Dubai From The Gulf … A Dubai Boat Cruise From The Marina …

_MG_6962-1So the final part of the Philipp family’s Christmas present was a boat trip around the Marina and the Palm in the afternoon after BREAKFAST … unfortunately Perry was still too ill to come on the boat trip with us … even so we managed to have a good time on the boat for a couple hours … the weather was perfect and the breeze was just what we needed …
