It does rain in Muscat, like I blogged about six weeks ago. But, really cloudy days are still unusual. And I just don't remember seeing clouds like this. My friend, Paula, was driving my other friend, Debi, and I to lunch. I kept remarking on the clouds. She said, "Do you want me to pull over so you can take pictures?" I said no, because we were driving on a major highway. And who really takes pictures of clouds? But then I thought, why not? This is Oman, after all, where one can pull over anywhere you want. And I wanted pictures of clouds. :) I really need to blog about driving here.
Paula was driving on the Muscat Expressway, a highway I am not usually on. I liked the views. This was by the Ghala Valley golf course.
This is one of my favorite mosques in Muscat. I didn't include it in my 'Mosques of Muscat' blog post because I could never get a good picture of it. And it is still not completed.
I took pictures on the way to lunch and on the way back. Hopefully I am not duplicating scenes. :)
A better picture of the mosque.
The best picture yet!! This did require stopping on the side of the highway again. Paula drove us on a road I had never been on before. The Amirat road exit, before you get on the Amirat road. :) Something like that.
It did rain that day and most of the night, but not as heavy as last month. Which is a good thing!
There is all sorts of beauty in Oman-- even in the clouds!
Not clouds, but this picture was in my camera just after the clouds. Savannah decided we needed a new selfie, so she waits till I am in the middle of cooking dinner to take it. Austin with his photo-bombing expression. Love my kids!
Next blog post? Probably spring break. Which we haven't gone on yet.
