this marina was built, with canals offering more water front property. The menu at Salsa’s Restaurant appeals to us.
After ordering, we admire the view from our table.
Our food is here. This is great.
The french fries are delicious and plentiful. Look, we each received two sliders, or smaller hamburgers. But they really aren’t very small. So much food. We appreciate the umbrella over our table, as it once again begins to drizzle. In Dubai, we are in awe of the many skyscrapers, and the new, innovative architecture. We believe the twisted buildings withstand higher winds without damage.
Driving to the beach we hope to get a good view of what some say is the most luxurious hotel in the world, Burj Al Arab. Here we are, but the fog and drizzle are still obstructing the view. Through the haze, we admire Burj Al Arab.
But wait, hey mom, I think she wants me. Yep, that young girl wanted me.
Now I feel sad that she is sad. Mom puts me back in my traveling bag. This hotel is designed from the sail of dhow ships, formerly the main boat in the Persian Gulf. After the design was accepted, an island needed to be built, as a ship does not sail on land. And more coastline was created. We love beaches, so another photo of Dubai’s beach.
Riding these vehicles on the sand is so much fun.
But today the weather is not great for beach activities. Mom seems fascinated by this building with windows resembling a staircase.
Dubai certainly shows so many new ideas. We love this city.
Very modern architecture after the traditional buildings in Oman.
It seemed they built everything bigger and more modern. Really an experience to see what they did with the desert.
