Serendipity in Muscat

Wander up through the old town in Muscat and you can find a path that takes you to a door in the lee wall of Muttrah fort

Having explored the old town  I eventually came to that door and knocked. I wasn’t really expecting an answer so I was quite surprised when the door was opened by, I presume, the caretaker. He very courteously, allowed me to spend an hour or so exploring the fort and admiring the view back across the harbour and along the corniche.

I was taking a couple of photo’s from the parapet of the fort when I saw something move out of the corner of my eye, on the rock slope next to the fort wall. There close enough to almost touch was a desert fox. She looked at me and I looked at her the moment stretching out, then blink, she was gone.
