We docked in Muscat, Omen, the Capital of the country where we took a tour that went into the mountains of Jebel Sham that were 125 miles from the port. At the foot hills of the mountains we visited a fort in the town of Nakhl. We then proceeded up the Wadi Bani Auf canyon on narrow roads to the mountain village of Bilad Sait, stopping along the way for a picnic lunch. At sunset we sailed out of Muscat passing the large incense burner monument, the Qasr Al Alam Palace and the old Portuguese forts and lookout towers that are around the harbor.
