Out of Hiding

The lagoon at Oualidia
We are out of hiding (from the intense heat) and back in Marrakech. We went to Oualidia on the Atlantic coast, which I have blogged about before here and here. It`s one of my favourite places in Morocco. It has a beautiful lagoon, where the waters are warm and sheltered. It was very hot but at least we got a couple of cool breezy evenings.

We are back in Marrakech, which continues to swelter along with the rest of the country because of the hot and dry Saharan wind called the Chergui.


We swam and ate fresh fish and paella and now we are back.

While things are due to cool down at the weekend, our laptop is melting in the heat poor thing and so I don`t know how often I`ll be able to blog over the next few days. I have a new tablet but haven`t yet worked out how to get photos from my laptop on to it.  So I hope you`ll bear with me while I am slow to catch up on blog reading and emails.  This is the Moroccan equivalent of `snow on the lines`.  My UK readers will know what I mean!

Back soon.  I can`t wait to see what you`ve all been up to!

That lagoon looks wonderful what a great place to visit.
I'm sorry it is soooo hot - I know I moan about our cold wet weather but I can imagine that intense heat is way too much as well.

Beautiful beach! It reminds me of my time in Southwest India. Stay cool and drink lots of fluids. ;)

I remember when you took me there... Maybe one day for real. I hope you unmelted soon.

Oh my goodness, if we could mix our two climates together we'd probably have the perfect comfort zone!
