This weekend is a beach weekend, we were trying to enjoy the last times we're able to go to the beach before summer comes. So last weekend, me, 2 friends and 3 more of their friends, gathered for a BBQ session. The place was in Lulu island, they have prepared a picnic sets. We arrived in the jetty to Lulu at 16:30, the sun still shone brightly and the queue to get the boat was very long. We queued for 1.5 hours till finally we hopped in the boat to Lulu. The annoying thing here with the queuing stuff is that some people just don't understand the concept of queuing. They just rushed in and try to get themselves in first, ignoring all other people who has been there much before them.
We arrived in the island and directly hop in the first bus after paying the entrance fee.
It was awesome to eat and watch the bright orange sunset in front of us. The eating part was much faster than the cooking and setting the grill part:). It was quite dark, but yet we still decided to jump in the water. The water was not that cold, but after a while the wind makes it cooler. We just dipped ourselves in the water with the full moon above us. It was very nice and scarry at the same time:) since my biggest adventure with water is not more than swimming pool sessions:).
We rushed back and pack the things. Fortunatelly the fire was still on, so we can warm our buttocks on the fire:). Then catched the bus back to the boat jetty. And to our surprise that the queue for the boat was even much longer than when we went to the island! In total we have queued for 2.5 hours, means in total - to and from the island has caused us to queue 5 hours!.
We arrived back to Abu Dhabi, tired, satisfied with grilled stuffs and still wet!
