Jamie and I didn't particularly plan well today, although the day worked out in the end. The beach resort was very nice with a small beach, great sand, wonderful beach lounges and umbrellas as well as a nice pool setting and outdoor restaurant with couches and fans for eating. We decided to leave at 2:30 after we ate lunch because the boys hadn't napped at all. Some other members of our group stayed and snorkeled. They said it was some of the best snorkeling they ever done which is saying a lot since they've been all over.
We rested in the afternoon before going over to our friends' house for a birthday celebration of shawarmas, ice cream, and cake. Birthday boy was turning 36.
Again, a great day in Jeddah. It is a pretty cool city; and after looking up some information, we discovered that it is quite a large city of about 4 million people. We look forward to seeing more of the city in the next couple of days.
