Sunday Musings #42: One About A Short Holiday And The Spring

Hello people, I am writing from the warm Dubai and the weather is still being weird here. We took off to Marjan Islands, in Ras Al Khaimah which is another Emirate (State?) in the UAE to enjoy the short Spring.

For those of you all interested, Marjan Islands is a man made archipelago in the Persian Gulf and is about less than 2 hours drive from where I live. It was just a two nights stay and was fun being in the beach for a change.

But didn’t I say the weather was weird? The sun kept playing hide and seek all through the day and then the rain poured down as we drove back home.

And then IT RAINED FOR TWO WHOLE DAYS! In DUBAI. Yes that literally has never happened in the whole time I have been here.

Anyway here are some pictures from the trip for you all.

What I read this week

Marjan Islands

I read The Woman in the Window by Finn A.J for our all female book club called the bookworms of UAE.

And I am currently reading the Curious incident of the dog in the night for the Classics N’ Christie club, which I hope to complete tonight, before the end of March. 

I guess these buddy reads and club reads keep me on my toes and I don’t waste time deciding what to read next.

On my blog

Here is a quick recap of the last week on my blog

Don’t you hate it when you schedule a post and it just won’t get published on time? Well that happened quite a number of times this week for me. My Friday post never got published and I hate that it is still on my draft and is waiting impatiently for its time. 

I will be linking today’s post with Caffeinated reviewer’s Sunday post Meme

  1. XD rained for two days in Dubai xD I can’t stop laughing at that. That is a bit unusual, and during the holidays as well xD it’s typical isn’t it…
    Here in the summer it will sometimes rain for weeks. Specifically when you go on a vacation xD so I am well familiar with that. But still, in Dubai xD

  2. OMG Those pictures are gorgeous! The clouds rolling in over the water just beautiful! Your trip sounds so nice, at least the rain was when you left but I always love a good storm but not when I am away! 🙂

    I hope you have a wonderful week, Gayathri! Happy Reading! xx

  3. Hahaha it rains nearly all the time in my country! But I guess if you never see the rain it must be shocking. Kind of like us having one sunny month 😉
    Thanks for the links! I already ahd read and enjoyed Lashaan’s post. Have a great Sunday!

    • We have about 5 very hot months, 3 sunny months 2 month of winter and 2 pleasant months usually! AND there is no rainy season at all.

  4. Sorry the weather was wonky. I hate when it’s cloudy on beach days. (Not that I got that often anyway lol).

    Glad you had a good time regardless. It looks really pretty over there.

    I didn’t have any trouble with scheduled posts lately, but I do hate when that happens. I received a test post email notification from your blog, so that worked fyi. 🙂

  5. It only happened once to me, that my scheduled post was never published, and I still don’t know if it was a bug, or did I forgot to click on the Schedule button.
    Anyway, I hope the weather will get netter where you’re at.

  6. I was drooling over those pictures. The water was such an incredible color. Hope you had an amazing time despite the hiding sun.

  7. Looks like an awesome place! Love the look of the water. Sigh I need a water vacation. Sorry to hear about the rain though!

    I hope you liked Woman in the Window.

  8. Ooooo the Marjan Islands from above looks so pretty! It sounds like you had fun though, despite the rain.

    Here it’ll sometimes be rainy for 3-4 days (that’s when flooding starts, though) or we’ll have 3 different seasons within the span of 12 hours.

  9. I love the photos from your trip! The weather has been bizarre this year. We are finally in a more normal pattern and have gotten to spring! I’m enjoying it and feeling more energetic with the wonderful weather. Happy reading!

  10. Those pictures just make me desperate for a holiday! Glad the rain didn’t mess up the beach time. 🙂
