Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’

When the summer sizzles in Dubai with 40+ temperatures, outdoor activities become restricted. However the beach is always an option in the evening when the cool wind blows across the water. Here is my favorite little person running on the beach. He’s coming to show me a shell he’s found…

My Son is a Star!

Further to my post earlier today, my son Nadir and I did go to the beach and we didn’t encounter a hailstorm. Instead we met a film crew shooting a commercial and they asked my son to be part of the commercial! We readily agreed and Nadir’s part consisted of running on the beach with another “actor” who was playing his dad. They had to take the shot many times but Nadir didn’t tire at all. In fact when they finished a good 45 minutes later with a big round of applause for Nadir, he didn’t want to leave!

I made a video of Nadir while he was shooting. Here he is in action:

Perfect Beach Weather

You’re at the beach with some friends and/or family, enjoying the sun, nibbling on some watermelon. All of a sudden, within seconds, the weather shifts and hale starts descending form the sky. Write a post about what happens next.

What a coincidence. I’m heading for the beach just after writing this post. Not that I’m going to swim, it’s for my son who loves playing in the water and jumping on sand castles. We’re not likely to experience any weather shifts, the forecast is HOT and DRY, but obviously if something like the given scenario would take place, I would just grab my son and run. Hail in the middle of the summer on the beach can mean only trouble and it would be best NOT to be there. Anything could happen next.

For now my son and I are going to enjoy the beach without any hail. Good luck to the rest of you!
