Would you believe it? I’m still trying to catch up with posts and photos from two weeks ago! First off, I give you this photograph of sunset over The Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residence as a consolation for the double post today. Taken at around 5.30pm I think on National Day (2nd Dec) while we were waiting for dinner time.
Rewind to about an hour and a half before the sunset photo was taken, and we were at a Starbucks where Patrick enjoyed a frappuccino and a slice of this chewy, rich, dark chocolate cake. I took a couple of small bites and he glared at me!
After that snack at Starbucks, we walked down the length of The Walk, just enjoying the sights until we caught up with my sister. In the meantime, there were plenty of photo opportunities including this funny one of father and son.
And this one. I saw the opportunity and got the other kids to help position Patrick just right. Should have done it again though as Patrick is blurred in this shot. He loved posing for this even though it was right there on the street and people were watching.
And of course, Joseph had other ideas! I’m sure passersby had no idea what was going on but if they did, maybe some would laugh and some would be offended. I think it’s funny, but I’m maternally biased.
And then we caught up with my sister at the small flea market at the end of The Walk. It was tempting but some of the stuff were grossly overpriced. I bought two items for the office Secret Santa but that was it. Eibee, my brother-in-law and my sister in a rare photo together.
As usual, I brought the wrong lens for this so the distant Palm Atlantis is but a blur of coloured lights. It was decked out in style for the UAE National Day celebration and all I could get was this bokeh.
