Morocco









What a day! We left at 8 a.m. and got home from our last day trip at 1 a.m. Long day but what an adventure. The ferry is frustrating but it gets you to Morocco in 30 min of engine time about 1 hour in idleness. We were excited going and sleeping coming home. Our guide Aziz was great at informing us about everything we asked and showing us the sites. We'll go on our own next time but well worth the overview this trip. We walked the Kazba (charlene didn't like it), fishmarket, first American Embassy, Protestant church in the middle of town; then rode in a van to see where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic, rode camels, saw some beautiful beaches, ate at a very fun - very yummy Restaurant for lunch and shopped a little. The kids loved the camel rides and C imitates a camel perfectly (it sounds like a wookie). The musicians were entertaining at lunchtime. The rug we purchased is beautiful in our entry way (gold to match the walls). The old section of town is leaning in on itself, no foundations. The newest sections of town looks just like Beverly Hills. The people were very friendly. I hope to venture in farther our next visit to Africa. We enjoyed our last exhausting day together this summer. M and C leave for their colleges tomorrow. We'll see them in December. Our first Thanksgiving apart, makes me sad to think about but I will focus on Christmas to come and the tremendously fun time we had this week together.

These trips sound fantastic. I'm jealous. Keep going! You're almost done selling me on coming over for Christmas! I've got the vacation time.

Great family photo in front of the water. This should be your Christmas Card picture.
