Riding Sand


I was determined to ride my Enfield in the sand- somewhat unsuitable choice of bike and tyres for the task - but it HAD to be done. I managed to persuade two of the riders to give it a go and we headed off


we lined up, facing the nearest sand dune

A bit more encouragement
 Barbara went first

she got halfway up the sand dune

Before losing momentum

and shared her frustration

help was at hand for her

I'd gone in a different direction

and got into difficulties

Stuck but still smiling...

and then off again once more

What a day from wading the river in the morning, to the beautiful monastery and then the camels and the dune riding
