FOTD (Flower of the Day) Challenge is a daily challenge on Ceen Photography
This pic is from the unprecedented rainy months last winter in Kuwait. It rained like there was no tomorrow.
While many rain records were broken, a lot of us who are used to 50 degree summers surely weren’t complaining as cool and cloudy days greeted us day in and day out. These were moments to cherish.

For most people, the country Kuwait generally evokes phrases like oil rich nation, hot weather etc. But it’s a country of numerous beaches as well. And what if I tell you that in this country you can take a nice long walk along the beautiful beaches for many months of the year?
Beaches are places where you can relax and unwind.
Beaches are places where you can rewind your thoughts and give meaning to them.
Beaches are places where the sound of the sea waves hitting the sea shore provides a sense of tranquility far away from the big bad world out there.
So we have already the crossed the first half of the year. As always, it feels as though the months have passed by quicker than I can even imagine. And soon we will bid goodbye to another year gone by.
January started off with me still dreaming about my trip to Moscow and the lovely winter there. There were travel posts galore of the times in Moscow, Kuwait and Singapore. February and March were all about family and fun. I went home for the first time after coming to Kuwait and it truly felt like those days back in Muscat whenever we used to go home during the school summer vacations. There was also the trip to Dubai which culminated in a number of travel posts as well.
The winter months in Kuwait are the best time for taking a stroll at the numerous beaches. The maximum temperatures at about 12-15 degrees are way cooler than the 50+ degrees it rises to during the summer months.
Taking advantage of the same, I stepped out for a walk at the Marina beach a few moons ago. And I must say it was a pleasure just watching the tranquil waters of the Persian Gulf with the cool breeze hitting one’s face.
