Banana Island

Last saturday we were invited on a boat trip to the Banana Island by one of Peter's suppliers. It's important with good relations here:-). We've met at the Four Seasons Marina, wich was fancy indeed, with the biggest jachts I've ever seen... we took a smaller and more down to earth boat however:-)...
It was over 40 degrees Celsius that day (too) but on the boat you couldn't feel it... Soffi was actually sitting still for almost the intire trip (30 minutes), she wasn't willing to wear the lifejacket, but to be honest, there wasn't any in her size, for our next sailing adventure we're gonna come better prepared... but luckily we didn't need it this time...
The island is an other artificial island with the shape of a banana. There is absolutely nothing there, except 10 parasols and like 10 big trashcans. I was expecting something more, since everybody asks you here: Have you been on the Banana Island yet? I mean the water was nice, but that's about all, and when it's 47-48 degrees and you're stuck on an empty island... well...
The kids enjoyed it though...
See, that's what you can do when on the Banana Island:-):
Soffi was making friends with Anne, a Danish girl, she is almost 3 years old, but they liked eachother dispite the age difference: ... and when Soffi had enough fun, she went to sleep:-)... I'm not sure what she will think of us as parents one day when she is 15 and looks at these pictures, all the places we made her sleep:-)... this is one of the funkiest... 47 degrees and 2 m2 of shade... at least we had her pushchair with us:-)... some say, this is the best way of having a nap, outside, with a nice breeze and no need to cover your body, because it's so hot... well, I don't know, but we did have to wake her up after 2 hours when we were leaving:-)
The guys went water skiing and wake-boarding for an hour or so, I am not saying how good Peter is in that, you have to ask him on that:-)... ... here they're back... tired...
... and we started packing and sailed back to Doha... It was a nice trip all in all, and now we can say: Yes, we've been on the Banana Island, thanks very much. :-)
