Holiday - Muscat (Day 4)

Well, 25C is the coldest day so far - but I guess we’ll cope! It’s day 4 of 5 here and we plan to do no planning at all!

We took a quick look round the ‘recreated’ heritage village next door and that was a bit disappointing in term of content. It was fun trying to escape from the local shops without buying anything having been enticed in by the locals promising: “very special price” and “special deal for being our first customers today”.

With only sun-bathing on the agenda, this left plenty of time for taking some shots around the Resort.

By far the hardest decision today was what to eat for lunch - hot dogs or apple pie with ice-cream. This dilemma was solved with the help of Facebook friends, where the consensus was ‘both’!

We retreated from the Sun around 4pm and headed inside to the comfort of our air-conditioning unit room. A quick shower and a change of clothes saw the batteries fully recharged and so we took advantage of ‘happy-hour’ in the Piano Lounge before going to the Tapas Bar for a light evening meal. Then to finish off the evening, we headed for Reception - and their comfy sofas - to catch-up with our reading.

Tomorrow is our last full-day here and we’ve planned another ‘no plans’ day.
