Countryside



The Barrage is one of our favorite places.
You can eat by the lake.



And look up towards the Atlas Mountains.



The ground is very hard and dry - almost like concrete.




The sky is such an amazing blue.

totally gorgeous. Hard not to be a painter in that landscape and with the colors that surround you.

You have the best pictures.

How warm is the lake?

Dear Barrie
the last time I swam in it - last May - it was 'brisk'. ie rather chilly but do-able. I saw people swimming here at the end of January ....I was not tempted but very soon...

Amazing, beautiful photos.

I'm particularly drawn to the last photo. Those bushes in the foreground compliment the blue of everything else so well.

I will never forget the unbelievable blue of the sky in Morocco. I was in the port of Tangier and we took a "town and country" tour; our bus driver's name was Ahmed, he was friendly and had a way with words. We drove all over Tangier and the surrounding countryside; we saw what was at the time Malcolm Forbe's house....and dromedaries...but the blue of the sky really struck me, it was like enamel, such a saturated blue that I have never seen anywhere else, before or since.

There is a Moroccan restaurant in my town, called "The Sultan's Tent" and when I go there, I imagine I am back in Morocco, sipping mint tea and admiring the gorgeous glazed Moroccan tile and the beautiful Moroccan lanterns. You are truly blessed to have the opportunity to spend time in that enchanted corner of the world.

The panaromic views of the lake are quite amazing.

this is my patch said...

Beautiful blue sky. Ours here in the UK today is a wishy-washy grey, not very nice at all. We mustn't forget grey is a colour, if not a very pleasing one in my eyes. x
