Al Sheeh Garden, shadowed seating

Al Sheeh Garden, shadowed seating

This was taken at the small park featured in the previous three images. It really was a delightful place for light and shadows and relaxing.

I have gotten behind in commenting due to a very late night at work last night (but hope to catch up this morning). Plus our air freight shipment arrived from Budapest yesterday (the things we are supposed to have upon arrival at a new post, although we have been here well over a month now!), so we were up until 2 a.m. trying to put some of it away. Storage is pretty scarce in Saudi houses, so I haven't a clue what we will do when our sea freight arrives -- six lift vans of it -- next week (they say). But it's nice to have some familiar things like a Nespresso maker and real pots and pans and my desktop computer, although I don't have a desk right now to put it on.

This is a view of what lies beyond the DQ:

The best thing about dealing with all of that stuff is you may lose a few excess pounds from the exercise of putting it away!

Beautiful intricate details on the roof and railings. It must casts very interesting
shadow patterns at the right time of day. V
