DSC_4222 DSC_4227 DSC_4230 DSC_4234 DSC_4236These dhows, at a corner of the Arad Bay in Bahrain, have seen better days for sure. Gone are the times when solid wooden dhows, made of imported teak from India, ruled the seas around the country, whether engaged in trade with far off lands or fishing.
Dhows are now almost all steel and fiberglass and used primarily for fishing or sightseeing in the surrounding seas!
