Summer lumps

Summer time in the Middle East usually provides lake like conditions and a rapid increase in water temperature. Not only does this form high humidity levels but also an ideal stagnant breeding ground for unwanted stinging jellies. We were fortunate enough to win a few days of northerly winds, pushing some lumps down the Arabian Gulf and onto Emirati shores. In turn this lowered the air and water temperature, kicked up some swell, and swept away most of those shady ass stingers.
