I took the kids horse riding this afternoon. It was probably one of the most beautiful places in Bahrain that I have been to for a while. It was our first time there and I was thoroughly impressed.
The place was tucked away in Saar and the reason I liked it so much is because it had a feeling of being ‘untouched’. There were lots of horses roaming around, the weather was beautiful, and there were palm trees everywhere!
It kind of reminded me of the Bahrain I remember when I was a kid – palm trees and greenery combined with farmers and rain puddles here and there.
I just thought I’d share this photo with you from this afternoon. I think horse riding is a beautiful sport to get into. I wish I had done it as a kid and I wish I could do it now (I’m still not comfortable getting on a horse). But if my kids want to do it I would totally encourage it! They seemed into it today so let’s see what happens.
I love it when kids learn a skill while having fun!
And the best part? It was an ‘almost-full’ moon tonight. That was a beautiful sight behind the palm trees. The year will end tomorrow on a perfectly full moon, don’t forget to look up at the sky on your way to your new year’s eve party!
I hope you have a wonderful year ahead. 2010 here we come!
