Our five year adventure in Doha, Qatar ended June 1, 2012, but the memories will always remain. It's back to Texas where I have decided...Qatar isn't cornering the market on "quirky", as I once believed. Thanks for opening my eyes to the world, Doha!

Desert and Airport Runs

I loaded up the kids this morning for an early morning airport run. It's not just real often that I see Doha in all its glory at 5:30am with the sun bouncing off the bay. It was a beautiful site, not unlike the beautiful Qatari deserts that we trekked through yesterday on our last day with Shea, Dustin, and Kristi.

Since it was Shea's first visit to the desert, we treated him to dune bashing* and camel riding that every new visitor to the area must experience.

The only thing missing was Kayla :(

Our resident pirate ~ doesn't every family have one?

Great family, great fun~See you on the flip side kids!

*We use Arabian Adventures for dune bashing

  1. Hello,

    I have searched the internet for skyline photos of Doha to use as an inspiration for a painting and came across yours, which I absolutely love and the people I am doing the painting for love too. Would you be happy for me to use your photo for my painting? I would really appreciate and of course I would email you the image of the painting once it is finished. I really look forward to hearing from you soon.
    Best regards,

  2. Hi Alena. I would be honored to have my image transferred to canvas. Looking forward to seeing the end result! Best of luck.


I always love hearing your comments. Go ahead make my day, be it the good, the bad, or the ugly...
