A corniche is a road built along a coast, and practically all big cities on the Arabian peninsula have them (the exception being land-locked Riyadh). We walked from our hotel along the Gulf to the "Pearl Roundabout" which Greg had snapped a photo of during his first deployment.
Souq Watiq wouldn't re-open until around 4pm, we took a boat ride across the harbour to let the kids rest.

The last time I was in Souq Watiq, I took a picture in this same spot. It feels the same and yet, the renovations make it look freshly unfamiliar. We walked this way and that way, feeling the bustle without feeling overwhelmed. At one point near the gold souq, we stumbled upon the store where I bought a "four seasons" carpet during my second deployment to Qatar.
