Paddling in the sea in Dubai

Arrived this morning, dropped off our kit at our hotel and caught the handy (and very cheap and clean), metro to the Marina.
There is still a lot of work going on, but the completed buildings are amazing. They are sky high and really packed in close together, with some lovely looking gin palaces moored up on the water.
We walked through the Marina and suddenly found ourselves on the beach.
The water looked beautiful and inviting and was only a little bit nippy. There were colourful shells all along the water line and I was dying to collect some, but settled in the end for just a photo.
Really nice start to the trip - just under pressure now to stay up til midnight to see in the new year.
