We needed some good food and wine (wines are available only at hotels). So we went to The Chedi our last evening in Muscat - WOW!!!
What a treat. Pool side dinner with astonishing views. Wouldn´t mind to stay a couple of nights here...
View from the pool bar restaurant.
We had 4 great days in Oman. Now it´s nice to be back home. Oman - what a fantastic country! Wonderful and friendly people, just as curious about us as we are on them. Lovely surroundings and great beaches (a bit better in Dubai though) and the best soaks (markets) so far both in Muscat and in Nizwa.
Muttrah Souk in Muscat
Day one we explored the beaches around Muscat. The day was sunny and about 25 degrees C.
We took beautiful photos that M by accident deleted that same afternoon...
These pictures are from day 2. Rain and about 17 degrees C...Our first rain since coming to the UAE in August.
Oman Diving Centre - a hot spot on a sunny day. The day before it was crowded and just lovely...
The Shangri la Resort in the background...

This Weekend I made some small changes at home. Out with the black in the girls room. Black was my plan when coming to D. Now out of their request their place has been transformed into a pink girl's heaven...
One of the quilts got a new home in our bedroom.
Bed from IKEA and quilt and pillows from Swedish Ahlens. http://www.ahlens.se/

Made some purchases yesterday at Pottery Barn and Pottery Barn Kids (Mirdif City Centre). I just love their stores. I bought this big basket that I saw when I was there in the beginning of the week and plaided quilts for A + A. A very rustic basket but I like it.
