Dubai Daily – Day 19


Looking at the picture above, it is clear that I am trying to emulate a young Grace Kelly here. Unfortunately for me, however, wind and naturally wispy hair have conspired against me and I am arguably a little closer to Grace Coddington. Don’t get me wrong, the woman is fierce, but she’s hardly the epitome of maritime chic.  <!–more–> Oh well, at least I look nonchalant. Spotted that? Good. That is the satisfaction of a woman who has just succeeded in eating her own weight in seafood. The site of said victory was the 101 restaurant on The Palm. Reached by boat ride from the mainland, this place is basically on a pontoon, and is the perfect spot for a long, boozy lunch with friends. Ours was perhaps a little too long and a little too boozy, though, as we quite literally missed the boat.
