Wind, Water, Dredgers and Sharp Rocks

After what was starting to feel like an age since it had been windy, my friend even asked the other day if I still windsurfed, I had to pause for a second before answering as I knew that I had not been back on the water since arriving back in the Gulf.

Despite not too much wind it was great to be on the water with lovely 35C air and 30C water.

Lots of boats around at the moment and spent much of my time weaving between the Noon Island pictured above (a 106 m dredger) and its sister ship Reem Island which were both at anchor. Its always a little odd being so close to such huge ships, they are fine so long as they are not moving but when they are coming in or setting off to sea it can be rather interesting!

Gutted that on the way back to shore I snagged my foot on a rock and I think I now only have 4 1/2 toes on my right foot, anyway looks like I will have to be out of the water and off running for a few days.

More will follow
