Musundam 2011

Last week was Eid Al Adha so we figured that we would get out of town for a few days. Since we enjoyed our trip to Musundam last year during Eid, we thought that we would do the same thing.

Luckily, this year getting through the border wasn't as much of an issue as it was last year. We were able to get through in about an hour and headed to the same beach that we went to last year about 20 kilometers past the border.
Our tents on the beach. The beach didn't have any rocks last year.

We did a half day dhow cruise last year so thought it would be nice to do a full day cruise this year. Because I wasn't sure about how many people were coming, I didn't have the chance to make the booking for Sunday until the Thursday before. Normally, I don't think this would have been an issue but with the holiday, they were booked up. They said that they could probably get us in on Monday. I said to let us know if Sunday opened up. I called on Saturday night and told them that I was in Musundam and that were planning on coming for the Sunday full-day dhow cruise that we had  booked and they said no problem, we'll see you tomorrow. I reasoned that if you just show up, there will probably be someone who reserves and doesn't show up.

Just after this picture, the two of us leaned over the bow of the boat and I shouted, "I'm the king of the world!"

The boat cruise itself was pretty good with some time to take a swim, do some snorkeling, and look at some coral. Lunch was provided and  we got to see some dolphins.

Some dolphins or sharks or something.

 After we got back, we were in time for some relaxing on the beach and swimming at our campsite.

We stayed two nights then headed to Dreamland the next day. The trip was fairly tiring, but it was good to get away for a few days.


  1. Nice picture of the two of you (except for the hairy legs).
