We're on a boat!

Pin It Now!
Nearly 3 months since I arrived in Saudi and I'm finally out on a boat in the Red Sea!  :)  Some friends invited us to tag along on a glass bottom boat cruise today.  I couldn't say yes fast enough.  And it was just what the doctor ordered...
Finding yourself surrounded by some of the bluest waters you've ever seen makes you question that you're really in Saudi Arabia.
It was a perfect morning...even a bit chilly at first.  We were out for 3 hours...just moseying along, rockin' out to music...the captain would put the boat right over some of the many reefs and we all hung over the interior rails to get a look at the sea life under the boat.  The reefs are beautiful (even through the glass)...saw many fish, a sea turtle, and a sunken ship! (okay, it was just a boat, but the girls got a real kick out of it)
The captain ran the boat right up on a sand bar so the kids could play.  A couple of guys went snorkeling and the rest of us just wandered around...(I wasn't about to get all the way in...the water was cold!)  Found some fun shells and the girls built a castle.  On the way back we even spotted some camels...now that'll ground ya right back to the fact that you're livin' in Saudi. 
Just totally beautiful and such a refreshing break.  Loved every minute.  Can't wait for the next trip!
