In our distant time, travel was simple and close, but it was beautiful, and we were poor, satisfied with any little, and the least things pleased us, amaze our hearts, and bring us joy and newness in our lives. In those past days, the amazement was present, the laughter is not far, and contentment is the master of things.
– The purpose of the summer travel is for the people of the coast to go to Al-Ain, and the people of Al-Ain are not far from the Al-Batinah or Mahdah summer, so that the children can take pride in swimming in the falaj or the ponds that are in the middle of the palm groves and their shady shade. “Zinbaa” make their summer children’s toys from what the palm tree finds, which children ride like an imaginary horse, or they pull their distress like a she-camel that is stretched, or they work from its weeds, “the summer clanking,” rejoicing in the stories they store for their friends when they meet.
The myth of wetness or watching it precede the descent of the palm trees and the genie pluck their moist, and how pleased our souls were when we were asked to carry them decorated with ghee and green blame for the neighbors present from the coasts who do not return them empty, their “lips” do not stop until they close back.
– There were other baskets carrying “hamba”, “farsad”, figs and “lambo” leaking from palm groves to overnight homes that were scented with women’s conversations, and their simple cooking that would leak out to many neighbors’ doors, even if they said: “We wanted you to feed us a little bit from our lunch.” »!
The forenoon meal was for the children of the old time, who rose early with their parents, that meal resting on wicker “sacks” under the shaded lemon tree or the slender palms, and made up of flankers of wheat bread, on which were “gummi” and house fat, and freshly baked freshness, And “Klass” is a mineral milk that is always cold, and that delicious talk about it, which brought health, a cold nap, and the happiness of that summer.
– Summer at that time was usually beautified by rain, which gave the orchards in those oases a cool glow, and joy usually came with the gusts of wind that made little souls jump from their place, and the stories of the evening and its “rides” remain on that “manama” that accommodates everyone. .
– The goal of the summer vacation for some of us was to register in the summer school activity without any study, it was only simple and innovative games, sports and cultural competitions, training in basic life skills, an opportunity to meet students who are not from your school, and to take school trips to the cities of the Emirates.
Summer was innocent in those days, and every year it brought us a new love that grows in the heart, and messages falter in arriving, but the days and the flight of age forward make us forget, and miss the features of some faces, especially when the girl grows up and wears clothes, and becomes cut off from playing Skik or study in Quran schools, then we know that the girl of so-and-so has become a bride, and does not reveal to boys, so we bid her farewell to her in her last summer with silent tears, perhaps she does not know about her, and perhaps I hid her in a warm corner at the outskirts of her heart, and the riders walked with her, or in old cars. Made for the hard time getting past the dunes covering the humps of camels.
