Fish market- Oman-style



I hope you enjoy these shots from Dibba, Oman. This little section of Oman is detached from the rest of the country. The UAE (United Arab Emirates) divide the country. Zighy bay sits on the gulf of Oman a few miles south of the Straights of Hormuz. If the waters just off the resort beach are anything to go by, these waters are teaming with fish.

We spent the most relaxing few days in the resort of Zighy Bay run by the Six Senses group. Believe me, after the thousands of miles travelled in South Africa, we needed a few days chilling!

The fish is landed at around 4 in the afternoon, when the trading begins.

Rich pickings for lucky cats…

Have a good week!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

i'd love to hear from you...
