We dropped by Fujeirah for a day trip since we could not get rooms for an overnight stay. It was a relatively short drive, less than 2 hours from our house. Since we overestimated the travelling time, we arrived at the beach in the middle of the day. It is definitely getting cooler with the onset of winter weeks away, but even than, a mid day sun is still overwhelming.
We than compromised and had over lunch picnic in the car, with the back open to enjoy the sea breeze!
A quick swim in the sea and a considerably long time creating sand castles and we were back on the road to Dubai. It gets dark pretty soon these days so we arrived back just in time for an early dinner and drive around the sea wall next to the Burj Dubai.
Since the kids had taken a nap on the drive over, we decided to continue driving and see the new part of town close to the Marina.
All the walk made the family tired, and a quick stop at the pastry shop for some drinks and cakes was required.
