One Sunny Afternoon At The Creek Park

I’ve been incredibly busy each day, I feel like I get to work, and the next thing I know, it is time to get home and go to bed and the next morning you have to get up for work again, it’s a never-ending cycle. But lately, days feel like a blur. I haven't even had time to put up any blog entries anymore. It has been a few weeks since the last one. It feels like it has been a very long time since the last time I wrote. I missed blogging!

Welcome 2015!!!
I haven’t got much story to tell yet but last weekend we had a small picnic party at the park. The weather is simply awesome and the best place to enjoy the cool spell is the enormous park in the UAE, The Dubai Creek Park. One such day when the weather was just perfect, a special moment and a whole fleet of beautiful white seagulls made it all more memorable. It was a beautiful sight to watch these white winged creatures fly with the wind and then dip down gracefully to pick up the morsels from the blue waters.

Cutting through the heart of Dubai, the seawater Dubai Creek winds its way from the trading port on the Gulf to the Ras al Khor bird sanctuary on the desert edge of Dubai. Old-fashioned boats called dhows criss-cross the water from Bur Dubai on the left bank to Deira. Catch a water taxi dhow, called an Abra, to get from A to B, or sign up for a romantic sunset Dhow Cruise traveling further upstream. A cruise reveals the glittering high-rise buildings lining the Creek, passing under several bridges to reach the Creek side gardens. Or take a stroll along the paved promenade lining the Creek on the side of the waterway. An ordinary day with an awesome and relaxing scenery made my weekend even more special and complete.

So I guess I just need to sit-back and relax,
Enjoy the rest of the weekend folks.
