Necessity

R is for Reminisce
PS135 One late Friday afternoon at Al Sallan Park

A very good place to reminisce the moments (happy or sad) you have had in the past. These past moments have contributed to who you are now and will surely shape who you will be in the future.

J is for Jigsaw puzzle

PS134 Concrete interlocking blocks known as "core loc" weighing approximately 
9 tons were used in the construction of the breakwater in Sohar corniche.

Core-locs used in constructing the breakwater in Sohar corniche interlocks like a "jigsaw puzzle" resulting in a higher stability of the structure even under the presence of a constant massive force from the ocean waves.

Impeccable

PS133 A view of Al Nakhal's village near the foot of the mountain taken from
one of Nakhal Fort's towers.


Nakhal is in the Al Batinah region. It has a lot of "dates" trees as there is a hot spring near the foot of the mountain. Many tourists visit Nakhal on holidays to get a dip in the spring or just have a picnic near or along the shallow part of the wadi. A Fort is one famous monument in this place and it's open for tourists to visit as well. The Fort is constructed on top of a rocky hill and in some parts, the rock is part of the structure. Inside the Fort are historical documents and pieces that gives you an idea of Oman's past.
