Beach Day at Thuwal!
We visited a beautiful public beach just an hour from our home in Jeddah. It was very near to KAUST [King Abdullah University of Science & Technology], in Thuwal, Saudi Arabia. It was such a wonderful experience to barbecue. So many other families did the same. the kids enjoyed swimming in the shallow water. There was no seaweed at all and the water was pretty clean. Women who wanted to get wet, just walked out in the water, with their abaya's-it was no big deal at all. I was wearing my abaya- but I didn't plan on swimming anyways. I'm beginning to realize that men looking at women in abaya's is a much better situation than men looking at women in bikinis. I guess I am fitting in just fine here!
