yes , we used to go to Duba to catch lobsters during night. It was one heck of a travel by car from Tabuk but it is worth it ; we could bring home a sack full of lobsters . Yes , i call Tabuk home for me and my family stayed there for 4 years until my resignation from Saudia. I can still remember the names of my saudi friends there Salem al Balawi , Monsoor al Nazzawi ,Shatly ,Saleh Nahas , the District Manager . Maybe someday i will go back to Tabuk with my son for him to see his birth place.
