Now that I started talking about Dubai let me take you back to a lovely afternoon spent at the new Anantara Hotel on the Palm a few weeks ago.
Anantara is located at the very end of the Palm so a bit of a drive away however very much worth it. I like the Palm. You get a lovely beach with beautiful views and it has a certain calmness to it.
Our friends were staying there so we took a little dip in their pool. Little M got to show off her swimming skills.
Later on we returned to the beach to make some sand castles.
There was some competition over a very fancy handbag.
It helps to be the taller one.
This particular afternoon was my final turning point. The point where I realised that I had started to look forward to living in Dubai. Being able to spend a day like this on regular basis can't possibly be a bad thing? I have a feeling that the kids won't mind it either...
