Ok to start with I want to say damn it I left my Camera at home :o(
Yesterday was a pretty hot day, but at the beach the weather was amazing with a nice summer breeze, it was wonderful...
After one hour waking up my husband..Gosh, I hate to wake him up so much especially on Friday's cuz he keeps saying "it's Friday I am supposed to sleep in" but Alhamdolilah Meral did the job.. Well you can imagine every thing she did to wake him up... pinching tapping and tickling him until he woke up, she was so eager to go to the beach!
So after having our breakfast, and preparing thingies and some "tuna & harisa" sandwiches..lol we left at 10 a.m. , and the weather was hot already, we headed to Janzour Touristic Village ; I am glad to say the changes they have made to the beach are promising, seems like FINALLY they're taking care of it (I hold this place dear, we spent lots of summers there), they have installed those beach hay umbrellas, similar to the ones you find in Hurghada and Hammamet, which you can rent for 5 Dinars, also they have constructed a booth on the beach area that sells burgers, ice creams, soft drinks and light snacks, it's a good idea since all other shops and restaurants are at about 5-minute walking distance,
It was crowded but I was surprised that people were minding their own business and not staring at each others, there were a number of Libyans, and a lot of non Libyans too; Eastern Europeans and Middle Easterners.
Back to Meral, before we left the house she was so happy and literally screaming happy..but the moment she saw the sea she said "let's go home and come back tomorrow!!"..I told her it was too late... then little by little and after talking to her and convincing her, she agreed to sit where the waves can reach her feet only! You can say she swam but in the sand not in the sea!! She was frightened due to how big the sea looked comparing to the bathtub, she is used to the latter. Yet, it was fun watching her play with the sand knowing that she was enjoying it so much, she didn't want to go home after all!!
We went back home around 3 O'clock, the sun was unbearable by then, a hot summer day afternoon sun, tired and hungry Meral ate and slept for 2 hours, this morning when I was leaving to work she asked "when you come back from work, will you take me to the beach?" I didn't answer her, didn't want to promise her any thing, so she looked at me and said "say InshaAllah!".....lol I couldn't help but laugh... and say InshaAllah!
