UAE 42nd National Day … Dubai Marina Boat Parade

Yesterday was the official date of the UAE’s 42nd National Day … the the whole country was celebrating over the long weekend … its always fun to be around for National day … people go all out and decorate their cars with flags and other stuff so its usually quite a site around the city … this year for the first time they decided to also have a National Day Boat Parade through the Marina …

This happened on Sunday this week and even though Perry was out at the time I spent about 30mins on the balcony watching the boats going past … lots of people had gone to great lengths to decorate these boats/yachts …
