Busy Few Days

Over the weekend we had places to go and things to do.

Saturday, we went to Les Trois Palmiers restaurant  for lunch.  This is a fabulous restaurant with a great view of the beach.  

Wonderful food, especially the fish.  Here’s a link if you want to check it out:

Then some time for fun in the sun.

Check out the crazy rocks that look volcanic, except there aren't any volcanoes in Morocco.

Sunday, we planted a garden, hand cultivated by Khalifa.  

                                                                                                    The girls did a great job.  

Now the hardest part, waiting to see what comes up.  Nice, drenching rain last night so that will help.

Today, for my French lesson, my teacher and I visited the Mohammed VI Museum of modern and contemporary art.  Not much actual talking in French, though.  We have very similar tastes in art and quickly disparaged what we didn't like.  I'm going to have to buckle down on Monday.

Here's a couple of my favs.

And a snapshot of the elaborate lattice work on the building.

Here's the link for a closer look: 

Walking home I snapped this pic of the Moroccain version of a wrecking ball.

Plans for the weekend include some shopping in the Medina and Kasbah, assuming the weather is more suitable for shopping than gardens.
