I know, I know, yesterday was Wednesday. But the snot monster who has returned to lodge in my head and chest forgot to remind me, and so here we are, Thursday, and no Wednesday Wander written.
So, as I’ve still not managed to dislodge the beast, I’m going to wander somewhere warm. I’ve wandered there before, but this time I’m hoping the reminder of sun and sand and sweet ocean breezes might tempt it away, and I can get back to normal again.
I’m in Morocco, on the coast north of Agadir, where the Atlantic waves roll in. If you’re looking for warmth, this is the place – the food, the people, the very air vibrates with heat, welcoming weary travellers from far and wide.
It is a place of light and roses and the scent of orange blossoms, of lanterns and stone walls and camels by the side of the road. A place where you can go and just be, listening to the waves and watching the sun set, golden, a sense of magic in the air.
I’d like to be there right now, to be honest.
Thanks for coming along on another Wednesday (Thursday) Wander with me – see you next time!

It’s on my list, Helen. I’m amazed I still haven’t been.
I’m amazed too, Mick! I hope you get there, it’s a fabulous place. Hope you’re well x
Thanks, Helen. Yup, reasonably okay. Hope your snot monster moves out soon!
Thanks, Mick, me too! Glad to hear things are okay with you, hope to see you at the Bash again this year 🙂
Probably not. It was fun meeting people, but I struggle with crowds, especially at social events. I’m a one or two person social animal who even hates small dinner parties!
Oh, well, I’m sad to hear that you won’t be there. I understand though – I’m not terribly great with crowds myself. I tend to pick a corner after a while and stay in it!
That’s rather what I did last year – I get overwhelmed.
It can be a bit much, definitely. I totally get it.
I’ve never been, but it’s on my list
Hope you get there one day 🙂
A lovely wander, as always. Hope you feel better soon xx
Thanks so much, Esther – me too! 🙂
Never been Helen, but those photographs are very enticing. Hope you feel better soon, I feel as if I’m coming down with something too. Sigh.. x
It’s a gorgeous place, Marjorie, and definitely what we need at this time of year 🙂 Thanks for your kind wishes and hope you’re not getting sick too – feel better soon xx
Morocco is a great place indeed
Me too! Thanks for commenting 🙂
Hope the beast disappears soon Helen. In the meantime this looks like a great place to recuperate. xo
Thanks, Miriam, if only in my dreams 🙂
It’s a good start. 🙂
I love the colours! You’ve travelled so far and wide—I’m more than a little envious. It’s great you’re keeping up with these posts as well as having a day job now. 🙂
Thanks Louise! It was a gorgeous place for colours, definitely. And I do know I’m fortunate to have seen so many places 🙂 As for keeping up with the posts, I’m doing my best, though I’m woefully behind in visiting other people’s blogs…
I’m the same, and I feel bad about it, but you can’t sit on two horses with one backside, as a friend of mine told me recently! 😉
haha, that’s a brilliant saying! I’ll have to remember that one 😀
And a very appropriate saying, too!
I’d never heard it until she said it, and it completely cracked me up! And it is very apt—I’m going to use it a lot from now on. 🙂
Simply gorgeous. Feel better!
Thanks so much, Allie! Getting there – hope you’re well xx
Beautiful photographs, Helen!
Thanks so much, Penny!
I’ve been wanting to go to Morocco for years! What made me want to go was the first time I tried bastilla. After that, I fell in love with the food and have been yearning to visit ever since.
Oh I love b’stilla! So delicious – and yes, the food there is so very good. Hope you get to try it for real one day x
I do too, along with many other wonderful dishes.
