Addyson standing in front of the "family entrance" sign at Chili's
Our mail goal of our outing today was to go car shopping. That didn't really go as planned. One dealership was closed because of the holiday. The other one, I didn't get to go into because Ethan had just fallen asleep. The next one,we were told to come back in the evening during "family time". And that was the end of our car shopping experience. I was kind of tired of looking for dealers and navigating the crazy busy street. The kids and I were tired of being in the car and ready to get OUT. So we headed to the Corniche (boardwalk area) and found a Chili's. So, needless to say, we were going home today without a car... which I was totally fine with... at this point!
A beautiful beachy area with turquoise blue water we pass right before turning off to go towards our camp.
THIS is why we are here!!!!
ps- excuse the constant pony tail I'm sporting these days... the salt water I shower in and the heat and humidity doesn't really help in the hair department! Also, you'll notice the lack of make-up... I have started to not even mess with it... I end up sweating it off before the day is over.. which is funny to me because some of the Saudi women are SO done up... I have NO idea how they wear all that make-up and keep it on ALL day... and under their abayas they are wearing long sleeve shirts and pants so I know they have to be hotter than I am.... because I'm wearing a tank top or tshirt and shorts under mine... which also means you'll probably start to see me in "less than dressy" clothes since the abaya is an excuse for me to not have to get dressed up!!! : )
Okay, that about sums up our day... another day of adventure in Saudi! Thanks for following!
