Everyone kept telling me "just wait for October, the weather is incredible".
The first Friday in October arrived and it didn't disappoint. Hot and sunny, but not too hot or sunny. Yesterday, we even sat outside to eat in the middle of the day, unthinkable just a week ago.
In the late afternoon, we joined the rest of Dubai at the beach. The kids made sandcastles and dugs holes. They splashed in the tepid sea. They scuttled along the shore.
Skip and I watched the sun set. The sunsets here are incredible. We watched as the sun, a burning globe, dropped in the sky in a matter of minutes before oozing into the horizon.
