There’s no Autumn here in Dubai. Naturally, because the four seasons do not exist in desert land. We just have warm and warmer (read: crazy hot) weather for the whole year. November to March is great and the rest of the months are just crazy. Hot. Humid. Dehydrating.
I’m reading blogs and have seen bloggers writing about their Autumn trip plans to see some lovely foliage in the country and pumpkin harvests. Wow. I miss those days when the leaves turn to different colors during Autumn. Pristine is constantly asking me why the leaves in the trees here in Dubai seem to have the same color 365 times a year.
It was Autumnal Equinox (First day of Autumn) last September 22nd but it’s still 38C (100F) at mid-day here. We couldn’t go foliage sight seeing so we went to the beach when I had a day off thanks to Eid holidays.
I almost stepped on this little monster. It got washed up ashore and looking closely, we could see little hairs swaying in the air. It’s kinda creepy.
We really didn’t do much at the beach. The water was warm but since we got there late in the afternoon (so we wouldn’t burn), the water was not that clear anymore. Pristine played with the sand instead.
This is our third Eid holiday in Dubai and every year, we spend it at the beach. Maybe next year will be different…I just don’t know how different.
Though we don’t have Autumn here, I do look forward to milder weather. Will have to go back to the beach when the water’s not too cold. And this clear:
What do you look forward to in Autumn?
