Yesterday afternoon we left Rabat to spend a few days in Seville, Spain.
This involves about a three hour drive to Tangier on the Straights of Gibraltar.

The boy (not really a boy, but I'm his mother and he'll always be a boy to me) had a short meeting, which gave us a chance to walk around town a bit.

I also wanted to take a picture of the huge rig that scans the cars and contents--minus people. Think airport scanner big enough to scan a line of 5 or 6 cars, including busses. However, the very nice security guy told me that wasn't allowed. No argument from this girl.
I opted for a view of the harbor.

Then we boarded and were off. (Caution: this is noisy. And don't fall overboard!)
The trip across the Straights only takes about half an hour. Plenty of time to eat a snack and take pictures. It also makes for a nice break from driving.

Then, back in the car for a couple hour drive to Seville. By then, it was getting dark. There are miles of windmills along the mountains rimming the coast of Spain. In the distance, the small (relatively speaking) blinking warning lights looked like fireflies. Reminded me of summer nights in Maine and fireflies dancing in the tall grass in the field. Sometimes Dad would catch one for me and put it in a jar beside my bed.
Adiós for now.
