Date Orchards

After the tour, we roamed around the date orchards out back. Apparently this particular area is sitting on top of a natural well so they have lots of water for irrigation. There were hundreds of trees out back with ducks, peacocks and rumors of oryx and other gazelle type animals (saw the birds but not the others). Did see dates growing – and I never knew what they looked like so here’s a picture!
