After a wonderful breakfast of tea, a chocolate croissant, and bread and butter the group went there separate ways (always in groups of four) to ......SHOP. At 11:00 we all set out from the Riad to a Jeep to take us to the singled humped camels. We all found our camel to be and mounted onto the "saddle". Those animals are TALL!!! The first time you are on a camel and it stands up, it is quite a shock because you heave forward (gripping to the wooden handle in front with everything you got), only to the heave back. The lead camels and the owners took charge and we headed out for the beach. We had a nice wind complete with a gust of sand, leaving a crunch in your mouth. We had a gorgeous view of the city and ruins along the beach while traveling across the mini sand dunes. We then experienced the camel drop as we stopped half way to take pictures and play in the waves. This short 30 minute ride had left some of us a little bow legged. We soon swung ourselves back into the saddle for the home stretch and negotiated and made our way in between a few construction trucks. After the camel dropped down to the ground a second time, the first group left for the city while a few of us admired the beautiful arabian horses that where at the same farm as the camels.
