Musandam, Oman

We ventured north into the country of Oman last weekend. The destination, the Musandam Peninsula. We woke at 4 AM on Friday, drove to Dubai, and were picked up by our driver at 6 AM. By 10 AM we were on a traditional wooden dhow boat for a six hour tour of the Fjords. The entire peninsula consists of mountains of rock with steep cliffs dropping into crystal clear, tourquoise water. There were schools of dolphins and brightly colored tropical fish everywhere. By the time we make our next trip to Musandam, we should (Insha'Allah) be PADI certified scuba divers.

After the dhow boat ride, another boat took us to the harbor outside the fishing village of Khasab. There, we boarded a 115 foot sailboat for dinner and over night accomodation in one of the eight state rooms. Besides the four staff members, we had the whole boat to ourselves. A perfect meal and a perfect sunset made for a perfect kick off to a romantic Valentine's Day.
