howdy folks. so we have our second batch of visitors in town. my mom, cousin jessyca and cousin aubree arrived a couple of days ago and wasting no time we got out there and started sight seeing. first stop, Arad Fort.
according to the all knowing wikipedia, the arad fort is a 15th century fort known to be used in the 1800s by the omanis when they briefly occupied muharraq island in bahrain. little is actually known about the fort and when it was actually built.
so here are some pics of the mysterious arad fort:
the entry way...
an old cannon...doesn't look anything like my old canon. ;) ha ha ha
the inside of the fort. i'm thinking it was probably a 3 bed/0 bath...with a nice open floor plan.
stairway to heaven...or to the roof top terrace
not sure what this little section was. it looked like it was either a stable or a market. maybe both.
some cool doors...
more cool doors
there were three men refurbishing the moat area. they mixed up some dirt and water and picked up the rocks that fell off the wall of the moat. they threw a handful of mix on the wall and then squished the rock back into place. voila...refurbishment done old school.
