Well Worth The Money...Twice

Our tickets - and we even showed up on the right night!

 We actually got to see him! (Big Sigh of contented relief...)
 
It took two tries with a few years in between, but last Friday night, along with 15,000 or so other adoring fans, we witnessed some real Eric Clapton magic happen.

Can't believe I waited so long to use this!


Abu Dhabi Airport














The Quick-n-Dirty On Our EC Night...
We had a smooth flight over (where I discovered the pure JOY of my Kindle... amazing how a flight without a squirming kid can be downright enjoyable!)...
Checked into a very cool hotel room...
Had a scrumptious dinner just before sun set on an outdoor patio facing the water (with a minty mojito in hand)...
Then off to the concert with a fun group of new friends...

And...

EC sang and played his heart out, and I said a silent prayer of thanks to the Big Guy, as my husband happily bopped to the beat next to me, that neither EC nor C & I had any 'incidents' that prevented us from finally being in the same place at the same time. Completely awesome show on a warm moonlit night in Abu Dhabi...Yay!
Great night. Really, really great night.

Abu Dhabi was a whirlwind trip for us, but we liked what we saw. The process to let us crazy Canadians in through customs & immigration wasn't even that bad. I think we will go back - perhaps a shopping weekend?

PS - Ella survived her first night away from me very nicely, thanks to my mama. Thanks Mum! 

A most excellent weekend.
