So it’s actually just Salalah but I’ve been going around for days adding extra ‘las’ because I just couldn’t help it.

We made it safely through the Suez Canal and after six days at sea our feet ached for some land time.  As our first Omani port, I knew that finding something to do would be a tad difficult based on the location of our berth (if you’ve watched Captain Phillips, you can see that it’s quite a cargo port).  Though we struggled with communication a little, we managed to successfully work a deal with a local cab driver to see the beach and blowholes at Marneef Cave.  The cave was more like an overhang unless we missed the entrance…

Although the main colors of the landscape consisted of various browns and tans, the area was just beautiful in its own rite.  Absolutely stunning jagged hills and cliffs.  The turquoise waters and wandering camel herds definitely enhanced the experience as well.
