An Email From Bob: Walking the Pearl

It took about an hour to walk to Tower 31 at the Pearl.  The beach is small with no waves except from passing boats - but it IS a beach!  There are umbrellas and chairs set up and ready to use on a first come/first served basis and a sand volleyball court too.


 The West Bay is right across the water - looks great during the day, even better at night. 


A temporary Christmas store was set up in an empty building – about a dozen tents with a very small selection of gifts like tee shirts and jewelry.  Nice, with Christmas music playing in the background.


After my two-hour walk (there and back), I decided not go to the (grocery) store tonight and instead just eat some curry spice noodles I already had on hand for dinner.  Yum.

(editors note:  Bob would referring to those square .10 cents-to-buy-em, jippy-tummy inducing college-student packs of Ramen noodles that you quit eating as soon you’re graduated and hired, whether it’s dishing up fries at McDonald’s or…oh, I dunno…working as an architect in Qatar.  J  Sad, huh?  He needs me.)
