We have a kip until about 3:00pm and then it's time to hit the pool for a swim and some beers. Happy hour (2 for 1) from 5-7:00pm. We found time to fit in some lunch of course. Then a quick shower and happy hour in the Chameleon Bar for a couple of cocktails before dinner at Frankie's Italian. Then Back to our room and bed
Day 2. Up about 9.00am and head to the breakfast buffet
Then it's onto the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque for the 11:00am tour. Another impressive mosque, that is relatively new. After our tour we wander about the outside of the mosque as it closes for Dhuhr prayer time and take a couple of (dozen) photos.
1:00pm and back to laze around the pool and lunch at the pool bar. We headed back to our room with the intention of going to Ferrari world. But after looking at reviews on the internet (major attractions being closed) we decided to just hang in our room until it was time to go to Chameleon for happy hour again. Waiter, another gin amoratizer please and quickly!
After cocktails it's time for the Thur night seafood buffet. While there was a large array of seafood dishes and non-seafood dishes there was not much in the way of fresh seafood. But we had our fill.
Then it was back to our room to pack for the last time.
Our third and final day (morning only, really) in Abu Dhabi, which was for rest and relaxation and we tried our best.
Up about 7:00am, a bit of packing and then down to breakfast before our 8:45am taxi to the airport.
We leave Abu Dhabi about 10:00am, 13hrs and 7-8 movies later we arrive in Sydney.
Pickup the hire care and drive to Newie arriving about 7:00am.
As always it's good to be home, but itching to go again.
So untill next time, inshallah.
