When I hear the word "gulf" I have warm, fuzzy thoughts. My childhood summers were spent on the shores of Mobile, Alabama (the Gulf of Mexico) with my grandparents and cousins. And now I live near a gulf again. This time its on the other side of the world! But, still the warm water and sandy beach is a comfort for this mom :)
Last weekend we took advantage of a short break from Language school and drove three hours to the beach. After we finish learning Arabic in the school setting (do we ever truly stop learning?) then the plan is to move to the capital, which is right on the water! YAY! More motivation to get Arabic down, thats for sure. The water was so warm that it felt a little like bath water. But we still had fun splashing around. When we first moved here Alexis did not want anything to do with the water and now we have to keep her from wading out too far! She LOVES it! Here are a few photos from our day at the beach.
