My Home Away from Home Region: Sharqiyah IN PROGRESS

Tiwi beach.
The famous sinkhole along the way. ***Also known as Hawyat Najm. One friend of ours once spent the day watching an Italian man in a speedo playing ukele here. OPNO was in the car being scolded by K for not respecting her elders so she never saw the sinkhole, BUT SHE did get to see five camels eat out of a dumpster near the parked car and angry Omani man inside car (that was a sight in itself).
Typical coastline on the drive along the coast from Qurayat to Sur. Volcanic rocks crumbling off into a mesmerizing blue sea.
Wadi Dyqah dam (made famous by this post [not really] http://howtolivelikeanomaniprincess.blogspot.com/2010/04/badr-and-water-seeing-dam-in-quaryat.html.
More of the Wadi Dyqah and driving to Qurayat. Houses, mountains, and green, and then rocks, mountain, and coast again.
Qurayat Port. Looks like home, hmmmm Baba? Yes, Omanis have bagpipes, an amusing site that IS to behold.
Traditional Dance photographed in Sur.
Traditional women's shoes, from Sharqiyah.

A'salaamu alaikum. The sea is gorgeous subhanallah. The coast in UAE did NOT look like that. :-)
