We were in the Liwa area which forms part of the empty quarter, so called because it is the largest sea of sand in the world, a unique area of desert. Fortunately we did not have to face the harshness of the area, we merely relaxed at a nice resort for two days. We did come across some very interesting tracks on the desert sand and are not quite sure what creatures created these, except for one set that we later spotted being created by a little black beetle.
Jaunine took some photos of these tracks :
We did more than just spotting tracks on the desert sand, we also made friends with a friendly local camel 🙂
If you’re in the desert long enough, these animals even become less ugly, almost cute!
They appear to be very gentle and extremely patient.
Jaunine managed to capture this excellent shot of our resident camel at sunset :
Other than spotting sand tracks and camels, we also had time to really relax!
We made sure we got round to explore and photograph the desert at sunset :
We really had a relaxed time and would like to go back for some more exploration, but before that happens we have some other excursions planned for the near future.
Stay tuned !
