Splashes and Smiles

Oh me, oh my! Two weeks away from the blog seemed like forever to me! I have to say I really enjoyed my vacation though. Since there was not a teeny bit of craft supplies over the last couple of weeks, I clearly have nothing crafty to show you today. Instead, I'll leave you with some bits and pieces of what my vacation was like. Interested enough to join me? anyone? Let's go!

First off let me tell you about the gorgeous city where I spent my vacation.
It's a little city on the Mediterranean sea called Marsa Matrouh. It's located in the northwest of Egypt and it's about a 3 hours drive from Alexandria (where I live)
 Without further ado, here are the photographs:

 My little cousin Habeeba & I.
Her name means "beloved" in Arabic. :)

We caught a crab..

Collected seashells..

Built sandcastles..

Caught starfish..

Played Tick-Tack-Toe with beach rocks and sticks..

Watched my uncles' great fishing skills..

And showed them ours..

They caught beautiful fish..

And we did, too!
 We drew on the golden sand..

And celebrated Jana's missing teeth..

We watched the waves hug the rocks..

And smiled for the camera..

Lots of fun, water fights and sunshine filled these two weeks. We had a blast staying up late to grill marshmallows or have midnight ice-cream!

Did you go somewhere special this summer? If you have a blog post about it I would love to see your photos and learn about new places. If not, just give me a sneak peak in a comment!

Have a great day,                                          


  1. OK, let's try this again, shall we? I love your pictures, like I said on your FB page, the star fish is my favorite, mainly because I have never seen one on the beaches down here. Glad you had a good time on vacation but happy to have you back here in bloggy land! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

    1. Starfish are so much fun to search for! You should come to Alexandria one summer, you'll go back home with a bag full of starfish! :D
      I had a really good time and I'm so very happy to be back.

  2. Wao dear girl..I am sure you enjoyed a lot & it seems so much fun..waooo..
    by the way are you at instagram..?

    1. I enjoyed my time very much Khadija! Unfortunately no, I'm not at instagram. But you just give me your username and I'd be more than happy to look through your beautiful photos every other day. :)

  3. Hi Roudi,

    Welcome back! The vacation looks like it was a lot of fun. And how beachy of you to play tic tac toe with shells and driftwood! You are on clever girl.


    1. Thank you Kay! It really was a lot of fun. The kids and I spent hours playing that game. Guess it never gets old, ha? :):)

      Thank you for stopping by. ♥
