Today was to be our final day in Dubai. Ginny and Sern had some special planned for the afternoon (and night) so this morning we aimed to just chill and amble along around the Dubai Marina area.
Barely five hundred metres away is Marina Mall, a small-ish (by Dubai’s standards) mall located at the waterfront. It was here that Ginny and Sern took us for breakfast.

Opting to be seated outdoors Sern, Cat and I opted for the American breakfast while Ginny opted for the ‘Healthy’ variant. Brendan opted for the Steaks and Eggs.

The breakfast was wholesome and hearty with a homemade look and taste. The décor, furniture and crockery were an exquisite blend of period French and local Emirati which lent to its homeliness. With a splendid view of the Marina our breakfast experience was second to none.

After breakfast we took a stroll along the Marina, and have these parting shots to show for:
We headed back to Nuran to pack up and get ready to check out; soon we will be riding a large four wheel driven sports utility vehicle out of Dubai and into the desert!
