We woke up with goats at our campsite.
Some of us went to the water tanks to fill our bottles. For breakfast, there was still some pancake mix: yum yum!










 
 








































 
When we were about to leave some children from the village came to our campsite and helped the girls to drag their kayak to the water. And then, they raced with us on their small wooden boat!
















 



 
We left by along the rocky coast. And since it was low tide we could go under some rocks.


















Then at the entrance of the Bay of Sham, we stopped for snorkeling. There were two great clown fishes.















































For lunch, we stopped on a sandy beach close to our first campsite. It was a perfect spot to have fun with the kayaks.
 
















Then it was the final stage of our kayak trip, heading back to Khasab port where everything had started. Because of the wind on the beam, it was once again sports with waves coming across.
Back at the port, we loaded the kayak on A* SUV.. And then it was the return to civilization with the recent opening of the Lulu Hypermarket on the 2/11/2011.

 





























 





We brought back the kayaks to the storage building rented at Khasab Travel & Tours. And then the minibus took us back to the hotel where we could, at last, have a real shower!
For dinner we went in town to eat at Al Shamalyi.
