Wednesday Wonders

This building is featured in our booked tour of Dubai later this month. Unfortunately I doubt we will see it at night.


Tour buses, please detour.


Oregon? Strayer, you never told me about this.

  1. Wow. And wow again and again. The third is my favourite today, but I would love to see the first. Looking forward to your photos and some armchair travel.

  2. The third is Mum's favourite too. Nature always does it for her over man made crap even if it is wondrous man made crap as in that building. I like the tree one of course.

    I love that crescent building; is it commercial or residential?

    1. River, I doubt it would be residential. Hotel perhaps, but lit up like that, probably commercial.

    1. Margaret, it is as stunning photo but like the monster tides in Western Australia, you can perhaps only see it from the air.

  5. One of my friend's son worked in Dubai and she had been there twice. Apparently it is a horrible artificial town everything exaggerated. Nothing typical. Meanwhile the son is back and happy to be in a normal world again !

    1. Gattina, we are only going there because that is now the way most of planes go from here now, and we wanted to break the journey. I've never had any desire to see it, and it is quite expensive, it seems.

    1. Yes Jan. I guess it represents a moon crescent.

    1. Sandra, I just checked where in Oregon it is and it quite close to where Strayer mentioned above lives in Albany.

    2. Been there many times Andrew. When young we would be reckless and go into it, when the tide was coming in.

  9. We call it the Devil's Punchbowl. Here's a link to a nice video of it on youtube. At low tide, you can enter it, but you better get out before the tide comes in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJmTrAZLqD0

    1. Thanks Strayer. It looks terrifying in the video.

    2. Ok, I have now looked at other videos and I see how it works and how you can go in.

    1. Indeed CM, but we don't have to venture from our own country to see many interesting things. But Europe and Britain are pretty special places to visit.
