This place was really nice. All it is missing is a pool, but the beach is long and wide and well maintained. The lounge chairs and tables are shaded and the restaurant has some fantastic pizzas. We spent about 4 hours mid day there before heading back for a little rest.
We then headed out to our friends' school to check it out. They are putting on a HUGE production of Oz, and our friend is producing it. It will be absolutely amazing, and we are hoping we might actually come back over here to see it.
After the school tour, we headed over to On the Border for some Mexican food. Our boys were exhausted and didn't eat but the food was good. We ran some errands on the way home and even stumbled upon The Fountain, the world's largest fountain. It was pretty cool, and we were lucky we found it.
We'll pack up tonight and head toward Medain Saleh tomorrow. Our hosts here have been marvelous and very helpful. I can only hope we can repay them sometime.
