|Traditional paella...rice with different seafood..this was squid and shrimp. Yummy!!!|
|James had swordfish, I believe.|
|Ella with her new friend...Ella. She and her family were from Ireland. They were so sweet!|
Morocco is just an hour ferry ride across the sea from where we were...well and an hour or so bus ride to the pier. So we decided to take a day trip. Now we can say we have set foot on Africa, if even only for a day. The girls were quite a bit overwhelmed. The locals wanted us to buy EVERYTHING and did not take no for an answer. We are used to Poland where if you say no...that is it. No pressure. We got to go to a traditional restaurant and ate yummy food and even saw a belly dancer. Ella and I took a camel ride. This was not a quality location. These were SAD camels. But we will always be able to say we rode a camel IN Africa. Haha.
Of course we spent time on the beach. It was amazingly beautiful. The water was warmer than the Baltic Sea but still chilly. I am not a fan of pebble beaches. They are just painful to walk on. I know there isn't sand that sticks to everything but I just don't like walking on it. Give me the Polish beaches any day!! I digress...the beach. It was so pretty and the waves were amazing!! I love waves. I am fascinated by them and could sit and watch/listen to them all the time!!
Lastly...the sunrises and sunsets were absolutely breathtaking!! This is one taken the morning we left for Morocco. Our God is an amazing God. He could have made the whole world black and white, and we would have not known a difference. But instead He allowed us to see the amazing beauty that comes in color!
