What a beautiful setting for our little outing this morning...
We took a drive down to madinat souk jumeirah today, here in Dubai. It is one of my favourite places to go in Dubai. It is so gorgeous and there are some lovely shops and restaurants to go to!
The main reason for our visit today though was to see the turtle feeding at the turtle rehabilitation centre at Mina a Salam. Every Wednesday at 11am and Friday at 1pm, you can head down and join in with feeding the turtles.
The turtle rehabilitation centre are doing a fab job of rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing the turtles back into the wild. It would be great to go along to see them release some into the sea one day, so I'll keep an eye out for that. If you would like more info then check out their website; there is a link to their Facebook page there too.
William enjoyed throwing the bits of food in for them, lettuce, carrots and other veg. It was a great free activity to do with William and I enjoyed talking to him about why the turtles were there and that they were being looked after. And to keep mummy happy we had a cheeky milkshake and a browse round the shops! ;)
