All the rich, indulgent, almost sinful food had left us all lethargic and tardy.
Getting out of bed this morning was an exercise in self- motivation.
We had plans of getting out and about today, but nothing has materialized thus far. Hence the flurry of blog posts.
The only reason I woke up at 8 AM this morning was to wish folks back home.
It is weird in a sense. We celebrated Eid yesterday. For one set of parents (Mr H”s) and certain relatives, it’s Eid today while it’s tomorrow the other set of parents!
In short, we will be wishing “Eid Mubarak”- back and forth; for three days in a row! Brilliant!
For us, food wise- the Baturas and Mutton stew was almost perfect.
The desserts were up to the mark.
The Biriyani Gods weren’t so kind though. Arrogance and scatter- brain- ery; led to a slightly mushy rice. The taste wasn’t compromised though. If the cook may say so herself- IT WAS FINGER- LICKING GOOD!
A short, grub- induced siesta and half-a- movie later, off we went- to catch some moon, sea, sand- dunes and of course more GRUB!
SEALINE BEACH RESORT (about 70 km away)- The dessert on your right and the sea on the left.
Gentle waves, sparkling in the soft glow of the barely- there moonlight.
The air filled with a concoction of smells- sea, salt, smoke, barbeques…
The desert; dark and intimidating. Yet conquered by loud, roaring man- made machines.
Watching the waves.
Sand dune bashing.
Grilling more food…
I could only do one of two things- either click wonderful night- time pictures (which is a painstaking task considering it was almost pitch dark) for you folks or just enjoy myself.
I’m sorry, I chose to do the latter!
I hope you all had a wonderful Eid and holiday!
Here are the few pictures that I DID CLICK…
Till next time…
