Just next to the gorgeous Al Noor masjid and Buhairah corniche in Sharjah is this small strip of land with hundreds of palm trees. It’s simply called the Palm Oasis, where families come to spend an afternoon to relax. The children are exceptionally happy, running around bare foot and riding their colorful bicycles, specially after spending most of their after-school time confined in apartments.
Mom and sisters stopped by yesterday with a thermos full of hot tea (Ammi makes the yummiest tea ever) and some assorted desi snacks. Then we drove to the corniche, parking right in front of the Palm Oasis. I took this picture while walking with Mom (who was kind enough to hold my tripod for me), while the rest were walking behind us with our food.
Another wonderful time with the family, alhumdulillah.
Took another picture after tea …
