Oman Road Trip … Day 2 … Relaxing Day At The Shangri-La …

Our second day was a very laid back one (you can read about our first day HERE if you missed it) … we hadn’t planned to do anything that day other than relax and unwind … we ended up waking quite early in the morning as we’d falled asleep so early the night before … and I guess we’re used to it as well … but it did mean we got to watch the sunrise over the Gulf of Oman and the beach … which was lovely see from the bed …

_MG_5350-1 _MG_5352-1We got ready and had breakfast out on the terrace of the restaurant … the weather was really lovely that morning and everything smelt fresh after the rain the night before …

Perry and I both really liked how they set the table with the knives standing up …

_MG_5375-1 _MG_5378-1Perry had Steak and Egg for breakfast …

_MG_5379-1 While I opted for some poached eggs and trimmings …

_MG_5381-1 _MG_5383-1We shared the pancakes …

_MG_5385-1Once we had gorged ourselves on some delicious food we headed back to our room and got changed before heading down to the pool … it was still only 8.30am by this point so it was really quiet and peaceful … we found a good spot where I could do some sunbathing and Perry could stay in the shade of the umbrella to keep from burning …

_MG_5486-1 _MG_5496-1 _MG_5500-1 _MG_5501-1 _MG_5508-1 _MG_5487-1The pool itself is an infinity pool which overlooks the waters of Gulf … it was all incredibly relaxing …

It was abit windy when I first got out of the pool …

Oh and while you sit at the sun loungers one of the hotel staff brings round a Coleman cool box with drinks and a water mist spray thing to keep you cool … later on someone else brought round little bowls of fruit and a cold towel … it was brilliant …

Perry loved these little ketchup bottles … they came with everything …_MG_5555-1The food was actually pretty good and we both enjoyed what we’d ordered …

_MG_5561-1 _MG_5562-1Perry had the burger and I had the Pizza … After we’d eaten we went for another wander round the resort but this time to the side we hadn’t visited …

_MG_5568-1 _MG_5587-1 _MG_5591-1 _MG_5571-1 _MG_5595-1 _MG_5597-1 _MG_5617-1We headed over to the Turtle beach … from January – June each year the Turtles come to this section of beach to lay their eggs and then the hatchlings make their way to the water … the hotel have a conservation programme and there are signs up all over the place telling people how to watch them from a safe distance and what not to do etc … we will have to try and come back next time during the Turtle nesting season … would be amazing to see that …

_MG_5619-1We made our way round and ended up going to see our hotels private beach … which is in a lovely little alcove …

Little piece of coral …

_MG_5696-1 _MG_5692-1 _MG_5670-1We had Afternoon Tea again … different this time but still yummy …

_MG_5726-1 _MG_5729-1 _MG_5730-1 _MG_5704-1 _MG_5717-1In the evening we headed out to the Seafood restaurant Bait al Bahar where the food was ok … I wouldn’t have said it was anything amazing but it was good enough … once back in our room we decided to order dessert to finish off the evening … a Crepe and a Crumble … a pretty good end to our second day …
