Last weekend was a bridge weekend. On Thursday we went to the, so called, private beach. It was a family day, that means that only family is allowed to enter. In Kuwait, there are also lady’s days when only women are allowed to entry.
We had a lot of fun as you can see on the pictures. Water was like 30 degrees C (90 F), full of life. You should hear Olga’s scream when she started to pick up shells and suddenly she discovered that they are alive animals inside. A little trauma for a 5-years old.
The sand at the beach… well, everybody knows that the best beaches are in Poland, near Łeba, where the dunes are, nothing compares.
Here beaches are treated differently. It is a place where you come to sit in the shade of a tree, grill food, eat and talk. Kids play at the sea or on a playground. Nobody lies on the sand getting burned.
We spend the whole day at the beach. It was the very good weather. The sky was covered with clouds, so it was not so hot. At the afternoon, it was a nice breeze from the sea. The air temperature was around 27 C (80F) and then suddenly in like 30 seconds the wind blew and the temperature rose by 10 degrees. The sand storm came from the desert. The sandstorm looks like a fog, but it is a cloud of very small grains of sand, like a dust getting everywhere, especially into your nose. Well, the burka makes sense at this point.
At the photographs, you can see what people are wearing, usually shorts and t-shirt and it does not matter if you are a woman or a man. The point – you don’t want to burn your skin. At the private beaches, bikinis are allowed and there were few women in bikini, but I did not see a single man in a speedo, it is forbidden.
