This is something you thought you might not ever see – a veiled Saudi woman clad in her black abaya fishing with her children. I snapped this photo in the late afternoon in a busy area of Jeddah’s Corniche, the coastal area along the Red Sea that extends for miles and miles. This particular area has many beautiful sculptures that I was there photographing when I happened to look over and see this woman and her kids. I think it embodies the amazing spirit, strength, and determination of Saudi women. I am so happy I was able to capture this rare scene and share it with you.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
