No, not the shopping centre! So yesterday, my husband took a few hours off work and we went `en famille` to Lake Lalla Takerkoust for lunch, a reservoir 30 odd miles away from Marrakech. After a dry winter, the water level looked low. As we left Marrakech, we had passed 3 golf courses being constructed in a space of 10 kilometers.
With it being a gorgeous day and a holiday I thought the lake would be busy with day trippers and pic-nickers ...
...but apart from a few boys swimming and a lone pedalo, a very squeaky pedalo, it was deserted...
We ate a simple lunch at a simple little restaurant. Zaki seemed happy enough..
but was a little nonplussed by the arrival of the salad. Perhaps it was the orange slices? Nope. Vegetables.
Later, I sliced in to the pink and orange fabrics Jennifer sent me for a Siblings Together quilt.
I`ll show you how I got on tomorrow.
