Dubai Beaches

We went to the beach the one day but we picked the wrong day to go.  The next day would have been hotter.  I left my dress on over by bikini because it was a bit chilly at times with the wind in December.  Everyone wears their bikinis and bathing suits so that is not an issue.  The water is clear and pretty not Caribbean colors but nicer than a Pacific Ocean or Atlantic Ocean beach.  We also drove out to the newly made Palm Islands that are shaped like a palm tree which is amazing feat of engineering.  The new Atlantis Dubai is at the heart of the Palm Islands.
 The sand is goldy, champagne color with tones of grey.  The beach was quite crowded but expansive with lots of things for kids to do.  There are many beaches to go to, some are private to a club which you have to pay to get into and some are public.  We stayed for a couple of hours.  It was Mason’s first time on the beach and he is now one year old and he kept trying to eat the sand.  We thought that he would quit after the first attempt because sand does not taste good but no he was good for another 5 tries much to the dismay of his father.  I thought it was hilarious though.
