Room With a View

It has been nearly two weeks since I moved into the apartment. It has been a hectic time and I still have a lot to do in getting the interior “just right”. In the meantime I have been enjoying living back in Dubai Marina. It is certainly starting to mature with shops and restaurants opening on almost a daily basis along “The Walk” and on the promenade level of the marina itself. I always think that the Dubai Marina at night is very pleasing on the eye, as the night hides the construction.

I grabbed my camera and went walking around the development to grab some photos. However I am seem to have lost my tripod in the move so only a few decent shots came out without too much blur. Here is the main entrance to the development – I really like the neon blue back light:

The neon blue theme is continued through the development with the walk ways lit up. Leaning rather precariously over my balcony, I grabbed this shot which shows the landscaping on the podium really well:

Then looking across from the balcony is the view out of my lounge. This view will continue to get better as more towers get completed in Jumeriah Lake Towers and in the Marina, however this summer the yacht club will open filling the large bay of water with over 150 fancy motor yachts.

After a long hot day what better way to relax but to enjoy an ice cold drink while taking in this view. I think when it all sinks in, I will feel like very lucky man.
